Daily Edge for Sun. 10/6 – Still Windy

LONG WINDED.  Gusts continue today but we’re looking forward to a great first half of next week, along with potential for snow ahead of the pheasant opener.  We talk weekly weather, a well-earned honor and concealment tips inside the blind in today’s Outdoors Roundup.

DUGGAN HONORED.  Long-time PF executive Joe Duggan and his family were honored with a WMA/WPA complex in southwest Minnesota.  The site consists of nearly 300 acres of prairie and wetlands in Jackson county and will connect two adjacent public land parcels for contiguous hunting.

THE WEEK AHEAD.  While early models kicked out some scary, double-digit snow forecasts for Thursday and Friday, recent runs have backed down on the white stuff.  Expect two inches and “complications” right now.  Before that – it’s beautiful with highs in the 70s – enjoy it!

BLACKOUT.  Remember when hunting from a blind to utilize black or other super-dark clothing if the inside of the fabric is also black.  Camo will stand out against the black interior if a window is open.  Utilize a mesh window covering to further conceal your efforts and any slight movements.
