WHITE WALKERS.  We’ve got snow!  About two inches fell in the Bismarck area between yesterday and last night, with more on the way.  You may have to dig out in some areas of the state, but the white stuff will make tracking in the field easier.  Whether you’re gearing up for deer season, or heading…

STICK AROUND!  Today’s weather will bring with it the first accumulations of snow which may actually stick around for a few days.  By mid-day, things may get dicey, so whatever early hunts you have planned, make sure you drive with care on the way back in.  We talk deer, ducks and more in Today’s Three…

THE CAT’S MEOW.  Take today by the horns, or antlers as it were, and get out on your bow stand.  Cold temps and calm winds will have bucks on the move, particularly right before the big change coming in the weather on Friday.  Watch for them moving between deep cover along their rut paths, where…

FROST ON THE PUMPKIN. Cool, calm conditions overnight will bring a layer of frost on the ground, but that should also trigger animal movement throughout the morning for deer hunters and others taking to the field on this Halloween day.    We get seasonal with one of our favorite colors, tell ghost stories for Halloween, and…

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…
