OUTDOORS ROUNDUP:

HIGH HOLIDAY.  It’ll be an awesome holiday weekend as the power of the new moonv and stabilizing weather and light winds take hold starting tomorrow (possibly 90 by Monday?).  Watch for increased motion in area deer and fish as things set up for a memorable Labor Day weekend.

HOP TO IT.  While common in North Dakota, the northern leopard frog is rare in Washington state, so rare it is listed as Endangered there.  The FWS details a reintroduction program with a highly-engaging photo spread and interactive story at its website.

HOT TOPIC.  In a recent release, QDMA details their partnership with the Sportsmen for the Boundary Waters, in an effort to protect the quality of the flowages and lands at risk to proposed sulfide-copper ore mining in the area of northern Minnesota.
