Pawlenty critical in his veto of game, fish provision


ST. PAUL -- A governor's veto means Minnesota landowners will not be paid to allow hunters on their property.

Also, anglers will not be allowed to use two lines to fish and spearing northern pikes in Cass Lake will not be allowed. And controversial walleye regulations for a lake where an influential state senator has a cabin will not happen.Those and other proposed game and fish provisions will remain off the books after Gov. Tim Pawlenty vetoed a natural resources bill.
