Pronghorn Survey Begins Mid-June
North Dakota Ag Connection - 06/12/2019

The North Dakota Game and Fish Department's annual aerial pronghorn survey is set to begin with a secondary survey slated for mid-June, with the main survey scheduled for July 1-10.

During the survey period, people could notice low-flying small airplanes over some parts of western North Dakota.

The survey is used to determine pronghorn abundance, herd demographics and fawn production. This data is used to set the number of licenses for fall hunting season.

Last year's survey results indicated the fawn-to-doe ratio was 62 fawns per 100 does, which was equal to the long-term average. The buck-to-doe ratio of 45 bucks per 100 does was above the population objective.
