ONE WARM ONE. Today will be nice, particularly in the morning, as temperatures reach their peak following an overnight warm-up. Winds will be calm until mid-day when a cold front sweeps in and brings tomorrow’s chill. We cover that, highlight the successes of NAWCA and look at a super veterans’ hunting program in our Outdoors Roundup.

BIG BUCKS FOR DUCKS. The NDG&F Dept. highlights the successes of the North American Waterfowl Conservation Act (NAWCA) in buoying numbers of waterfowl on the continent. North Dakota, being a key nesting state for ducks, has benefitted from NAWCA grants and partner group funding.
VETS OUTDOORS. The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service covers the success of The Fallen Outdoors, a hunting program for military veterans returning to the civilian world and adjusting to life changes following combat injury.
