In an effort to rebuild deer numbers across the state, the DNR will be taking a conservative approach in the upcoming hunting season. That means in 95 percent of the state a hunter will only be able to take one deer, and in many areas a lottery has been instituted. "To shoot a doe, hunters may have to apply for a permit in areas where they haven't in the past and, in some places, no antlerless harvest will be allowed," said Leslie McInenly, big game program leader for the DNR, in a news release.

Aside from some reports of floating ice, Brainerd area lakes appear to be wide open heading into Saturday’s fishing opener. “It’s looking very good,” said Sherree Wicktor, owner of S & W Bait on Highway 371 North.

MINNEAPOLIS - Owatonna's battering ball-control offense and stifling defense were too much for the Brainerd Warriors to overcome as the Huskies posted a 24-0 win in the Prep Bowl Class 5A state championship game Saturday night at the Metrodome.

A line of strong thunderstorms rolled across the Brainerd lakes area Thursday afternoon, bringing with it heavy rain and high winds. In Crosslake, there were 26 outages affecting 400 people, according to Char Kinzer, Crow Wing Power public relations manager. The outages were caused by trees being knocked onto power lines, Kinzer said, and a couple of power poles also were snapped by high winds. Kinzer said a crew of 19 were in Crosslake and would work through the night to restore power, if needed.
