MN 2010 fishing licenses, walleye stamp on sale now Minnesota's 2010 fishing licenses and the state's second-ever walleye stamp are now on sale. Anglers who purchase a license early in March can fish for 14 months, since the license does not expire until April 30, 2011. The walleye stamp, though not nec- essary to catch and keep walleye, is an innovative way for anglers to volun- tarily donate funds for walleye stock- ing. Probeeds'from walleye stamp sales go directly to a special DNR account for walleye stocking activities. "If you didn't buy a license or wall-. eye stfimp last year, now's the time to get one," said Stbve Michaels, Min- nesota Department of Natural Re- sources (DNR) license center manager. "The 2010 license enables you to enjoy the !ast two months of the 2009 season plus all of the 2010 season." Minnesota 2009 fishing licenses expire April 30. Minnesota residents need to have a state driver's license or state identifi- cation card to purchase a license. A walleye stamp validation costs $5 and for $2 more, the DNR will mail you the actual collector's stamp. This year's walleye stamp was painted by Minnesota artist Tim Turenne of Rich- field. It features two walleye, one of which is preparing to strike at a lure. Hunting, wildlife programs receive funding for projects U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar has announced that Minnesota'will receive $30,978,760 to support hunting, sport fishing, fish and wildlife conservation and education programs across Min- nesota. The funds will be made avail- able through the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration Program (WSFR). "No matter what the season, Min- nesotans proudly carry on long-stand- ing outdoor traditions, including hunting and fishing," said Klobuchar. "In the land of 10,000 lakes, we recog- nize the value of the great outdoors, and these funds will continue to protect our natural land, water and wildlife habitats so that we can enjoy them for generations to.come." The WSFR program works to con- .serve and manage fish and wildlife and their habitats. Min.nesota is expected to use the funding to provide technical assistance, instructor training, curricu- lum development and other support to the Minnesota Hunter Recruitment and Retention Program. Klobuchar serves on the Senate En- vironment and Publics Works Com- mittee and is a cosponsor of the National Fish Habitat Conservation Act.
