Just 62,000 Minnesota pheasant hunters went afield last fall, and they bagged only 169,000 roosters. That's the fewest hunters and lowest harvest in 27 years. Hunter numbers declined 19 percent and the harvest was down 32 percent from 2012. Hunters likely were responding to a huge loss of habitat, poor nesting weather and a corresponding large drop in the ringneck population in recent years. Last year, the pheasant population dropped 29 percent, and the state has recently lost more than 100 square miles of grassland habitat in the pheasant range. "It's likely the result of people seeing poor reports…and they just don't bother buying a license,'' said Lou Cornicelli, DNR wildlife research manager. "It's not like deer hunting, where regardless of density, most hunters buy a license.'' Cornicelli said the reduction in pheasant harvest was primarily due to the decline in hunter numbers.

Your guide to the best Festival betting offers >> History may not rate the form of Tuesday's Unibet Champion Hurdle as the greatest ever run but it terms of a horserace it was the essence of what Cheltenham’s annual Festival is all about; Buveur d’Air, the 4-6 favourite but a Champion made to fight, finally over-hauling Melon in the last 50 yards in as pulsating a finish as you are likely to see all week. It was Buveur d’Air’s second win in Britain’s premier hurdle and his trainer Nicky Henderson’s seventh and while those who backed the victor to win less than they wagered might have preferred the luxury of a more comfortable success, the denouement of this year’s Champion will have tested weak hearts. “There was not a lot between them today,” said winning owner JP McManus sagaciously, “but enough – which counts.” What might step up and make a race of it with the red-hot favourite was the big question … [Read more...] about Buveur d’Air digs deep to win second Champion Hurdle on day one of Cheltenham Festival
13 March 2018 • 5:04pm Buveur D'Air retains Champion Hurdle crown by seeing off Melon. Cheltenham Festival 2018 tips: Day one best bets Your guide to the best Festival betting offers >> Buveur D'Air was made to pull out all the stops to successfully defend his crown in the Unibet Champion Hurdle at Cheltenham. Nicky Henderson's charge had sauntered to success on his previous three starts this season and was the 4-6 favourite to become the first horse to win back-to-back renewals of the race since Hardy Eustace in 2004 and 2005. The winner's stablemate Charli Parcs was ridden forcefully, challenging 2015 Champion Hurdle hero Faugheen for the lead for much of the two-mile journey. It was clear some way from home Faugheen was not travelling with his old zest and in the end it was his stablemate Melon who proved the biggest threat to the reigning champion. There was little to choose between the pair jumping the final flight and both fought tooth … [Read more...] about Cheltenham Festival 2018 day one live: tips, race updates and results as Buveur D’Air wins the Champion Hurdle
