Daily Edge for Sat. 4/11 – Did You Feel That?

STRONG SHIFT.  A chilly weekend sets in on the region as winds kick up from the north overnight and don’t really let up for the next four days or so. To get you through this stretch we’ve got a big game update from the NDG&F Dept., a cool fundraiser from PF and  in our Outdoors Roundup.

DAY RATING:

OUTDOORS ROUNDUP:

BIG THREE ANNOUNCED.  The results of the first two of ND’s “Big Three” – Elk, Moose and Bighorn Sheep – once-in-a-lifetime tag lotteries have been announced.  Individuals can check to see if they drew an elk or moose tag at the NDG&F Dept. website.  Bighorn sheep results will be released in September after surveys and tag numbers are set this summer.

FOR HABITAT.  Pheasants Forever’s Bird Dogs for Habitat Fundraiser is underway.  For every dollar donated, partners will match the contribution 3-to-1 helping the organization secure money to leverage grants and other funding for habitat work across the country.

BIG CHILL.  It looks like the next possible “warm” day will come at the end of next week as temperatures muddle in the mid-30s for highs through next Thursday.  Calmer conditions should settle in by then as well.  Spring is a roller coaster afterall!
