Daily Edge for Tue. Nov. 6

SLIVERS & SHIVERS.  As we approach tomorrow’s new moon, strong winds and spitting snow flurries will be the tale of the day as gusts up to 35 mph will keep would-be hunters indoors.  Everyone needs a prep day anyhow with firearms deer opener just 3.5 days away!  With that, we find more good deer news in today’s Three Things.

THREE THINGS:

MULEY MAGIC.  Good news from out west as the NDG&F Dept. completed its annual fall aerial survey of mule deer populations.  Fawn production is up and the buck-to-doe ratio of .43 increased over last year. The survey area covers more than 300 square miles of badland habitat.

 

HALFWAY THERE.  USDA numbers for North Dakota show about half of the corn statewide as being harvested – good news for deer hunters (and all hunters, really) as the season approaches.  With a wet back half of last week, only 4.5 days were suitable for harvest.  It’ll be a flip-flop as things dry out into the back stretch of this week.

 

VOTE CONSERVATION.  Today it’s not about Red or Blue, it’s about camo and orange – the colors of the state’s largest voting block – SPORTSMEN!  Vote for the candidates that support conservation, public access and our hunting heritage. Hunters, anglers and naturalists make up more than 20 percent of North Dakota’s population and our collective voice is LOUD!  Let ‘em hear it at the polls today!

 

Stay Sharp!
