Daily Edge for Thu. Apr. 25

ENJOY! Today begins our downward temperature trend, though conditions will still be good into Thursday night before a noticeable shift for your weekend fishing trip takes hold.  We address the unpleasant long-term forecast, scholarship opportunities for wildlife enforcement and the crowing of rooster pheasants in today’s Three Things

THREE THINGS:

COLD SNAP.  The long-range forecast is looking…well, long.  As cold conditions settle in over the region for most of next week, spring anglers will have to adjust from a recent run of good weather to more challenging days ahead, with accumulating snow possible by Monday.

THE RIGHT ‘SHIP.  Scholarships are available to those high schoolers or college students looking to pursue an education and career in wildlife enforcement and related fields. The ND Game Wardens Association, along with the Ray Goetz Memorial Fund and Kupper Chevrolet are accepting applications now.

COUNTING CROWS. Mornings in pheasant country this time of year provide a heightened opportunity to listen to the crowing of roosters establishing their spring territory.  Check out the call recordings from Cornell Ornithology, and see how many different birds you can hear in a day!

 

Stay Sharp!
