HEAD DOWN. One more cool, gusty day for the region before an autumnal paradise (relatively speaking) sets in. In the meantime, plan your hunts, your sits and your late-season fishing trips as we look ahead to the week in today’s Three Things.

MODEL CONCEPT. The North American Conservation Model has been in play for over 100 years, changing the way the world looks at the management of fish and game. With the passing of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act in 1918, laws began to create the framework for the model and provide continued guidance and expectation for the management of wildlife.
CHECK IT. If you’re looking for a quick check of the wind, grab some seeds from a milkweed plant (in our featured photo) and give them a toss. It’s a great method to decide on where to approach a hunt from, and how to avoid sending your scent to a bedded deer’s nose. Nature often provides the answers to many of our outdoors problems!
