Here to help
DNR's work in recruitment, retention and reactivation – R3 for short – has one primary goal: Helping you find the information and learn the skills needed to enjoy Minnesota's great outdoors.
Help guide efforts to increase participation in hunting and angling
The DNR invites citizens to nominate themselves to serve on a 15-member council to discuss approaches to recruit, retain, and reactivate hunters and anglers.
