In a region where camouflage is more prevalent than cashmere and orange is just as likely a jacket color as black, to some, this weekend is treated like a holiday.
Deer gun season opens today. For many residents, that’s reason to celebrate.
Two hunting seasons are getting under way in North Dakota.
A special deer-gun season for antlerless deer in the northeastern part of the state starts at noon Friday. The purpose is to reduce the deer population and help guard against the spread of bovine tuberculosis from northwest Minnesota. The season closes Oct. 1.
North Dakota’s dove season opens statewide Sept. 1, and hunters are reminded to register with the Harvest Information Program prior to hunting.
The daily limit is 15 and possession limit is 30. Shooting hours are 30 minutes before sunrise to sunset. The season is open through Oct. 30.
Get ready to roll up your sleeve three times for flu shots this fall.
That’s right, three times. This year’s flu season is shaping up to be a very different one. Most people will need one shot for the regular seasonal flu and probably two others to protect against the new swine flu.
Experts suggest you get that first shot as early as this month — if you can find it.

There are several hurdles before the league can expand its regular season from 16 to 17 or 18 games. Among them is reaching a new collective bargaining agreement with the players’ union.
While the mountain lion season in Zone 1 closed Feb. 23 after the zone’s predetermined quota of eight cats had been filled, the majority of the state remained open. But that will change when Zone 2 closes March 31.
State wildlife officials have finished planning for North Dakota’s special big game seasons.
The state Game and Fish Department said 561 elk licenses are available this fall, the same as last year. A total of 148 moose licenses are available, up six.
New Hampshire is gearing up for the February-March maple-sugaring season.
It takes about 40 gallons of sap to make a gallon of syrup, and New Hampshire produces nearly 90,000 gallons of maple syrup each year.
Many sugar houses offer sugaring demonstrations, tastings, sleigh rides or hayrides, petting farms, and opportunities for kids to gather sap and sample just-cooked syrup on snow.
