OUTDOORS ROUNDUP:

 

CROP CUT.  The USDA breaks down the slow-going crop harvest in North Dakota hampered by excess moisture and challenging days.  Corn remains in the single digits with just four percent of fields down, and 20 percent of soybeans harvested, behind the historical average of 81.  With crops up, pheasants and deer utilize fields for extra cover, making hunts a bit more challenging.

 

ROCKIN’ IT.  The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation awarded nearly $200,000 to projects in North Dakota benefitting habitat and hunting programs in the state.  Among the efforts were youth and women shooting and hunting programs along with grassland improvements throughout the state.

 

LIFE SAVER.  The Minnesota DNR details how hunters wearing lifejackets during a waterfowl hunt gone awry likely saved their lives and prevented a tragedy.  Put those PFDs on in the fall whether fishing or hunting to prevent drowning in the shock of cold water.
