DEALS! A lot of great deals are on tap for hunters and anglers today at favorite regional sporting goods retailers. Get Black Friday Flyers from Scheels, Cabela’s, L&M Fleet, Mills Fleet and Runnings and check out the great gifts for your favorite outdoors fan (or yourself)!
SMOKE! Muzzleloader deer season starts at noon today for those ND hunters lucky enough to pull a tag for their smoke stick! The primitive firearm season runs until Dec. 15 and an additional 184 licenses were issued to hunters over 2018’s tally.
SNOW! It might not be popular, but it’ll be a hit as a big low pressure system continues to solidify its track through the upper Midwest. Totals of 8 to 15 inches are likely through the weekend along the ND/SD border as precipitation starts as rain and ice tonight and converts to heavy snow by Saturday. Pick up a new shovel while you’re out shopping today, okay?
