Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - This weekend will be big for hunting, with youth pheasant season opening and duck and goose season continuing.

But those out hunting might want to take extra care as dry conditions worsen.

Even the potential snow might not produce enough moisture to alleviate the problem.

Anything from discarding a cigarette to parking a car on the grass could ignite a wildfire.

Doug Leier, Game & Fish Biologist: “Minutes can be the difference, seconds can be the difference, and sometimes these unintended consequences can turn out to be disastrous. So, we just want folks to do their part in being vigilant, as well.”

Regular pheasant hunting begins October 13th.
