THE BIG ONES. The NDG&F has released success statistics for last year’s issued Bighorn Sheep, Moose and Elk tags in the state. Bighorn hunters went three-for-three, while 92 percent of moose hunters and 65 percent of elk hunters were successful.
TAGGED. The Missouri River Clay Target League is conducting a statewide whitetail deer tag raffle as part of this year’s Special Allocation charity tags issued by the state. Funds will be used to defray the cost of ammo and targets in the coming seasons. Learn more and where to buy tickets at mrctl.org
