In east central ND the upland hatch looks ok, but the ducks have renested many times from predation. I've seen few hatches of mallards so far. Jumped one covey of pheasants in early June that could fly already, and the grouse are doing fine. Haying here didn't affect it much. Last year when the CRP was hayed off, it made better cover this year. I burned a piece early last spring that looks great now.
