ST. PAUL, Minn. - Adults and kids who hold a 2013 hunting or fishing license are in line for a different kind of outdoor adventure... and at a discount, no less.
The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is teaming up with the Minnesota Twins to offer discounted tickets to six games this season, and a blaze orange Twins cap to boot.
"Hunting, fishing and the Twins are all big parts of Minnesota's culture," said Jenifer Wical, DNR customer enhancement manager. "This is a great deal for those who love the outdoors and outdoors baseball."
The special offer for license holders starts with the April 13 home game against the New York Mets at 3:10 p.m. It also includes home games on April 27-28 against the Texas Rangers, Aug. 3 against the Houston Astros, Aug. 18 against the Chicago White Sox and Sept. 7 against the Toronto Blue Jays.
Discounted ticket prices range from $12 to $20, depending on the game.
"The DNR is able to provide an additional value to its first-time or long-time license buyers," said Phil McMullen, Twins ticket sales executive. "For us, it's a way to express our appreciation for those who have contributed to fish and wildlife conservation through their license purchase."
Those who want to buy discount tickets should go to a special page on the DNR website, and enter the transaction number, which is printed on the hunting or fishing license. A limited number of tickets are available for each game and will be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis.
The offer is available online only.
