We take a look at the rule making process at NDG&F, a slew of summer events for NDBA and how much help the state received from recent rains; all as part of our Outdoors Roundup.

THAT RULES. A number of administrative rules are up for discussion and implementation as part of a public hearing with the North Dakota Game & Fish Department on June 18. More information can be found on the agency’s website pertaining to changes in licensing, boating equipment and other pertinent items to outdoor recreation. Public comment is welcomed.
FULL DRAW. As the world comes back online, the North Dakota Bowhunters Association events kick back into high gear across the state, with many events running from mid-June into August. Check out all of the options around the Roughrider State for you to get your archery competition fix and get set for fall!
DUST DOWN. This past weekend’s rain and storms brought some needed moisture to the western portion of North Dakota, but it wasn’t much as growing drought conditions persist on the far side of the Missouri River basin. We’ll see where we sit with the new Drought Monitor tomorrow!
