When it comes to deer season questions and answers the best advice I can give is if you don’t know, ask. While it may be convenient to ask your fiiend,’ co—worker or hunting partner, the best person to ask a specific ques- tion on rules and regulations is the game warden in the area you are hunt- ing. Understanding the strains of Game and Fish enforcement during this busy time of year means asking in advance will help aid in getting a ques- tion answered quickly. Check out the Game and Fish website, gfndgov, for a full list of questions and answers. What licenses do I need for deer gun season? A general game and habitat or combination license, and the deer license. Gratis license holders need only the gratis license. I have a concurrent season license. When can I use it? The license can be used during the archery season with a bow; the deer gun season with a bow, rifle or muzzleloader; or the muzzleloader season with a muzzleloader. You are restricted to the type of antlerless deer print- ed on the license and must stay in the unit to which the license is assigned. Can hunters ages 14 or 15 (in 2021) with a youth season license who did not harvest a deer during the youth season, hunt the regular deer gun season with this license? Yes, but you are subject to the restrictions listed on the license. I was unsuccessful in filling my mule deer buck license in a restricted unit during the youth season. Can I hunt the remainder of the state dur- ing the regular gun season? No. You are restricted to the same unit as during the youth season. I shot a deer, but it is rotten. What can I do? You must take possession of the animal by tagging it. A license only al— lows you the opportunity to hunt. It is not a guarantee to harvest a'deer, or to the quality of the animal. What should I doif I find a wounded deer? . H Contactagarne wadenDo not shoot the deer unless you want to tag it or are instr‘dbted by the warden to do so. Is camouflage blaze orange acceptable for the deer gun season? No. You must wear both a hat and outer garment above the waistline totaling at least 400 square inches of solid daylight fluorescent orange. I hunt with a bow. When do I have to wear orange? Only during the regular deer gun season. Can I hunt road rights-of—way? Do not hunt on road rights-of-way unless you are certain they are open to public. use. Most road rights-of—way are easements under control of the adjacent landowner and are closed to hunting when the adjacent land is post- ed closed to hunting. . Can I hunt on a section line if it is posted on both sides? No. If the land is posted on both sides, the section line is closed to hunt- ing, but is still open for travel. Hunters with firrther questions are encouraged to Visit the Game and Fish Department’s website, gfnd.gov., or call 701—328-6300, from 8 am. to 5 pm. weekdays.

All party officers will need to be re-elected. This meeting is open to the public and interested voters in this newly formed district are invited to attend and participate in the democratic process of re- organizing a new Dem-NFL District 19 party. Every ten years, given population data from the census, the ND legis- lature is tasked with redrawing its legislative districts. New boundaries for each district must be redrawn to account for population changes due to cities grong and rural populations declining. There are 47 legislative districts in ND meeting the requirement that each district hold approximately 15,000 ' residents. This summer the ND Legislative Committee ruled a change to go into effect during the special session the week of Nov. 8th. The newly defined , map will have District 19 absorb most of District 10. District 10 will re- ', establish in central Fargo. The three legislators now serving District 19 will no longer reside with- in the new District boundaries and an election is required in 2022 to elect 3 new legislators living within the confines of the new District 19 requiring ~ both Republican and Democrat parties to re-organize and identify candi— ' dates to run for these newly established legislative posts.

God Bless the people that have served our country. God bless the USA. . Submitted by Marquita Novak, Sec. of Park River Legion Aux-I By David Monson Rep. District 10 BISMARCK, N.D. — The ND Legislature has been notified that we will go into a special legislative session beginning on November 8, 2021. There was a question as to whether we would call ourselves into session (reconvene the regular session from last spring) or if the gov- ernor would call us into session. The governor announced on October 29 that he was calling the special session. If we would have called ourselves . into a reconvened session, we would have had only four days to complete all our work The ND Constitution limits the legislature to meet no more than eighty days every two years, and we used seventy-six of our days in the session that end- ed in April of 2021. Since the governor called the session now, we are not limited on the length of the special session. This could be a double-edged sword. By not having a limit on the number of days in the ses- sion we have more time to deal with more bills. Our House and Senate leaders have indicated they would like to limit the number and scope of the bills introduced to a The only' two topics we really need to address are the re- districting plan and the Federal money the state has received called ARPA funds, an acronym for American Rescue Plan Act. The redistricting committee finished putting forth a plan on September 29. We don’t expect any major changes to the plan during the spe- North Kitchen or counter help needed. Flexible hours!

That have fought and died to keep this country free. Legison ‘ , cial session, although some minor changes could be brought forth in amendments. The House and Senate Appropriations Com- mittees finished putting the ARPA spending plan together on October 28 afier eight days of re- viewing proposals and negotiating with each oth- er. It was a lot of tense negotiating, but the plan is being forwarded to the Legislative Manage- ment Committee and then on the special session. This is a case where we could see some amend— ’ ments during the special session. The whole leg- islature will vote on the spending in the end. We had about $9.2 Billion in requests on how to spend it, and only $1.2 Billion available. We chose to fund about $383.5 Million worth of proj- ects that we had appropriated money to during the general session that ended in April, 2021. Af- ter we adjoumed, we were told that the funding for those projects didn’t meet the criteria to have the Corona virus funding pay for them $317 Mil- lion of that goes to the Department of Trans— portation with $30 Million going to local roads and bridges. That means the remaining ARPA funds was in the range of about $900 Million. Some of the major spending proposed for the roughly $900 Million are: $75 Million going for water projects; $100,000 for each of the_13 state parks and a total of $10 Million for the State Parks and Recreation Department; $5 Million to local parks with none getting more than $1.5 Mil- lion requiring a 1 to 1 match; State Colleges and Universities will get $1 13 Million for repairs, new Coop buildings, or demolition; $150 Million to help > build a natural gas pipeline to eastern ND; $25 ‘ Million for nursing homes; $29 Million for Hu- man Services; $60 Million for the Department of Commerce; $5 Million for airports; and nu- merous other amounts. We didn’t spend all the , ARPA funds in our proposed bill. By our last tal- , 1y we still have somewhere over $300 Million that we can consider in the special session or keep ‘ until the 2023 regular session. There will be some other bills introduced we know. There are upwards of half a dozen vac- cine mandate bills, with one almost sure to pass. Probably a critical race theory bill will pass as well. Beyond that, we will have to wait and see. ' The governor would like to see us spend more of the ARPA funds and even some of the tum- back money that various departments didn’t need to spend with all the Corona virus money that came to us in 2021. That is over $400 Million, but even though our oil revenue is ahead of schedule after two months of the new biennium, a lot can go wrong with our economy between now and June 30, 2023. We thought it would be a little careless to spend that money already. If you have ideas and concerns, you can reach me by email at: dmonson@nd. gov. I try to re- spond to my constituents, but with the hectic pace I’ve been experiencing, it may take a few days.
