HEAD FOR THE HILLS. Windy conditions may keep many hunters in during the middle portion of the week, but things should straighten up some by the time the weekend rolls around. We look at those conditions and more in today’s Three Things.

GUSTY. Winds today and tomorrow will top 30 mph across much of North Dakota as instability and a chance for rain persists on the breezes, things settle a little on Thursday, but nice conditions don’t return til Friday. Take these days to get ready for the upcoming youth pheasant opene and sit down with a young hunter to talk about what to expect in the field.
FAMILY FUN. The weather should hold out for Sunday’s Teddy Roosevelt Family Day at McDowell Dam east of Bismarck. With a number of fun and exciting outdoor events including archery, BB guns, animal idenfication and more, it’s a great way to introduce young people to a variety of outdoor skills!
HALVSIES. Today is the last day of the year for day length being longer than darkness, with 12 hours and one minute of daylight. We won’t be back into positive daylight territory until late March, 2019! (**Audible sobs**)
