Widely varying ice conditions in Minnesota highlight need for safety precautions
Recent reports of vehicles breaking through the ice underscore the need for ice anglers and others to check ice thickness. The date on the calendar or old tracks in the snow have no bearing on what the ice is like today. Because conditions can vary widely even on the same body of water, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources recommends people check ice thickness at least every 150 feet.
DNR seeks input on potential waterfowl hunting changes
The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is seeking public input as it updates the state’s waterfowl hunting regulations. As a first step, the DNR is asking people to comment on potential changes that could alter seasons and create additional opportunities to hunt waterfowl.
A summary of these potential changes and a questionnaire that seeks input is available on the DNR’s website through Monday, Jan. 31. The DNR will consider this initial public input in developing its proposed changes to the waterfowl regulations. These proposed regulations will then be presented for public comment in March.
