BREATHE EASY! Here’s hoping you dodged the snow storm yesterday and were able to hunker down if you were under the bullseye! Take a deep breath, dig out and get ready for a nice pair of days before winds return for the weekend to add some (more) challenges to your hunts. We talk about that and more in today’s Three Things.

A DUMPING. Areas south of Jamestown and Valley City saw the brunt of yesterday’s snow as more than a foot was reported along the southern James and Sheyenne River Valleys. The cutoff for the event was the stretch from Steele to Tappen, and points west received little precipitation as part of the swirling system.
FIND REFUGE. The US Fish & Wildlife Service is preparing to celebrate the nation’s system of wildlife refuges.
