    Hoping this extreme cold will not hurt the pheasant population too much, but depending on what kind of cover the birds did or didn't find it is certainly possible that it could severely hurt numbers...

    I agree 100% with everything you stated. From your 3rd sentence to never having hunted ND, clear through the last sentence. As great as it is for sportsman, the landowners are the landowners.
