FALLING FAST. Things are taking on a fall feel after Sunday and Monday’s sun and mild temperatures. Today moves Tuesday’s transition along toward a chilly weekend. We’ve got that outlook, some updates on waterfowl hunting and find ourselves in the middle of two halves in today’s Outdoors Roundup.

FUN TRAILER. The NDG&F reminds those families with young hunters of the availability of the agency’s youth waterfowl hunting trailer during the fall season. Loaded with all the gear and decoys needed for a successful hunt, the trailer can be reserved by contacting the Ducks Unlimited office in Bismarck at 701-355-3500.
IN THE TIMING. Duck hunters will once again rejoice with a waterfowl-like weekend as rain and cool temps descend on the region. Cool and wet appears to be the name of the game for both Saturday and Sunday.
LAST HALF FULL. Today will be the last day where we have more light than darkness until the end of March or so. While it happens every year shortly after the equinox (which is basically the meaning of the word “equinox” – “equal night”), it always spurs a bit of melancholy at the DEO offices.
