DNR notes


DNR conservation officer Nikki Shoutz (Pine River) assisted with fur tagging at the Backus DNR office as the very short (six-day) fisher and pine marten season came to a close Nov. 29.

Bobcat and otter season remain open through Jan. 6, 2013.

Shoutz gave a law talk on snowmobile safety to the class in Emily and checked ice fishermen on several area lakes who found good luck with catching pan fish.
