CALL IT AN EARLY WEEKEND!  Wow, you have to get “sick” today, but it’s more like spring fever than buck fever. With highs clipping 80, light winds and a new moon to back your play on the water, you better let the boss know you’re not coming in.  We talk tips for late season fish…

WHERE ARE WE?  The summer-like warm-up continues today as temps soar into the mid and upper 70s around the Peace Garden State on strong southwest winds.  Rising with it is the power of the new moon, making for a superb week of fishing, particularly this evening as a small cool front rolls in overnight, but…

SPITTING SATURDAY.  We’ll get a taste of cool today, with light, intermittent rain and possibly a few flakes falling in the first half of the day, before winds on the backside blow down from the northwest, keeping things chilly throughout the afternoon.  You should start to see more waterfowl migrating in the coming days, and…

OH LUCKY DAY!  For a Friday the 13th, things are looking spookily good, as you’ll have options for all forms of hunting.  Light breezes pick up throughout the day giving your dogs a good chance to get on scent, but if you’re fishing the chop will be ideal for those hungry late season walleyes with…

WATCH YOUR STEP!  Especially that first one out the door this morning – it’s going to be gusty from the other direction, as northwest winds take over and cool us off.  With your head down against the gales, you might happen upon our star for the day – the prickly pear cactus.  It’s one of…

GOLDEN DAYS.  We’re in the final throes of fall color, and with many places dipping below freezing for a few hours last night, the first frost has set in for a good portion of North Dakota. Check out the reds, oranges, and yellows while you can and take advantage of one more warm autumn day…

ON THE TAIL TRAIL.  Despite lower numbers, good hunting can still be found.  Whether it’s pre-migration for ducks, or the midst of pheasant season, you never know what you’ll find.  So get out there, get after it and give it your best on all of the great opportunities ND has to offer! We talk hunting…

WINDY WEEKEND.  The second day of pheasant season brought with it more winds and cooler temps, along with wiser birds.  All signs are pointing to lower numbers as reports from across the state are of mostly carry-over roosters from last season making up the majority of the take.  In northwestern ND, that was the case. …

DAY TWO!  Here’s hoping you found some birds out there yesterday.  Anecdotal reports are already showing that pheasants can be found throughout ND with a little legwork, and opener (despite the wind) was successful.  Today should be better in terms of wind, so knock a few more down and take advantage of all the great…

GETTING BAD.  Okay, even with the wind, it’s still pheasant opener so we know you’re headed out this morning.  Remember, quiet, calm and catch them before they catch the wind! We get totally bad in today’s Three Things, and we’re not talking about Michael Jackson. (THEM’S THE BREAKS.  The badlands near Teddy Roosevelt National Park…

WE’RE ABOUT TO BLOW!  Relatively calm conditions persist through tonight, but a huge shift in the wind is coming for tomorrow’s Pheasant Opener as forecasts now add an extra 10 mph to the maximum gusts.  Hold on to your blaze orange hats!   We go potpourri in today’s Three Things. (WAITING ON WIND. Seeds hanging from…

HUSKS IN THE WIND.  Okay, so that’s not the title of a Kansas song, but it will most likely be one for North Dakota this weekend, as Pheasant Opener is expected to be a breezy one. We toast to the breezes that blow through the treezes, and factor gusts into your hunting strategy. (CORNY.  Chaff…
