ALL DOWNHILL. After today things will slip and slide into the weekend as temperatures drop, precip picks up and a chance at a four-letter word comes back into Sunday. We talk about that, the final stretch for SB 2315 and deer hunting numbers in today’s Three Things.

KILL BILL, VOL 2. SB 2315 has returned for a final vote TODAY with much of what the ND House struck added back in by the conference committee. The new version fragments sportsmen into factions, frustrates the recovery of wounded game, and prevents non-hunting access to unposted lands, which would overturn the law, right and privilege of every person in ND for the last 90 years.
DEER STATS. The NDG&F has released the tallies from the 2018 deer hunting seasons. 64 percent of hunters were successful in harvesting their quarry by firearm, and a record 28,824 bow licenses were issued by the agency last fall.
DON’T LOOK NOW. A cool down and a slap of snow is possible this weekend as temps drop into the 40s for highs and chilly spring air takes hold. While it won’t stick, it’s a reminder that not even April is a “safe” month from the s-word.
