EDGE HOUR. 9:00 – 10:00PM. Combine sunset with the sneaky-good hour of moon underfoot for a fantastic 60 minutes of fishing at the end of the day. Winds may have shifted to the east, but they’ll be light and won’t affect the bite in the least.
200% FUNDED. If you coach a youth trap team or other youth shooting sports organization, there is an incredible promotion on right now which can guarantee a 200% return on your investment. Currently, the MidwayUSA Foundation is matching all donations to a team’s endowment at a 2:1 rate. Put in $20,000 – they’ll make it $60,000. Your team gets up 5% of that back each year over 20 years (or more), for long-term funding with incredible ROI and a solid base fund to start each season.
PADDLE ON. The North Dakota Game & Fish Dept. is sponsoring two courses for women looking to learn how to kayak and stand-up paddleboard. The events, held at McDowell Dam on Aug. 12 and Harmon Lake on Aug. 10, respectively, are open to women age 18 and up.
