DRIVE WITH ALOHA. With the late harvest, distressed conditions of roads, and the upcoming firearms deer season, the NDG&F Dept. reminds hunters to drive with care and allow a wide berth to farm machinery engaging in season-ending field work.
WEEKEND WX. Friday will be the windiest of our three weekend days, with gusts up to 35 mph. After that, it’s smooth sailing for time on stand or in the field as light westerlies settle in through Sunday. Temps in the mid-to-upper-30s will make it a great one for scouting and bow hunting.
CLEANING CLEANUP. Remember to properly dispose of carcasses for all animals harvested, don’t simply leave them lying on the road or dump them on public lands. Not only is it illegal, it paints hunters in a bad light. From pheasants to deer, it’s important that what’s left behind after the harvest is put where it belongs.
