If you are looking to get into more hunting and fishing, the DNR is offering clinics.

There is no shortage of things to do outdoors in Michigan. Now the Michigan Department of Natural Resources is hooking you up with a chance to learn more about hunting and fishing options in this great state.

The Department of Natural Resources Outdoor Skills Academy is giving you the opportunity to learn more about ice fishing, steelhead fishing, and turkey hunting. These clinics will be held throughout March at the Carl T. Johnson Hunting and Fishing Center in Cadillac.
