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.

Leftover wolf licenses sell out in less than a minute

More than 300 leftover hunting and trapping licenses for Minnesota’s late wolf season, which begins Saturday, were sold out in less than a minute Monday.
“They went really quickly,’’ said Rick Nordby of the Department of Natural Resources. He said five people were in line at the DNR’s St. Paul office when the surplus licenses went on sale at noon.
“We got one person through,’’ he said, before the licenses were gone. The licenses were available at the 1,500 electronic license vendors around the state.
The DNR offered 187 surplus hunting licenses and 130 surplus trapping licenses — leftovers that weren’t bought by people who had won the right to buy them in a lottery. Applicants not selected in this year’s early or late season wolf license lottery could buy the licenses on a first-come, first-served basis.
The DNR allocated 2,400 wolf licenses for the late hunting and trapping season.
