District 15 - Marshall area

Last updated: 2015-11-24

CO Matt Loftness (Marshall) spent the week checking waterfowl, pheasant, and archery deer hunters. Time was also spent checking trappers, fishermen, and working on follow up investigation stemming from the firearms deer season. Cold weather late in the week froze up most shallow/small sloughs. A few divers are being seen on larger bodies of water. Archery deer hunters are reminded that the muzzleloader deer season begins on November 28 so firearms deer season blaze orange requirements go into effect.

CO Doug Lage (Marshall) conducted his weekly radio show on KLOH Radio. Shore fishing has been active on the area lakes. Large flocks of northern ducks have been seen in the area. With fresh snow on the ground, pheasant hunters are having some success.

CO Jim Robinson (Slayton) spent the week working pheasant, waterfowl, and deer hunters. Firearms Deer Season investigations continue. A case was concluded involving hunters damaging trail cameras of others. A Snowmobile Safety Class was taught in Luverne.
