Conservation Officer Phil George with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources was a guest on Rochester's Good Morning Friday with Rich Peterson and Kim David.

The water fowl hunting season gets underway this weekend for ducks and geese, pheasant season is coming up and the deer season in November.

One of our listeners called and asked Phil about getting his son the proper certification and permit and he also wondered why it was so hard to get into a hunter safety class, every time he tried they were booked up for about 6 months!

Here's the link Phil was talking about on the D-N-R website.
