Paul Nelson column for Sept. 18: Fishing still good while hunting seasons open
The first half of September has had some of the nicest weather of the summer in the Bemidji area. Temperatures have been unseasonably warm, the weather has been stable and the light winds have been mostly from the south.
Saturday is the opener for the archery deer season in Minnesota. The season also opens for small game, which includes ruffed grouse, which are very popular in the Bemidji area. Most drumming counts predict increased numbers of grouse in most areas this fall.
