The Minnesota DNR provided the following summaries of last week’s activities and observations by Conservation Officers:

CO Don Bozovsky (Hibbing): Enforcement action was taken on no angling license in possession and an unattended line.

CO Matt Frericks (Virginia) spent time working on and closing out numerous cases from deer season. Of the anglers he checked throughout the week, angling with extra lines seemed to be a violation some anglers were trying to get away with. In one instance on a remote lake, CO Frericks observed two anglers with eight lines through the ice. One of the anglers, a former Minnesota resident who now resides in Hawaii, didn’t even bother to purchase a license. Both anglers were cited. The following day as CO Frericks was preparing the reports for court he noticed the Hawaiian resident had purchased a resident muzzleloader license earlier in the month. The former resident was cited for a non-resident purchasing a resident license.

CO Anthony Bermel (Babbitt): Violations addressed included angling without a license, no license in possession and fail to register deer as required.
Several deer hunting investigations are ongoing.

CO Mike Fairbanks (Deer River) took enforcement action for license issues.

CO Gary Lefebvre (Pengilly) handled two big game complaints during the week.

CO Randy Hanzal (Duluth) received several calls of a deer with an arrow in its head; however, the deer was not located.

CO Kipp Duncan (Duluth) spent the majority of the week working on a couple deer hunting violations. One investigation resulted with charges for archery hunting deer over bait and another is still ongoing.
