SWITCH! Winds return as gusty north breezes sweep over the region and we keep tabs on deer tags, tying supplies and the last of the summer fruit in today’s Three Things.

TAG IN. 90 licenses remain on a first-come first-served basis for antlerless whitetails in units 3F2, 3F1 and 4F for this November’s firearms deer hunting season. Licenses can be purchased online at the NDG&F licensing page for those hunters who have not yet received a license through the standard lottery process.
TIE ON. Now’s the time to start straightening up that fly desk and lure making workshop before the season hits. Take stock of materials on hand and those that need to be ordered so they’re in good supply. Snag a bird or two – pheasants, partridge and grouse – and save their pelts for the upcoming tying season as well.
DROP OUT. With freezing temperatures having occurred across the state, watch for the last of the soft mast food items – apples, plums, berries – to start hitting the ground and drawing in deer. As field crops come in, deer will turn to these sweet food sources.
