SATURDAY STOMP. Don’t let the winds blow you down today, get out there and stomp away! Look for pheasants along cover and find ways to work with the wind on the weekend you’re given. We’ve got tips for that and more in today’s Outdoors Roundup.

MARCH ON. On windy days, pheasants can be found in good cover like brushlines, especially those that are on the upwind side of a field, or the windward end of a long belt. Approach these places carefully, and don’t let dogs get too far ahead on scent that may be wafting with the breeze.
KEEP AN EYE. In the fall when docks are being pulled out is when many property owners and anglers notice zebra mussels and other aquatic nuisance species. The NDG&F Dept. has more on what to expect in this week’s North Dakota Outdoors webcast.
LEND AN EAR! Today on the Our Outdoors program on KOVC and its affiliates, we talk with Jon Zinnel of Federal Premium Ammunition about the quickly-developing market of steel shells for the upland hunter and the expanding opportunities for hunting on FWS lands.
