HOT STEPPER? Weird weather and dry conditions are topics of discussion today as we look through the week toward Friday’s bow opener. Will this be the chill that helps get deer moving, or will things get warm again for a sweltering sit at the start of the season? We’ll see, in today’s Three Things.

CHILL. Cool conditions dominate today and tomorrow, with strong east winds bringing scattered shots of rain across the region. Temps don’t rebound until later in the week, just in time for the bow opener.
DRY. The latest Drought Monitor shows a creeping swath of abnormally dry and low-level conditions across much of North Dakota heading into the fall, with more than 75 percent of the state with some color.
AND TAG. Don’t forget to pick up your archery deer tag at the NDG&F office, or a local vendor. If ordering online, tomorrow should be your mental deadline, to make sure it gets to you in the mail by noon on Friday for the bow opener!
