WE’RE ABOUT TO BLOW!  Relatively calm conditions persist through tonight, but a huge shift in the wind is coming for tomorrow’s Pheasant Opener as forecasts now add an extra 10 mph to the maximum gusts.  Hold on to your blaze orange hats!   We go potpourri in today’s Three Things.

THREE THINGS

THE ABC’S OF DEER DISEASE.  From CWD to EHS, Dr. Dan Grove, NDG&F Dept. Wildlife Veterinarian explains the headliner diseases that affect our state’s deer populations.  Dr. Grove discusses transmission, impact on populations and more in this week’s webcast.

DROUGHT DYING. Much of the state has found relief in the latter stretch of summer from the drought which plagued us from April to August. This week’s drought monitor shows about 98 percent of the state in Severe Drought or less, with more than a quarter of ND in normal conditions.

BURY THE LEAD MUCH!?  By the way, if you couldn’t tell from the recent layout here, it’s PHEASANT OPENER TOMORROW!  Be safe, have fun, and let us know how you do and what you see out there!

Stay Sharp!
