Brainerd, Minn. Over $150,000 in cash and prizes will be up for grabs when more than 14,000 anglers from more than 10 states and Canada take part in the Jan. 20, 2001, Brainerd Jaycees Ice Fishing Extravaganza on Gull Lake.

This year, at the 11th annual event, the Jaycees hope to raise over $200,000 for charity, with about 70 percent going to the Confidence Learning Center, a year-round outdoors-educational facility serving people with developmental disabilities. About 20,000 holes will be drilled in Hole in the Day Bay as anglers compete for cash and prizes, such

Braham, Minn. An 8-year-old Braham boy died Sunday when the snowmobile he was driving collided with a train, authorities said.

Travis Dane Kadle was trailing his father, who was driving another snowmobile, when he crossed the path of the train around 9:45 a.m., according to the Kanabec County Sheriff’s Department.

Madison Ten years ago, Wisconsin’s game managers and research experts warned gun deer hunters that annual harvests as high as 300,000 could not continue. Boy, were they off. State hunters shot a record 437,737 whitetails during the nine-day firearm hunt that ended Sunday. The total included 172,413 bucks and 265,324 does and fawns, both all-time

Pierre, S.D. State Game, Fish and Parks officials in South Dakota say there is an apparent misconception regarding the 2001 fishing license requirements for Lake Oahe.

Anglers who possess a Lake Oahe fishing license can only fish on Lake Oahe. Anglers who have any other South Dakota fishing license can fish Lake Oahe, or any other public water in South Dakota. Both licenses are not required. Resident licenses for Oahe will cost $7. Nonresident licenses will cost $20. These licenses will
