THREE THINGS:

KEEP COOL.  For harvested game and fish, keeping them cool is the key to the best quality meat and fillets.  Have a cooler with ice handy in the field or in the boat to preserve your smaller species, and hang deer on cool days, but take care to watch the thermometer on those warmer stretches.

 

CWD CONCERNS.  The NDG&F will be monitoring for chronic wasting disease (CWD) in the western portion of the state and hunters are encouraged to submit the heads of their harvested deer to sample sites throughout the region.  For locations, visit the NDG&F website.  

 

RARE BIRD.  One of North Dakota’s rarest upland birds is the Sage Grouse.  With sparse populations located in the southwest corner of the state, the bird’s primary range is found in points west of ND, including Montana, Wyoming and other pre-mountain grass and scrublands.  Learn more about this unique bird via the FWS website.

 

Stay Sharp!
