Daily Edge for Thu. Jan. 3

THAWING OUT. We’ll take it when we can get it, but it looks like the early-January warmer-than-average conditions will stay with us into the weekend, opening things up for better access on the ice and in those last few pheasant fields. We go around the horn with news and updates in today’s Three Things.

THREE THINGS:

 

BOGEYS.  Staying on target isn’t always easy, even at this late point in the season.  HunterEd.com has some tips for leading targets and snap shooting at those close flushers, and things to consider for next year’s bird hunting seasons.

 

BIRDIES. The ND Birding Society has a great site designed to help observers identify a wide range of species, from birds of prey to songbirds.  User-submitted photos are periodically uploaded of both common and rare species in our area, and the society provides tips for those looking to find certain birds in the Peace Garden State.

 

EAGLES. From the east, the Minnesota DNR has announced a number of birds visiting the eagle cam nest and anticipates a sixth consecutive season of live-broadcast chick rearing.  The setup is funded by the state’s non-game wildlife program and provides continuous coverage throughout the spring.

 

Stay Sharp!
