We’ve got updates on boating regulations for youth age 12-15, some great processing tips from QDMA and a look at what’s to come in the weather, all as part of today’s Outdoors Roundup.

YOUNG CAPTAINS. For those youth age 12-15 wishing to operate a motorboat in ND waters with a motor larger than 10 HP, the NDG&F reminds them that the Boat North Dakota course must be completed before they can do so. The course is offered online through partner companies to help young boaters better understand safety and operations.
DEER PROCESSING ESSENTIALS. QDMA has a blog post that won’t break the bank and help you break down your deer each fall. The organization highlights the simple DIY processing tools that make the most of your deer meat and make it easy.
WEEKEND WATCH. Temperatures in the mid-70s to mid-80s will keep things comfortable this weekend and increasing southeast winds rule the three day stretch. There’s no threat of rain until late Sunday into Monday, so enjoy your time outdoors without the slicker!
