As the Host of Minnesota Bound for the last 23 years, it's certainly understandable that Ron Schara's final sign off would be a special, all-be-it emotional one. His daughter and of course his famous sidekick Raven the black lab, proudly stood by his side.
After leaving his role as the Star Tribune's outdoors columnist, Schara hosted "Minnesota Bound" for 23 years, and eventually launched his own production company, Ron Schara Productions, that specializes in outdoor storytelling.
Minnesota Bound airs Saturdays at 6:35 p.m. and Sundays at 10:35 p.m. on KARE 11.
