Paint It Red. Get ready for a sight with the “Super Wolf Blood Moon” lunar event slated for Sunday night. This year’s only lunar eclipse gets its name from the combination that this full moon is the closest one of the year, January’s full moon is known as the “Wolf Moon” and a lunar eclipse creates a shadow that makes the moon appear reddish in color. For viewing times and locations (including all of North & South America in totality) check out spacetourismguide.com. Unfortunately, things are looking mostly cloudy for Sunday evening.
For A Lifetime. One of the more sportsman-friendly bills in front of the ND Legislature is the “Lifetime License” bill, allowing for the creation of a lifetime fishing license. While details in the text are sparse and open-ended, it’s a long overdue option as many states offer licensure for life.
Layer Up. Base layers help maintain body heat and hold it close to the skin. The ribbed or criss-crossed fabric in long johns and thermal shirts help trap tiny pockets of air and keep them warm next to your body. You’ll need some help this weekend as temperatures dip – layer up and have a warm permanent shack to base camp out of for your fishing adventures.
