Daily Edge for Fri. Oct. 12

FEELS GOOD. With temps touching 50, things will feel warm, despite that high being below average.  Use today to get out and kick your weekend off with a little hunting or fishing, as conditions deteriorate rapidly overnight. We talk about that and more in today’s Three Things.

EDGE ‘EM.  On warmer days, look for pheasants using grass away from thermal cover that leads up to a food source like a cut field or other foraging area.  Targeting these productive areas where birds can warm up and move about will bring success.

GUSTY.  Tomorrow’s forecast will provide a challenge for hunters as gusts rise to 35 mph at mid-day. Get out early or late for the least windy conditions.

LAME DUCKS.  Members of Congress working on the revamp of this year’s Farm Bill – a huge source of conservation funding and the program which sets CRP and other set aside quotas – have kicked the can down the road until after the mid-term elections.  We’ll see what comes of those discussions, as SNAP terms still hold conservation programs hostage.


Stay Sharp!
