In '17, it was 'kill the DNR magazine.' Now, subscription discounts.

When it comes to the WI DNR magazine Wisconsin Natural Resources, what a difference a year makes.

It took a grassroots uprising in 2017 to save the century-old publication from an ideologically-inspired Team Walker budget axe.

Now the DNR is offering current subscribers two gift subs for $1 each with an annual renewal at the existing rate of $8.97.

Is this more Walker election-year moderation? Is the DNR finally embracing the publication now that firmer agency editorial controls will block more articles about climate change?

Your guess is as good as mine, but the Walker crowd won't be there forever, and when they're gone it won't be up to the real stewards of the land to start a magazine from scratch.

So I sent in my check, and there you have it.
