WINDY WEEK.  Cooler temps and strong winds prevail throughout much of the week, as things take on a more fall-like feel.  Gusts will peak tomorrow with speeds reaching near 45 mph, while conditions for Labor Day weekend fishing and bow opener look to be calmer.

SWAN SONG.  185 licenses remain for the fall swan hunt in North Dakota which runs from Sept. 28 to Dec. 29.  Hunters without a license can apply for the tags on a first-come first-served basis at the NDG&F license application page.

CHOKE CHECK.  Make sure as you’re getting guns ready for the season to clean in and around the threads for the various chokes you’ll use in the field.  Clean out grit, grime and other particles with a brush and some solvent for easy insert and removal from hunt-to-hunt this fall.
