GETTING GUSTY. Winds will be strong out of the southeast all day, putting some bump in your ride to and from the boat ramp, unless you stay on the south side of the lake! While you duck the wind we’ve got updates from area wildlife agencies to keep you in the know as we say goodbye to May!

RABBIT ROUNDUP. The North Dakota Game & Fish Department is asking for the help of hunters and others in preventing the spread of RHDV, a hemorrhagic virus that is fatal to cottontails and jackrabbits. People should avoid transporting rabbits and equipment used to feed and care for them into the state to help protect our local populations.
BASS, BLUEGILLS, BEAVER. The Minnesota DNR has updates on public input regarding panfish regulations, simple tips to get people fishing for bucketmouths and new rules in place for beaver management in the land of 10,000 lakes.
OPENING UP. The Montana Fish Wildlife & Parks Dept. has extended the enrollment period for its landowner access program to June 19. Through it the agency is hoping to gain more public access to “landlocked” parcels of public land in the state and encourage more hunting. Landowners benefit too with stipends of up to $15,000 for enrolling their land.
