St. Olaf contest is Sunday Feb. 10th, 2 - 3:30 pm., after the Beaver Lake contest. If the Beaver Lake contest gets rescheduled, believe it will be announced on KOWZ but not sure on the St. Olaf contest. In case of inclement weather, reschedule date for the St. Olaf contest is Feb. 17th.

Just got off the phone with one of the kingpins, St. Olaf contest is called off until the 17th & will be held from 2 - 3:30 pm. Beaver Lake contest rescheduled for same day from noon to 1:30 pm so you can still make both.

I don't think there is a fee, just options to buy raffle tix. I've made by every year with a couple of kids and not much more than $20 spent. That's with raffles, hot cocoas, & hot dogs bought. You can't go wrong!

Anybody been doing anything on either of these lakes for panfish/crappies? Looking to find some for the pan for supper Friday night if anyone is out and about. 3 or 4 of us plan to head down and try it out from Owatonna. We have never fished either lake and have no idea where to go. If anyone wants to offer any suggestions since we probably won't move much if any that would be great. Fish shallow? Deeper?

Thanks in advance. Email me if you prefer....: mcoien@fedins.com

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
