Outdoor News, Inc. Minnesota DNR Partners in Youth Proposal
(Plymouth, Minn.) – Outdoor News, Inc, publisher of local fishing and hunting newspapers in seven Great Lakes states, is partnering with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources to offer free subscriptions to 11- to 17-year-olds who will take a firearms education course in 2021.
Under this partnership, now in its eighth year, young people can receive a three-month subscription to Minnesota Outdoor News upon successful completion of DNR-sponsored courses. In 2018, the program expanded to include participants in DNR-sponsored adult education programs, including the Becoming a Woman on the Street series.
Minnesota Outdoor News is a valuable resource that offers tips, opportunities and news for these young sports fans. This partnership allows us to highlight Minnesota’s hunting and fishing culture while marking a milestone in its existence, said Rob Drieslein, editorial director and president of Outdoor News. This partnership allows these children to stay connected to nature and is also a useful tool for adults joining the outdoor community.
Safety training is an important part of improving the safety of people in the field and laying a foundation for the outdoors, said Capt. Jon Paurus, the DNR’s law enforcement education program coordinator. This partnership is a win-win situation.
DNR has made transitional changes to firearm safety certification requirements as a result of VIC-19, with an online option. Members of eligible programs may apply before 31. December 2021 to sign up for a free subscription to Minnesota Outdoor News.
