The majority of COs statewide said that they had issued numerous citations for deer baiting and investigated many reports of deer baiting. Incidents included hunting over a pile of corn, over pumpkins, feed blocks and sugar beets.

In the Bemidji area, CO Brice Vollbrecht worked with DNR Forestry and the county attorney on a timber trespass case that involved illegal cutting of over 7,000 black spruce tops. Vollbrecht joined COs Brian Holt and Demosthenes Regas in investigating multiple baiting case that resulted in several guns and two deer being seized.

CO Duke Broughten (Longville) responded to one call of a person found unconscious near a trail with a loaded firearm. After further investigation, it was found that the individual was under the influence of alcohol.
Broughten arrested the person for hunting while intoxicated.

Several citizens took the time to make very important phone calls to the TIP line, resulting in the apprehension of violator who took deer illegally.

CO Pilot Jason Jensen (Brainerd) found and assisted with finding around 10 baited deer stands. He also directed COs to suspicious activity on the ground, including giving air support for transporting of an untagged deer and to officers who were removing a felon from the woods who was hunting illegally with a rifle.
