HEADING OUT. The NDG&F warns traveling boaters to familiarize themselves with ANS and watercraft transport requirements in adjacent states and provinces to help prevent the spread of those troublesome species out of and into the state. In addition to clean, drain and dry tactics, the agency posts links to those requirements in surrounding jurisdictions.
TALK ABOUT TIMING. Pheasants Forever addresses the importance of roadside habitat, and waiting until August 1 before mowing and haying ditches in recruiting chicks for fall populations of birds. In its blog, the organization addresses the timing of the young pheasant’s life cycle and its ability to escape mowers as it grows
