Daily Edge for Tue. 10/15 – Ducks & Bucks

RUSHING & RUTTING.  Waterfowl are on the move from the north and bucks are getting fired up with antlers clacking and noses to the wind.  With conditions improving, it’s a great time to be in the outdoors, which is why we’ve got that information from around the to get you out there this week!

MIGRATION MATTERS.  Ducks Unlimited has a piece on the impact our early snow has had on the migration of waterfowl in southern Canada.  The organization’s migration map shows an influx of migratory birds into northern ND following the event.

DEER FORECAST.  Outdoor Life’s annual deer hunting forecast is up with trends and tips for each state, including North Dakota. Check out the information to help get you fired up for firearms season and as we get into the pre-rut phase of things.  We saw quite a bit of movement the night of the full moon – does and bucks out in force after the storm.

MAJOR MELT.  With hardly a flake in the forecast and some late-week highs in the 60s, it’s likely much of last week’s storm deposits will be melting away.  Take advantage of it and make next weekend your pheasant opener, if you missed out!
