It truly is amazing just how quickly some nesting species get to their business then start heading back south. It's only mid-July and thoughts of school starting again are still a long way off. H... Posted on 7/13/09 at 11:21 AM
The hillsides in and around Duluth are yellow, with bursts of orange and red, interspersed with the dark green of the pine trees and the duller green that lingers in the leaves of some deciduous trees.
Ah, but it is a fine time of year to be out-of-doors, walking through tall, golden grass with shotgun in hand.
In the morning one is likely to see frost on the grass, and by mid-day the temperature will be in the high 50s or low 60s — not too warm for a long walk. Just keep an eye on the dogs to make sure they don’t overheat. If all goes well, before long you will hear the explosive flush of sharp-tailed grouse and their unique “cuk-cuk-cuk” of alarm as they fly away.
It’s not autumn yet, but it’s getting closer. You can feel it in the air. Now is a good time to think about some things you can do to take advantage of the great fall fishing opportunities that exist across the Midwest.

The North Dakota Game and Fish Department says more than 2,600 licenses remain in 15 units after the fall wild turkey license lottery.
Remaining licenses will be issued on a first-come, first-served basis. Hunters are allowed a maximum of 15 licenses for the fall season.
Most state parks with year-round staffing offer full camping services, including electrical hookups, campground water, hot showers and camping cabins through the end of September. Selected parks provide electrical hookups throughout the year. Most state park campgrounds will discontinue campsite water service by the end of September and at some, comfort stations and waste stations will be closed. In the event of freeze warnings, water lines may be shutoff earlier.
You may not know it by looking out the window, but signs of summer’s departure are already starting. You may not even realize that fact by stepping outdoors. It’s still hot outside, the breezes are warm, and dew covers the grass in the morning. However, we can’t avoid the fact that another summer is slipping away. As summer makes its exit, the fish start to detect the changes in their surroundings. If we want to continue to catch fish, we need to make some changes also.
