THE TRANSPORTER. As deer and other big game seasons approach, hunters are reminded of the need to slow the spread of CWD.  With that, heightened restrictions on transport of big game animals based on where they’re from are in place for the autumn of 2018.  Learn more at the NDG&F Department’s page for this year’s requirements.

RUNNING MAN.  September is a great time for outdoor exercise, and there are a number of fun races spread throughout ND as things cool off and those miles seem to melt away a bit easier.  Our pick for the month is the Bismarck Marathon, with full, half and 10/5k events.

JURASSIC PARK-ISH? Scientists in Colorado have identified a small subset of rainbow trout that are genetically immune to the crippling effects of whirling disease, a parasite that attacks and deforms juvenile trout, decimating populations in a number of flows.  By capturing and spawning ready males and females from this group, the biologists are able to breed the disease-resistant strain into the primary population, according to this story by CBS.

Stay Sharp!
