Prairie Sportsman host, Bret Amundson, hunts ducks in western Minnesota and Stein Innvaer, Minnesota DNR wildlife manager, shows viewers the impressive 10,000 acre restored wetland duck habitat at Swan Lake.

The DNR’s Molly Tranel Nelson and Conservation Corps burn boss, Doug Ekstrom, also show how prescribed burns benefit Minneopa State Park near Mankato.
