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.

ELY — Night had settled over the Wingnut encampment on Snowbank Lake. The big wall tent radiated lantern light from within. Moonlight illuminated the surface of the lake. A row of tiki torches, orange flames dancing in the night, lit the path from a campfire on shore to the tent pitched on the ice.
Rudy Hummel knows something about the importance of a good place to sleep. The Hermantown youth, who has been sleeping outside since June 7, is using his outdoor sleeping streak to raise money for Western Lake Superior Habitat for Humanity.

Deep snow and deep cold already are pushing northern Minnesota’s white-tailed deer into mid-winter patterns. They’re seeking cover in conifers and, along the North Shore, probably will be moving down from the ridges to where snow is less deep, biologists say.
When the going gets tough for deer, many people think that feeding them is the answer. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources advises against it, said Jeff Lightfoot, DNR regional wildlife manager at Grand Rapids.
