Time for a new approach to DNR ‘co-management’

By |December 11th, 2020|Categories: Updates|

Steve Johnson makes some good points in his recent opinion article in the Mille Lacs Messenger, "When will we be able to keep a walleye?" Mille Lacs Messenger, Nov 27, 2020. He says, "On the Native American side, subsistence and culture are the claimed reasons for the harvest." But Steve believes neither reason forces DNR to co-manage by simply reacting [...]
