WAITING FOR WARMTH. We struggle to hit 70 through the next couple of days, with hopes of a warm-up on Sunday afternoon, though conditions will remain generally calm and pleasant. In addition to your weekend fishing forecast we’ve got views from a new hunter and a trap event for young shooters coming up in our Outdoors Roundup.

MORE LOCAVORE. QDMA details the movement of more and more people entering the hunting ranks as a way to connect with their food sources and the natural progression of development in the outdoors. Reading this young lady’s story and the challenges a new hunter faces will remind many of their own entry into the woods and fields.
BEST IN THE WEST. The annual Scheels youth trap shoot – “Best in the West” – is on! The one-day event will be held on June 27 at the Minot Gun Club. Kids in grades 6-12 can sign up for the event and registration ends June 15 at 7am.
WARMING YET? It’ll take until the turn of the month for things to start feeling like June as we top out just under 70 degrees for much of the weekend. There’s a shot at 80 for a day or two next week, so plan your adventures accordingly.
