(Plymouth, Minn.) — As a Jr. B.A.S.S. state champion angler, 13-year old Tyler Bahr estimates that he goes fishing more than 200 days per year near his Brainerd, Minn., home. He is a member of the Brainerd Warrior High school fishing team, and as the recipient of the November Outdoor Youth of the Month recognition, Bahr has named this organization to allocate a $250 honorarium that is part of his award through the program offered by Clam Outdoors and Outdoor News.
Staff from Outdoor News and Clam selected Bahr after receiving nominations from readers identifying Minnesota students in grades 7-12 who demonstrate leadership or excellence in the outdoor pursuits including: habitat restoration efforts, archery, the shooting sports, or mentored fishing and hunting programs.
Read a biography of Bahr’s experiences as an 8th-grader fishing at the TBF regionals on the Ohio River and his message to other up-and-coming hunters and fisherman, in the Nov. 11 issue of Minnesota Outdoor News (Page 44).
In addition the donation that will benefit the 120-member Warrior fishing team, as the youth selected to receive the Outdoor Youth of the Month, Bahr will receive a $250 cash award and $250 in merchandise from Clam Outdoors, in addition to a plaque, and a subscription to Outdoor News.
