THREE THINGS:

 

TOE THE LINE.  We sit on the northern edge of a boundary that will keep most of the moisture and weather action to the south and east of us.  A few flakes through midweek can’t be ruled out, but the worst looks to sweep over SD and MN.

BIG MONEY.  The Pittman-Robertson excise tax generated more than $1 Billion in 2018 to be doled out by the US FWS to the fifty states for better outdoor access and conservation programs.  A state-by-state apportionment can be viewed here.

 

READ ON.  It’s time to check a couple more books off the reading list.  If you love the outdoors, Field & Stream has a great checklist for the sixty books every outdoorsman should read. How many do you have on your shelf?

 

Stay Sharp!
