Outdoor News, Inc. Partners with Minnesota DNR on Youth Offer
(Plymouth, Minn.) — Outdoor News, Inc., publisher of locally written fishing and hunting outdoor newspapers in seven Great Lake states, has partnered with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources to provide a free subscription for 11- to 17-year-olds who have completed a firearms safety hunter education class in 2015.
This is the second consecutive year the partnership has promoted the offer for youth to receive a three-month junior subscription to Minnesota Outdoor News upon successful completion of the DNR-sponsored classes. “Minnesota Outdoor News is a valuable resource that provides tips, features, and news to these young sporting enthusiasts. This partnership allows us to highlight the culture of hunting and fishing in Minnesota, while honoring an important milestone in their lives,” said Rob Drieslein, Outdoor News managing editor and president. “This partnership helps maintain that outdoor connection with these kids going forward.”
“The State of Minnesota certifies volunteer instructors from throughout the state, who conduct the classes in the spring, summer and also in the fall,” said Acting Capt. Jon Paurus, DNR hunter education coordinator. Youth have until Nov. 30, 2015 to request their free Minnesota Outdoor News subscription.
