Sgt. Keith Olson (Marine Unit) worked several details with fellow District 8 officers. During the week deer camps checked and observed many left camp early and headed for home. Olson assisted an Officer with a loaded firearm in a motor vehicle investigation which was turned over to a Fond du Lac officer. Snowmobiles have been running some of the trails in the Duluth area. A baiting complaint was investigated but the information proved to be unreliable. Trappers were checked in the Cotton area and road kill permits were issued.

CO Matt Miller (Marine Unit) checked deer hunters and trappers. While investigating a dumping complaint at one public water access, another person was caught in the act dumping at a different access nearby. Responsibly disposing of your trash is cheaper for everyone. A wolf complaint was checked and deer season work was done with other Duluth area officers. Enforcement action for small game and litter violations were also handled.

CO Troy Ter Meer (Marine Unit) worked deer hunting activity most of the week, including trespassing complaints, shoot from roadway, shoot doe in buck only area, operating ATVs in restricted areas and restricted times and hunting over bait. Ter Meer continued deer season work in complaint areas. Enforcement action was taken for big game violations, ATV issues and drug activity.
