HARD CORE HUNTING. We’ve got the updates to get you set for fall from the state’s premier deer hunting publication to a last call for pronghorn applications, to a law that guarantees funding for the future. That’s all part of our Outdoors Roundup today.

BOOK IT! The Big Buck Book (a DEO Publication) is hot off the presses and shipping out to hunters all around ND this week! Order your copy now and get in on free shipping until the end of the week, and get psyched for an awesome season of hunting!
LAST CALL. The NDG&F Dept. reminds hunters that today is the last day to apply for a pronghorn tag in the 2020 lottery. 1,790 licenses are available and three units have been re-opened to hunting as numbers have increased since population lows in 2010-12.
THAT’S LAW. The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation highlights the signing of the Great American Outdoors Act into law, guaranteeing that all 900 million dollars raised from royalties on offshore drilling will go to improving outdoors resources around the country, and no portion will be diverted again.
