The hunting season for Marsh hens is extensive, as is the number of Marsh hens. Marsh hens may be hunted statewide from September 22- November 11, and November 17 - December 15. Marsh hens are a great way to stock the freezer, and with a limit of 15 a day, a decent hunter can stock up. Quail and rabbit may be hunted November 17- February 29. There is plenty of time for quail and rabbit hunting. Opossum season, October 15 - February 29, coincides partially with quail and rabbit season.

The Northern Marianas Islands Comprehensive Wildlife Conservation Strategy also includes actions to treat abatement by mitigating existing threats including pollution, predation and competing species and with other conservation action plans that have not been covered previously. Monitoring the Comprehensive Wildlife Conservation Strategy in South Dakota will begin with the employment of existing inventories and surveys, which includes any monitoring done by conservation partners. Monitoring will continue with surveys, remote sensing, satellite imagery, disease and movement monitoring, breeding site survey sampling, DNA and net sampling, herpetological web site, predictive modeling, ground truthing and taxonomic affinities an reclassification. Population, habitat and project-level monitoring are also included in the South Dakota CWCS as well as distribution information, length frequency distributions, community-level monitoring and replication. These performance measures provide information that pertains to conservation actions and provide for revisions to these actions if needed. The conservation action and proposed plans for GCN species and habitat monitoring occurs with help from several partners. These partners include but are not limited to the Partners in Flight, the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission, the Pennsylvania Game Commission, the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, The Nature Conservancy, the Pennsylvania Land Trust, the Pennsylvania Association of Environmental Professionals and the Pennsylvania Association of Environmental Educators. Other partners are the International Association of Fish an Wildlife Agencies, the Bureau of Land Management, the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration, the Xerces Society, the United States Department of Agriculture, the United States Environmental Protection Agency, the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, United States Forest Service and the United States Geological Service. The Pennsylvania Comprehensive Wildlife Conservation Strategy will have an ongoing informal evaluation that focuses on needs and strategies. There will also be a 5 year audit that will hopefully answer the question as to if the program is progressing adequately. An extensive formal review is scheduled to occur every 10 years.
