MERRY CHRISTMAS! From all of us at Dakota Edge Outdoors, have a peaceful and and joyous Christmas! The timing of tomorrow’s storm will allow you to enjoy the holiday and try out that new shotgun or ice rod that Santa dropped off. We give the system one more look and go around the horn in today’s Three Things.

GROWING GAINS. Sunset hits at 5PM tonight, as the evening hours grow lighter. We’ll have to wait until Jan. 7 to gain time on sunrise, but our long crawl out of the darkness of winter has begun.
