Cost is $35 Temporary off-highway vehicle trail closures begin in November The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will restrict recreational use of offhighway vehicles (OHVs) in some areas during the upcoming firearms deer hunting season. Vehicles affected by the restrictions include all-terrain vehicles (ATVs), off-highway motorcycles (OHMs) and registered off-road vehicles (ORVs) such as four-wheel drive trucks that are not being used in conjunction with deer hunting by a licensed deer hunter. The restrictions, which apply to state forest trails and access routes but not to state forest roads, aim to protect recreational riders from potentially unsafe riding conditions and to minimize conflicts between deer hunters and recreational riders who may inadvertently disturb them. Licensed deer hunters may still use these routes in conjunction with their hunting activity: • Before legal shooting time. • From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. • After legal shooting hours. Effective dates of the recreational riding restrictions will be: • Nov. 8 to 23 for the northeastern Minnesota 100 Series deer season. • Nov. 8 to 16 for the Minnesota 200 Series deer season. Because recreational OHV trails located in southeastern Minnesota close Nov. 1 each year, no additional OHV riding restrictions are necessary in that part of the state. While many recreational OHV riders have voluntarily opted not to ride forest trails during deer hunting and smallgame seasons, recreational OHV riding has become a yearround sport for many. DNR officials remind everyone who visits Minnesota’s state forests this fall to put safety first. For more information, see the 2014 deer season map online or contact the DNR Information Center at [email protected] or 651-296-6157 or 888-6466367 between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. DNR Q & A Join the Cuyuna Iron Range Riders ATV Club Q: How can I tell when a lake has turned over in the fall, and do most fish go deeper after turnover? A: A lake has turned over when water temperatures are the same from the surface to the bottom. The process can take days or even months to complete, depending on lake shape and depth, and air and water temperatures. The only way to conclusively know when a lake has turned over is to measure the temperature at the surface of the lake and at the bottom; if they are roughly the same temperature (within a few degrees), the lake has turned over. During the process of turnover water clarity may decrease, decaying organic material can be seen suspended in the water and there can be a sulfurous odor. Before lakes turn over in the fall, temperature and oxygen may vary across depths. In these lakes, the waters below a certain depth may become oxygen-deficient during the summer. When this happens, fish cannot use this habitat and are squeezed into waters near the surface. After the lakes turn over, the oxygen levels are consistent from the surface to the bottom, and fish can use depths that were uninhabitable during the summer. Studies of walleye, northern pike, muskellunge, and cisco that were tagged with depth sensors have verified that these species use deeper depths after turnover. ‘Tis the season... to wear orange For your safety and the safety of those around you, please remember to wear a cap and outer clothing above the waist in a blaze orange color. Visitors to the Cuyuna Country State Recreational Area are ecouraged to wear orange clothing when in the rec area. The Cuyuna Iron Range Riders is a family-style group for youth to grandparents located in the Crosby-Ironton area that is dedicated to responsible riding.

Hunters can register deer through phone, internet or in person Hunters can register deer they harvest by making a telephone call, using the Internet, or bringing deer to a big-game registration station, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Registration instructions for all methods are available at www.mndnr. gov/gameregistrationhelp. “Our system gives hunters the ability to choose the registration option that works best for their situation. Electronic or phone registration is convenient for many hunters,” said Leslie McInenly, DNR big game program leader. A number of hunters still choose to go in person to registration stations. However, hunters in the southeastern Minnesota deer permit areas of 348 and 349 must register deer in person during the opening weekend of firearms season because the DNR is conducting voluntary surveillance for chronic wasting disease in these areas. Phone and Internet registration will be available for these areas once enough samples have been collected. In all areas, deer must be registered within 48 hours after the deer was taken, and before being processed and before antlers are removed. Deer can be transported out of the area where they were taken before being registered. Registration is important because it provides data on harvest that’s used for management of deer populations. Area hunters encouraged to submit deer photos this season If you were lucky enough to shoot a deer this hunting season, submit the photo to the C-I Junior League Courier.

Safety tips for shoveling snow Snow and Ice Management Association recommends the following safety tip while snow shoveling: Wear breathable layers. Layering is typical cold winter weather advice. We suggest wearing layers of loose clothing so you can peal a layer off if you get hot. Avoid wearing heavy wools, manmade materials or other materials that don’t allow perspiration to evaporate. Better choices are cotton and silk.
