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.

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!
