BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota’s Game and Fish Department is urging outdoors enthusiasts to be courteous at boat ramps.

The agency says it gets a number of complaints every year about overly aggressive behavior at boat ramps. Officials say boaters should be patient and should plan ahead when heading to a lake or river this summer.

Tips for boaters include preparing for launch and finishing the securing of a boat after leaving the water in the parking area, rather than in the ramp area.

Game and Fish urges boaters to wait their turn in line when ready to launch.
