Drought reduced pheasant, grouse and Hungarian partridge harvest counts to about 50 percent across the board, according to Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks Havre-area biologist Scott Hemmer. Sharp-tailed were down 58 percent in the long term, while Hungarian pheasants were down 52 percent. He felt that the drought conditions hurt the survival of the young birds.
