Daily Edge for Sat. 10/12 – Final Stretch

SOME SYSTEM.  The combination front with trailing low packed a wallop and the back side of the system will continue to drop snow over North Dakota today.  After tomorrow’s dig-out, there may be opportunities to survey the landscape and perhaps even hunt in light evening winds.  We cover that and more in our Outdoors Roundup.

OUTDOORS ROUNDUP:

 

RELIEF IN SIGHT.  The long-range forecast is calling for a melt – with temperatures in the 40s and 50s by the end of the week, with a shot at 60 by Friday.  Is this the storm that broke the weather pattern – or just the first in a series of many for this season?  We’ll find out!

 

WMA MASTERY.  There are 226 wildlife management areas throughout the state, providing almost a quarter-million acres of land to hunt.  This week’s NDG&F Weekly Webcast covers the processes of management and use of those lands to improve hunting.

 

BY THE BUNCH.  Watch for wildlife – especially game like pheasants and deer – to be bunched up in heavy habitat following the storm.  As they emerge and things improve, they’ll spread out, but the coming days should produce herd and flock sightings.
