Bremer Outdoors: Outdoor Park

Posted: Updated:

BRENT: "Hello, I'm Brent Mattson of the Bremer Outdoor Team along with co-host Greg Gullickson from North Dakota Game & Fish. And Greg, what an exciting day here, it's a beautiful day in July. We're at the state fair at the Game & Fish Park Greg, and  the wind just picked up which is really helping us out today here. But, uh, let's go ahead and talk about some upgrades the Game & Fish has, uh, developed since the flood two years ago."

GREG: "Yea, we've had a lot of changes out here and probably the most noticeable, uh, would be the expansion of the area. We literally doubled in size of our area out here. And allowing us to have a new information cabin where you can visit with a biologist. And again, you know the core areas we have during the fair are fishing, hunting, trapping and archery. And again, the whole area is free and it's literally a garden spot out here at the fair. Green grass, plenty of shade, so a good place to go and get away. Um, and you know the fair was a huge success again this year. But, outside of the fair, the area also gets a lot of use with the upcoming youth festival on Thursday, September 6th. It's used year round by Boy Scout and Girl Scout groups. And again, an urban fishery that is top notch. We don't net these fish out of here once the fair is over. So again, it's a great urban fishery that can be used throughout the open water period. So stop by the fair pond anytime after the fair, it's open daylight hours only. Catch and release only. Uh, but again, to all those that came and visited the Conservation Park during the fair, thank you again for another successful 2013 fair."

BRENT: "That's it for this week's episode of Bremer Outdoors. If you'd like to learn more about the Bremer Outdoor Team and how we're taking action with Minot area youth, just give us a call at the bank today. Remember, Bremer is taking action outdoors."

GREG: "You know you mentioned the wind, Brent. It is so nice to have that wind flowing through your hair."

BRENT: "You can say that again."
