Even if the fish aren’t biting, the ducks aren’t flying and the pheasants aren’t flushing, Doug Smith says any day spent outdoors is a good day. A Minnesota native, he’s been covering the outdoors for the Star Tribune since 1995. He considers walleyes fried over a campfire to be gourmet cuisine.

Minnesota's duck season opens Saturday, and the DNR's first weekly waterfowl migration report is out.

It says most wildlife managers are expecting a fair to good opener with hunters shooting mostly blue-winged teal, wood ducks and mallards. Wetland conditions are improved some from last season.  Temperatures should be seasonal this weekend compared to the near record cold temperatures last year on the opener.
