CO Larry Milbridge (Warroad) worked with fellow officers on angling, boating safety and invasive species enforcement. Unstable weather limited access to Lake of the Woods, but fishing was good when you could get out.
CO Stuart Bensen (Erskine) reports some anglers are catching sunfish and crappies. Injured deer and nuisance bear calls were addressed. Complaints of a wetland alteration, and a calf killed by a timber wolf were investigated.
CO Ben Huener (Roseau) conducted angling and invasive species checks on Lake of the Woods. Many anglers are still being educated about the potentially dangerous bait being used, and lots of illegal bait is being seized. Although tip-up fishing for pike has been spotty, many large pike are being caught.
CO Larry Milbridge (Warroad)received a number of complaints regarding trucks being driven down snowmobile Grant-in-Aid trails on Lake of the Woods. L.O.W. users are reminded these trails are for snowmobiles only.
CO Robert Gorecki (Baudette)checked two anglers in a large house on Lake of the Woods. The anglers stated they only had a few fish. The officer checked the fish bucket that was sitting in one of the floor cut outs, and noticed a fish tail sticking out from under the house. A subsequent search revealed 33 walleye and sauger stashed under the house. The fish were seized and citations issued for over limits.
CO Robert Gorecki (Baudette)investigated a complaint of two road kill 10-point bucks that were unlawfully possessed. People are reminded that a permit must be obtained prior to picking up any road kill deer.

CO Jeremy Woinarowicz (Thief River Falls)worked with CO Pilot Don Murray for the firearms deer season opener. One individual fled from CO Woinarowicz in his vehicle and then ran into the woods after removing his blaze orange jacket.

CO Jeremy Woinarowicz (Thief River Falls) reported taking enforcement action on an individual that took a bear in a quota zone while only possessing a no quota zone license, with other possible charges pending further investigation.

CO Jeremy Woinarowicz (Thief River Falls)answered nuisance bear and beaver complaints and patrolled area State Parks. Area anglers were checked as well as boat and water safety checks.
