PRONGHORN PREP. The North Dakota Game & Fish Department has announced the 2020 season for pronghorn hunting, with tags and available units up over 2019. This will be the first season since 1993 that unit 13A, located in the northwest corner of the state, will be open to hunters for the fall season.
SLAMMIN’ SALMON. For information on salmon action heating up in the late stretch of summer, visit the ND Salmon Reports Page on Facebook. Updates by members along with tips, tactics and buy/sell options will get you set for some silver success on Lake Sakakawea.
COAL CLAIMS. According to the National Wildlife Federation, a recently-introduced bill would utilize federal dollars to reclaim abandoned coal mines and help restore wildlife habitat across coal country. Introduced as the Marshall Plan for Coal Country Act of 2020, the bill aims to create thousands of jobs and ultimately thousands of acres of habitat for fish and wildlife.
