Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz hosts annual turkey hunt in Northfield

Hunters pursued gobblers on private land in Dakota County. The only turkey that was tagged from the day came from Greta Alquist, who is a member of Minnesota DNR’s R3 program (recruit, retain, reactivate). She was guided by James Burnham, DNR’s R3 coordinator.
The R3 program engages people who aren’t familiar with hunting and fishing to learn from mentors as they embark on hunts or fishing trips together. 

Teamwork helps complete Iowa’s annual spring gillnetting for walleye

While the Iowa Great Lakes were still covered with ice, Storm Lake and Clear Lake were open, and with the warm weather, the water temperatures shot up rapidly, and gill netting took off at those facilities.
The gill netting went so well that by Wednesday, April 12, the full quota of eggs had been reached without needing anything from the Spirit Lake Hatchery. Hawkins notes that Storm Lake spawned out 890 female walleyes producing 631 quarts of eggs, while Clear Lake spawned out 670 female walleyes producing 356 quarts of eggs.

Cold weather duty for summer shirts

Being able to figure out unusual jobs for any item can save time, save money, or can just be a good hack. 
One of the clothing hacks I’ve been doing for the last couple of years is putting my summer, performance fabric shirts to work all year ’round, for late season hunts, mid-season ice fishing, cold spring mornings and other times long before summer sun is an issue.

Iowa Natural Resources Commission approves purchase of land

The commission agreed to purchase a 20-acre tract from Kay Livingston at a cost of $85,000, the appraised value of the land. Two members of the board, Laura Foell and Laura Hommel, voted against the purchase.
The land is located in northeastern Clayton County, five miles north of Garnavillo. The land was purchased through funding from Pittman-Robertson ($80,900) as well as donations from Marlene Michel ($3,800) and the Upper Iowa Audubon Chapter ($300).
