TOTALLY TUESDAY. While it remains cool this final Tuesday of October, we’re doing a double take on important CWD info, seeing that a little cold by itself isn’t so bad, and figuring out what to expect for deer opener in today’s Outdoors Roundup.

ON WATCH. The NDG&F Dept. will continue its growing surveillance of Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) in the state during the upcoming firearms deer season. Continued occurrences are expected to be detected as part of the agency’s expanding sampling program.
COMING DOWN, SLOWY. Harvest continued at a below-normal pace as about half of last week facilitated the cutting of agricultural fields. Ahead of deer opener in two weeks, much of the state’s corn crop remains unharvestedv, providing cover and forage for the foreseeable future.
COULD BE WORSE? Sometimes when you’re in the cold bubble, it’s best not to complain as the jet stream bringing chilly conditions to North and South Dakota will bring a swath of heavy snow through Nebraska, Kansas and Iowa this week.
