NW CWD. Bow hunters in the Williston area are requested to help monitor the local deer herd for Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) by dropping off the heads of harvested animals this fall for sampling. CWD is caused by a prion which results in a number of neurological maladies prior to death.
Grousing About. Pheasants Forever has a new blog entry designed to get hunters set for the upcoming grouse seasons. With insight from North Dakota and surrounding states, it’s a great way to get geared up for the mid-September start to the season.
