Talkin' with Dokken
Q. I've heard reports that spring snow goose seasons again are underway in North Dakota and Minnesota. Why are these seasons offered? A. The spring snow goose season is a federal "conservation order" -- as opposed to a traditional hunting season -- implemented by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service some 15 years ago in an effort to reduce overabundant populations of light geese that were decimating the fragile arctic coastlines where they breed.

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."

Big fun on Big Windy New 'Crank Weight' system passes the big walleye test on Lake Winnipeg
LAKE WINNIPEG, Man. -- On a day when the lake sometimes called "Big Windy" was living up to its blowhard reputation, the adverse conditions we'd battled to get here Tuesday morning quickly were forgotten when the big red blip appeared on the depth finder screen. So what if the Canadian weather forecast, which called for northwest winds gusting to 60 kilometers per hour -- 30 mph for us four Americans -- was right, for a change? A big fish lurking below the 4
