Daily Edge for Wed. Oct. 17

AAANNND…PERFECT! Today’s temps in the high 50s and light winds will bring with them the onset of buck fever, or pheasant flu, or some other outdoors ailment.  Luckily, the cause is the cure as well, and you’ll be able to get out for your fix on this perfect fall day.  We talk about that and more in today’s Three Things.

THREE THINGS:

LIGHTEN UP.  With warm days settling in for the near stretch, watch for upland birds to utilize lighter cover.  Focus on those grasses where they can air out, dry off and run with ease.  Especially as crops come down in the coming days, light cover next to fields will be the ticket to success.

 

GOOD NEWS.  Reports were good to great for many of North Dakota’s lakes, including Sakakawea and Devils Lake in this year’s fall fisheries surveys by the NDG&F.  Many small lakes report bigger young-of-the-year fish as well, suggesting survival of this year class should be good into 2019.

 

WATERED DOWN.  It’s good to pack a large jug of water in your hunting rig, no matter the pursuit.  For cleaning out a gutted deer, freshwater works best.  For watering a dog after a long hunt, having a container handy is key, and the leftover water – separated from dog drool – can help keep you hydrated as well!

 

Stay Sharp!
