BRAINERD, Minn.—Wild rice is as synonymous with Minnesota cuisine as lakes are to the state's reputation. Wild rice has been used as a food source for centuries, and it's grown in more than half of Minnesota's counties. Clearly, it's a big deal. In this week's Northland Outdoors TV episode, we visit a central Minnesota family which has made a living on harvesting wild rice for four generations. The crew also travels to Wisconsin for a very special pheasant hunt. See it all in this weekend's episode of "Northland Outdoors TV."
BRAINERD, Minn.—In this week's Northland Outdoors TV episode, we examine the plight of the prairie chicken, which is making a comeback on the flatlands of western Minnesota at The Nature Conservancy's Bluestem Prairie Scientific and Natural Area located just 20 miles east of Moorhead, Minn. And then travel with the crew to the Hawk Ridge Nature Reserve and Hawk Ridge Bird Observatory just north of the city of Duluth, Minn., which for several reasons becomes a bird migration superhighway each fall, creating a bird migration unlike you've ever seen.
BRAINERD, Minn.—In this week's Northland Outdoors TV episode, we feature northeast South Dakota veteran trapper John Almquist who for 50 years, regardless of the weather conditions, has walked his prairie trapline, not for the money, but to connect with the outdoors on a very personal basis. And join the crew as they travel to the southwestern Minnesota town of Hendricks to see how Bank Brewing Co., a successful private craft beer business, is working to preserve quality wildlife management areas and create new, premiere wildlife habitat by serving up beer.
