DISCOVERING | Great Lakes Fishing Decree & Wolf Trail Cameras


Episode 56 - I talk to Dave Caroffino, MDNR Fisheries Tribal Coordination Unit Manager, about the 2023 Great Lakes Fishing Decree, the newest fishing agreement between the tribal, state and federal governments. Find the entire interview here on my YouTube channel.

Next I talk to MDNR Wildlife Biologist Brian Roell at the October Natural Resources Commission meeting about the trail camera survey the DNR recently launched to gather wolf population estimates throughout the year.

Also during the NRC meeting, Brian presented steps necessary to create a wolf hunt in the U.P. in the event wolves are federally de-listed, and the public gave their input on wolf management.

Plus a really cool viewer video!
