DNR: Radio-collared bears not off-limits to hunters
Radio-collared bears will continue to be fair game for hunters under a decision announced Monday by Minnesota Department of Natural Resources Commissioner Tom Landwehr.
Ely bear researcher Lynn Rogers had sought a ruling from the DNR that would make it illegal for hunters to shoot radio-collared research bears

Rogers said he was "very disappointed, considering the very strong public opinion in favor of protection."
