Daily Edge for Sun. 4/19 – Pretty Nice

SUPERB SUNDAY.  Winds build throughout the day, but it won’t be as gusty as yesterday as temperatures climb into the mid-50s to finish out your weekend.  We’ve got updates on an upcoming PLOTS survey, movements of a small upland bird and what the week ahead has in store in today’s Outdoors Roundup.

OUTDOORS ROUNDUP:

SURVEY SAYS.  The NDG&F has partnered with a third-party group to survey the use of PLOTS lands on North Dakota’s landscape.  Hunters will randomly be contacted as part of the study on hunting, land management and energy development.

COLOR MAP.  The RGS & AWS share this colorful map tracking the migration of woodcock along the east coast from fall into spring.  It’s a neat way to get a picture of how the little woodland bird makes its seasonal moves.

LOOKING GREAT.  Even with oscillating winds, the next seven days look great as spring starts in earnest.  By midweek temperatures stabilize at or above 60 as we get into the second month of the season and most lakes and rivers allow for openwater angling across the state.
