Daily Edge for Sat. Jan. 5

WHAT’S NEW?  Besides the moon, there’s much to look forward to in this new year. Between a warmer-than-average forecast (we won’t pay for this in spring, right?), a new season of shooting sports, and new chances for hunters, there’s lots to celebrate, starting with today’s Three Things.

NEW SEASON.  The 2019 North Dakota State High School Clay Target League will kick off its spring season at the end of March, and registration for new teams in the state is open now.  Last spring over 1,400 students participated state wide as part of the league and nearly 60 schools participated – a jump of 55% over the previous year.  Expect a similar rise this spring! Sign-ups for current teams are also going on now!


NEW OUTLOOK.  NOAA’s long range outlooks for the next 30 to 90 days snow a continued warm bias over, well, basically North Dakota, in the upper Midwest.  Unfortunately, the government shutdown has disabled the more detailed El Nino program for now.


NEW CLASS.  A number of new hunter education classes have opened up around the state.  For anyone looking to participate in CTL and of course to get in the field next fall, check out the sign-up page on the NDG&F “Buy and Apply” site.



Stay Sharp!
