GUSTY. A windy Monday sets up across the region behind Sunday’s rain. With that new precipitation comes increased concerns over water levels in North Dakota. We take a look at those along with the shifting influence of the moon in this stage of the fall and the end of the CTL season in our Outdoors Roundup.

WATER, WATER EVERYWHERE. While things remain high on the Missouri River, it’s even worse to the east as high water levels are spurring the installation of flood walls along the Sheyenne River, and the Red is reaching minor, moderate and major flood levels from Fargo to Grand Forks to Drayton
QUARTERED. The last quarter moon will start the homeward stretch to firearms deer season, though wind will make any time on stand a bit gusty today. Watch for rutting activity to start kicking up in the next couple of weeks, and look for those scrapes and rubs to provide sign to where big bucks are moving.
FINAL WEEK. The North Dakota High School Clay Target League (ND CTL) enters its final week of fall competition. While shooting has been challenged by wind, rain and significant snow across much of the state, hundreds of participants are driving the increasing popularity of the sport. Schools looking to start teams this spring should get going on the process now.
