STRAIGHTEN OUT. Things take a bit of a turn for the better from previous forecasts as temperatures rise slightly and things calm down some headed into our mid-week warmup. We’ve got news on a PLOTS promotion, infrastructure for fish and wildlife and a notable shift in daylight which starts today in our Outdoors Roundup.

BUCKS FOR PLOTS. The Big Buck Book (a DEO project) announces that from today through July 3, each pre-order of the new publication, which comes out early August, will result in a $1 donation to the NDG&F’s PLOTS program. Plus all pre-orders through that time get shipped directly after publication to the hunter’s door!
NO BARRIERS. The National Wildlife Federation reports that funding for animal overpasses and fish migration culverts are part of the $300 Million allotted to wildlife in the current infrastructure bill before congress. These structures would help prevent deer-car collisions and spur migration of species such as salmon.
SHORTENING. Today marks the beginning of the decrease in daylight, as we lose our first minute to sunrise following the summer solstice. Try not to think about winter!
