CAT DOWN. A mountain lion was shot and killed near the Bismarck Municipal Ballpark yesterday morning, according to the Bismarck Tribune. The 1 to 2-year-old male cat was reported early in the morning and then tracked and dispatched by local police along with NDG&F agents. The lion had been caught previously and tagged by the agency in October, near Regent.
UV GOT IT. The growing hype around UV-treated lures with paint schemes and coatings which reflect the invisible spectrum of light has some scientific background to it. Learn what it’s all about in this Field & Stream expose. Needless to say, the market is growing and this addition to catch anglers in the tackle aisle – also catches fish.
KINDA CALM. There’s no snow on the long-range sensors as we inch our way into the middle of January. Additionally, no bone-chilling cold is on tap either, as temps remain in the 20s throughout the forecast for the next week or so. Enjoy!
