How is this number deter- mined? A: Since 1955, the Minnesota DNR has conducted annual roadside sur- veys during the first two weeks of August to estimate pheasant abun- dance. These surveys entail counting all pheasants observed while driving each of 152 survey routes - one to four routes per county - in Minnesota's pheasant range. DNR wildlife staff survey these 25-mile long routes in the early mornings on days with clear skies, light winds, and heavy dew. Because pheasants are difficult to count, techniques used to determine population estimates for other wildlife species do not work with pheasants. Thus, the annual August roadside sur- veys do not provide a total census, but rather an index of relative abundance. This information is then used to mon- itor changes in the pheasant popula- tion over time. The results of the survey are report- ed in early September and provide a good forecast of the upcoming pheas- ant hunting season. Nicole Davros, DNR wildlife biologist Q: Finding a place to ride an all- terrain vehicle (ATV) or other off- highway vehicle (OHV) takes a little research. Are there different levels of riding choices - from novice to adventurous? How can riders find the trail that fits their needs? A: Minnesota is using the standard symbols to identify level of difficulty. The symbols are: green circle - easiest that include the most developed, almost road-like trails with rolling hills and few obstacles; blue square - more difficult, narrower trails with steeper hills and switchbacks and some moderate obstacles; and black diamond - most difficult or technical with very steep grades, narrow trails, rough or loose tread surfaces and obstacles. Most public OHV trails are Local Weather 90/68 Plenty of sun. Highs in the low 90s and lows in the upper 60s. . ..... 89/65 Mainly sunny. Highs in the upper 80s and lows in the mid 60s. 87/67 Mainly sunny. Highs in the upper 80s and lows in the upper 60s. 83/52 Abundant sunshine. Highs in the low 80s and lows in the low 50s. 77/58 Abundant sunshine. Highs in the upper 70s and lows in the upper 50s.
