CO Mitch Sladek (Big Lake) worked fishermen on the Mississippi River between Elk River and St. Cloud where fishing has been slow. He checked goose hunters in the area. He assisted with a number of nuisance beaver issues. He worked at the St Croix River bridge detail.

CO Rick Reller (Buffalo) completed step one of the field training process with a COC. CO Reller checked early goose hunters and found most were having a hard time locating the birds or the timing was off for the field or waters they were hunting. The COC gave a FAS presentation to approximately 40 students in Rockford. Enforcement action was taken for hunting waterfowl with a shotgun capable of holding more than three shells, possession of a small amount of marijuana, making false application for license, angling without a license and no PFD in watercraft.

CO Todd Langevin (Center City) reports a busy week on area lakes. The nice weather had many boaters and anglers on the water. Local accesses were worked for AIS violations. CO Langevin worked two days on the St. Croix River on the bridge project. Violations included no license in possession, fail to display registration and fail to remove drain plug.

CO Travis Muyres (Cambridge) investigated a report of dogs chasing deer near Isanti. CO Muyres talked to several landowners regarding anticipated trespass issues this fall. CO Muyres also worked AIS enforcement.
