LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Authorities say prospects look good for people hunting pheasant, quail and partridge in Nebraska.

The seasons opened Saturday for the upland birds. The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission says pheasant and quail numbers are higher than the five-year average over most of the state.

Surveys indicate pheasant abundance is higher in the central and Sandhills regions, compared to 2015. Abundance in other regions of the state is predicted to be similar or slightly lower than 2015.

Quail numbers continue to be high across the species’ Nebraska range.

The hunting seasons for pheasant, quail and partridge end Jan. 31.
