Daily Edge for Wed. 8/14 – Newsworthy

RECOVERY DAY.  Following Monday’s rain and Tuesday’s wind, a near ideal day will combine with the August full moon to restart a stretch of awesome fishing headed into the weekend. There is lots of national news impacting wildlife species and a reminder on yet another fall application from the NDG&F in today’s Outdoors Roundup.

ESA ROLLBACK.  Changes to the Endangered Species Act may reduce the government’s ability to protect struggling wildlife throughout the country, according to MPR.  Opponents claim it is an “effort to gut protections for endangered and threatened species” while proponents argue cost effectiveness and “more transparency” resulting from the changes.


NOT DA BOMB.  The Environmental Protection Agency has issued a decision allowing for the use of spring-ejected cyanide traps for the killing of predators such as coyotes and foxes.   The M-44 style traps are set near rotten meat or other bait, and used to kill furbearers which frequently harass and kill livestock.  Opponents question the damage done to other species, including domestic dogs, when the cyanide is released into the environment


SWAN SONG.  Today, Aug. 14, is the last day to apply for a tundra swan tag through the NDG&F Department’s application page.  The season starts on Sept. 28 and runs until Dec. 29.
