WE’VE GOT IT ALL! With a warm-up and some drying out on tap for the weekend and waterfowl on the horizon (or maybe even today for you youngsters) along with another trap season, things are shaping up just in time for a great full moon weekend and the approaching week. We cover those items and more in today’s Outdoors Roundup.

WATERFOWL PREVIEW. The NDG&F has a look ahead to the upcoming waterfowl season in Outdoors Online, its weekly web short. Consistent water levels and improved conditions have helped keep populations strong in North Dakota this year.
SLOW BURN. A warming trend is coming over the next few days, as temps max out in the mid-80s by Tuesday. Relatively calm conditions persist into next week, setting up an enjoyable stretch for hunting and fall fishing.
