GOOD STRETCH. The next three days will sport great conditions for getting out in the field, especially bird hunting. Calmer conditions and moderate temperatures should extend most hunts and make things pleasant through Friday.
SOAKED. We’ll need a few dry days after the first month of fall showcased precipitation in amounts that were three to four times normal. The good news is the short-term forecast shows a drier trend and limited rainfall for the next week.
MEGA-MUSKIE. The Minnesota DNR has certified a new catch-and-release record muskie caught on Lake Vermilion this summer. The 57.25-inch fish with more than 25 inches of girth was caught on Aug. 6 by Corey Kitzmann of Davenport, IA.
