OUT OF THE FREEZER. Temps will rise today and through the night as light south winds and cloud cover help things stabilize. We may even see 20 degrees tomorrow! (and 35 by Thursday?!?) It’s a newsworthy weekend with information from around the state and country on hunting, habitat helping a unique creature and more in today’s Three Things

OUT OF DANGER. A US FWS report shows a rebound by the Canada lynx throughout the U.S. may warrant its delisting as a “threatened” species under the Endangered Species Act. Through management plans and cooperative efforts with landowners and habitat programs, a study shows positive trends for the species across its range in the U.S.
OUT OF STATE. The NDG&F will issue 502 any-deer bow licenses to non-residents in 2018, via lottery and if any tags remain, they will be issued first-come first-served. The number is determined based on taking 15 percent of last year’s mule deer firearms tags.
OUT OF SIGHT. In just a couple weeks, January’s second full moon will be subject to a total lunar eclipse. While you won’t need the fancy glasses to see it all, you will have to wake up early as the event happens from 4 to 8 a.m., with moonset and sunrise ending the celestial show. We’ll give you one more warning before the big event, as a blue moon lunar eclipse doesn’t happen often. The last was when Reagan was President.
Digest those and Stay Sharp!
