REFUGE WEEK. The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service is celebrating National Wildlife Refuge Week Oct. 13-19. With 567 NWRs around the nation and 33 in North Dakota, these areas are vital to preserving wildlife populations throughout the country and managing clean water, air and land.
ROAD KILL. The NDG&F Dept. reminds the public that only those with a permit can possess deer, including those found on the side of the road. Contact a warden or a law enforcement officer to obtain one.
BE PREPARED. With the snowstorm swirling, now is the time to double-check your stash of travel gear for those hunting trips. Have a roadside emergency kit and a winter survival kit for your travels, but also have a hunting emergency kit ready in the form of set of clothes stashed for emergency situations especially warm socks and thermal underwear which can be easily donned if the body gets wet or cold.
