Conservation Officer Report | Sports & Recreation
The Minnesota DNR provided the following summaries of last week's activity by Conservation Officers:
CO Kipp Duncan (Duluth) spent time working fishing and boating enforcement on area lakes. Officer Duncan also assisted with a possible waters violation. Some follow-up work on a possible wetlands violation was also worked on. Officer Duncan spoke about firearms safety at a youth camp.
Sgt. Keith Olson (Lake Superior Marine Unit) checked anglers and boaters on Lake Superior. He worked the Duluth/Superior Harbor during the 25th annual Bayfront Blues Festival. The pleasant weather had many enjoying the event both on land and water. He attended a “National Night Out” event with CO Schmidt.
CO Matt Miller (Lake Superior Marine Unit) checked anglers and boaters on Lake Superior. Equipment maintenance issues were handled, and preparations were made for upcoming bear and waterfowl seasons. Questions have started to come in on the new open water duck hunting on Superior. Hunters need to keep safety at the forefront of their plans, as Lake Superior is no ordinary duck lake. Enforcement action was taken for angling and ATV violations.
CO Troy Ter Meer (Lake Superior Marine Unit) checked anglers and boaters on Lake Superior and inland lakes and worked the boating traffic associated with Blues Fest. He patrolled for ATV activity and assisted on a possible wetland violation. Enforcement action was taken for boating, angling, and ATV violations.
