OUTDOORS ROUNDUP:

ELK ED.  The NDG&F Dept. and the University of Montana studied 90 collared elk to inspect the impact of herd reductions in 2010 after a number of animals were translocated elsewhere.  The GPS study tracked their movements, and identified better ways to track the animals and develop plans for future hunting opportunities.

TOP TEN.  Kip Adams of QDMA shares some pre-season ideas on how to get the most out of your fall deer hunting season.  From processing your own meat, and taking another hunter afield, to passing on a deer and pursuing other species, these tips will make your fall feel fuller.

SCATTERED.  The NOAA rainfall report showed the southwestern part of the state making up for lost time this spring with above-average rainfall for July.  Meanwhile, the south central stretch missed out, adding to growing drought concerns in the region.
