PRONGHORN PERCENTS. The NDG&F Dept. has released harvest statistics from last year’s pronghorn season. 74 percent of hunters harvested an animal out of 1,324 licenses issued in the state.
FULL FUNDING. Backcountry Hunters & Anglers detail the bi-partisan effort in the Senate to fully fund the Land and Water Conservation Fund. In addition $1.3 Billion in funding would be allotted to the National Park Service for overdue maintenance projects.
SOMETHING BIG. Models still aren’t matching up and the event keeps getting pushed back, but something big is brewing in terms of moisture in the approaching weekend. We’ll keep a watch on where the bullseye lands, but don’t put those shovels away just yet and adjust your outdoor plans accordingly.
