AIR DRIED. Sunday will bring calm, sunny and warmer conditions to the area after a monster system moved through early yesterday morning dropping several inches of rain and bringing flash flooding to some parts of ND. We look at what’s ahead for the week, some great past hunting and a picture-perfect opportunity in our Outdoors Roundup.

PERFECT PAIR. After Friday & Saturday’s storm system that drenched the area, today and Monday will bring calm conditions and sunny skies with comfortable temperatures for the field. Take advantage before the weather whiplash hits us again going into Wednesday and a cool slide into next weekend.
GOOD OL’ DAYS? Our parents say for pheasant hunting it was the pre-drought 80s. This generation talks of the height of CRP from 2004-2009. And stories of the late 40s, post-WWII and their skies black with birds are tough to beat. The argument that now is the good ol’ days is a tough one to defend, especially with CRP in a trough, but The Meat Eater attempts to make the case.
