PAUL BUNYAN COUNTRY OUTDOORS: The DNR’s Dr. Michelle Carstensen on Beltrami County’s First CWD Positive and North Dakota’s New Record Walleye Angler

Jared Shypkoski of Dickinson, ND was fishing a few weekends ago with a friend and their kids. He decided to make one more run before they called it a day and said he was going to get the state record. And so he did. Fishing on Lake Oahe, he reeled in a 16 pound, 6 ounce beast and now lays claim to North Dakota’s state record. He tells us the details of his amazing day. Jared has fished walleyes nationwide and discusses where North Dakota ranks in his mind.

On a much more sober note, Beltrami County got its first CWD positive deer. And that means changes are coming to hunting procedures and much more. Dr. Michelle Carstensen, the Minnesota DNR’s Wildlife Health Program Supervisor discusses what we can expect going forward and also discusses CWD throughout Minnesota. Listen HERE:
