HUNTING

A Fargo, North Dakota, company, exhibiting recently at the Northern Ag Expo trade show in Fargo, has created a QR Code solution, selling landowners signs that hunters can use to determine if land is open for hunting and allows landowners to schedule use without phone calls.
The electronic posting option was made available by a North Dakota law that was signed by North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum on April 28, 2021, and went into effect on Aug. 1, 2021.
"Landowners aren't trying to stop hunting. Most of us have a healthy appreciation for the population control hunters provide. We simply want to know who is on our land, just as anyone in town would want to know if someone was in their yard or garage and what they're doing there."
Bryan and Bryce Sombke, who promote a 500-acre natural bird hunting and gun dog enterprise near Conde, South Dakota, and help on the family’s 2,000-acre farm, were among those hit in an unusual Aug. 28, 2021, hail storm. The storm brought high winds and softball-sized hail, and killed deer and decimated the bird population, as well as flattening 7- to 8-foot-tall corn and Conservation Reserve Program lands.
