The key to successful deer hunting is preparation, and the most successful hunters almost always look at the pastime as a year-round pursuit that goes far beyond the hunt. With that in mind, the publishers of Deer & Deer Hunting magazine have launched a series of “Deer & Deer Hunting Education” online courses.
BISMARCK, N.D. – The dozen board members who will recommend which projects deserve grants from North Dakota’s new Outdoor Heritage Fund have their work cut out for them after the fund, which is limited to $30 million every two years, received 76 applications totaling nearly $35 million for the first of five grant rounds.
Wade Moser, chairman of the fund’s advisory board, said he was surprised at the number of grant requests turned in by Monday’s deadline. Board members will meet Jan. 13 and 14 to hear presentations from the applicants, score their projects and make funding recommendations to the state’s Industrial Commission, which has final approval.
“It’s going to be a challenge, but we’ll take it through the process,” Moser said.
At the same time that N.D. deer license numbers first inched higher than 140,000, a new program called Sportsmen Against Hunger came on the scene, working with local wildlife clubs and deer processors to develop a way for hunters to donate venison to community food pantries.
November is often a pretty good month for gulls, and so it has been this year. Dave Lambeth spotted an Iceland gull last week. This is a real rarity here. The sighting was the first record for Grand Forks County.
It’s a safe assumption that few hunters ever leave home thinking, “I just might end up in a hunting accident today.” That’s how it should be with hunting, as well. “It can’t happen to me,” is not the best attitude to bring to the field.
North Dakota’s 16½-day deer gun season opens at noon Friday and ends Nov. 24. The Game and Fish Department this year offered 59,500 tags, a decline of 5,800 from last year and the lowest since 1983. By comparison, Game and Fish offered a record 145,250 deer gun licenses in 2004
When Tim Bernhardt spent a couple of years living in Colorado, he’d schedule his time off to return to Grand Forks for North Dakota’s deer season rather than Christmas. This year, though, Bernhardt, of Grand Forks, didn’t draw a deer tag.
