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 2021.

This is the eighth 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. In 2018, the program expanded to include participants involved in DNR-sponsored learn-to-hunt programs for adults, including the Becoming an Outdoors Woman series.

“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, and also provides a helpful tool for adults who join the outdoor community.”

“Safety training is a key part of making people safer in the field and laying the foundation for a lifetime in the outdoors,” said Capt. Jon Paurus, DNR Enforcement education program coordinator. “This partnership is a win-win all the way around.”

The DNR has modified firearms safety certification requirements on an interim basis as a result of COVID-19, with online options available. Participants in eligible programs have until Dec. 31, 2021 to request their free Minnesota Outdoor News subscription.
