 This loon carrying babies was spotted on Wilson Lake in northeast Minnesota. The babies were apparently less than three weeks old, as they still spent a lot of time riding on the back of one of the adults. Photo by Pete Markham.

Hunting wild turkeys is popular in Minnesota. These two boys bagged these birds last year (and they did it again this year). At left is Hank Komrosky and at right is Blake Johnson. They hunt on private property near Detroit Mountain. They love using their turkey calls to lure the big birds in. Submitted photo.
