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.
GRAND FORKS, N.D. -- Debate over the potential uses and abuses of unmanned aircraft for hunting is heating up around the country, but North Dakota game officials have already put the matter to rest.
A ban on using unmanned aircraft, referred to as drones in the wording, was included this year and last in several North Dakota Game and Fish Department season opener proclamations.
Under state law, anyone operating a car, snowmobile or aircraft cannot intentionally kill, chase or harass game. The proclamations go on to add it is “illegal to use aircraft for spotting game 72 hours prior to and during the hunting season.”
MEDORA, N.D. -- One by one, the birds were taken from their kennel-like containers. Their sharp talons were snared in an effort to protect the handlers.
Staff from the Dakota Zoo in Bismarck and Theodore Roosevelt National Park released two red-tailed hawks and a golden eagle Wednesday at the park's South Unit.
COTTON, Minn. — Minnesota’s firearms deer opener came whooshing in brisk and breezy Saturday morning. Daylight found Bob Essler of Sauk Center, Minn., in his enclosed deer stand several feet off the ground near Cotton. Even in the sturdy stand, the wind was a factor.
“This thing is rockin’,” said Essler, 76. “First time it’s ever done that.”
From March to October, Hermantown paddler traveled the wilderness
Gary Fiedler had dreamed about a canoe trip like this for a long time.
He had a taste of it in 2009, when he made a six-week trip to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness and Ontario’s Quetico Provincial Park.
TOGO, Minn. — Clyde, a handsome English setter, loped through a stand of young aspen. He was all business. The bell on his collar jingled. His nose sifted the humid October air for the scent of a ruffed grouse or woodcock.
Measure 5 has its faults, but the threats to N.D. wildlife are too dire to stay on the present course.
North Dakota’s state bird could be in trouble. Earlier this year, the Game and Fish Department added the bird to its Conservation Priority List.
