AW SNAP. A couple of cold days stand ahead of a snowy weekend and a serious bottoming out next week. We keep an eye on that and developments at the legislature along with a sign of spring in today’s Three Things.

SLOW CLIMB… The roller coaster continues as we slowly eek our way out of sub-zero temperatures after today, but like any good amusement park ride, there’s a big drop waiting. -30 degree air temperatures are a possibility across the state, so keep that big coat ready for action.
THINK SPRING. Despite the forecast, hunters should think spring as the NDG&F has released turkey applications online for ND residents. The application period closes on Feb. 13 and the season opens on Apr. 13
TESTIFY! The hearing for SB 2315 (the “everything’s posted” bill) will be at 8:30 am tomorrow in the Roosevelt Room (though this is subject to change) at the state capital in Bismarck. Sportsmen are encouraged to attend the session and share their point of view on the value of the public-access status of unposted lands and how this would impact them and the hunting heritage in our state.
