Spielbauer says the school won't seek out a conference until it is formally accepted into the NAIA.

August brood counts show increased populations in several East River locations. 97623 :21 “productive this year”.
Kirschenmann says some traditional hot spots stayed about the same. 97624 :28 “a whole lot”.
Kirschenmann says hunters need to keep track of where steel shot is required, and be careful not to ignite fires.
WILDLIFE & SPORT DAY… Saturday has been declared Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration Day in South Dakota.
The proclamation honors the 75th anniversary of the Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration Program and highlights the federal money derived from the program that helps fund wildlife and fish management in South Dakota.
The program was started in 1937 when Congress, working in cooperation with sportsmen and sporting goods-related businesses, instituted a hunting equipment excise tax paid by manufacturers. A similar tax on fishing equipment was added in 1950. Since its inception, more than $13 billion has been distributed to state game and fish agencies across the nation to help fund management programs.
South Dakota received more than $10.8 million in federal aid last year from the program, which comprised about 22 percent of the Game, Fish and Parks Department operating budget.
