BISMARCK -- The North Dakota Game and Fish Department is advising all hunters in southwest North Dakota to be mindful of wet conditions on rural roads brought on by last weekend's snowstorm and Friday's rainfall.

North Dakota's pheasant season opens Saturday.

In addition, the department is asking hunters to watch for ranchers moving cattle and power company crews fixing lines, and make sure to not block roadways.

"The pheasant opener is a longstanding tradition in North Dakota and many hunters make their plans months in advance," North Dakota Game and Fish Department Director Terry Steinwand stated in a release. "We want hunters to enjoy the weekend, but we also want them to know this was an unprecedented snowstorm in some areas, and there is more rain in the forecast before the weekend, so we urge extra care in areas where road and field conditions are wet."
