Talkin
Q. Recently, I saw a blog post you wrote about donating deer hides. Is there any place in the area where a person can take a hide and have it made into gloves or clothing? Or are there any outdoor classes in the area where a person can learn? A. I checked with Jim Benson of Sportsmans Taxidermy Studio in East Grand Forks, Minn. and he referred me to Century Leather Products in Owatonna, Minn.

Pheasant Ph-amily Efforts of EGF family help Red River Valley Pheasants Forever chapter win national No Child Left Indoors award
EAST GRAND FORKS, Minn. -- When Brian and Michelle Nelson took over the Red River Valley Chapter of Pheasants Forever in 2005, they faced the challenge of reviving a chapter in a region with no pheasants, no habitat for pheasants and no prospects for having a sustainable wild population of the popular game birds. Tall order, that. So, instead of focusing on pheasants and habitat, the East Grand Forks couple and their six kids rolled up their sleeves and went to work on fundraising, selling raffle tickets and recruiting volunteers to help them raise money for hunter education programs, youth trapshooting teams and other kids' outdoor learning initiatives.

National Archery in the Schools Program takes flight at EGF Sacred Heart.
EAST GRAND FORKS, Minn. -- Hitting the bulls-eye is always a good thing when shooting archery, but it wasn't the main focus for the eager fourth- and fifth-graders lined up to hone their skills on a recent cold Sunday afternoon in a gym at East Grand Forks Sacred Heart School. This session was more about form and safety -- to start with, at least -- and the three boys and two girls hung on every word from instructor Wayne Pietruszewski. The bulls-eyes would come later. "Who remembers the right way to shoot a bow?" Pietruszewski quizzed the students, who responded with the archery equivalent of lip-synching, drawing back pieces of string with one arm while keeping the other arm straight to mimic the act of shooting a bow. Proper form, Pietruszewski explained, will result in straighter-flying arrows. "That's going to come with practice," he said. "The more we shoot, the better we'll get."

Catfish excursion on the Red River
DRAYTON, N.D.--Brad Durick watched the screen of his Humminbird Onix 10 depthfinder and saw just enough change in the bottom of the river to convince him to drop the anchor. It wasn't much--a small midriver hole that dropped into about 10 feet of water--but the Grand Forks catfish guide was fishing a stretch of the Red known for its subtleties.
