Daily Edge for Mon. 9/16 – Warm Start

MONDAY MOVES.  Good news around the region as most upland numbers are up – including sharptailed grouse, which we link to as part of our Outdoors Roundup along with all the great autumn adventure on public lands.  It’ll be a tale of two halves as the heat continues today and tomorrow, but things cool toward an even chillier weekend coming up.
