DNR Enforcement report

• CO Taylor Hochstein (Hill City) worked beaver trapping, turkey hunting, angling, and ATV activity. Angling success for panfish is beginning to increase as water temperatures in smaller bays and shallow areas rise.

Violations included a juvenile passenger on an ATV not wearing the required helmet, expired ATV registration, and driving on a closed forest road.

• CO Bob Mlynar (Aitkin) worked angling and turkey hunting activity. Questions were answered regarding bowfishing and sucker spearing. Mlynar also assisted with a search for a boy in Crow Wing County.

• CO Gregory Verkuilen (Garrison) checked an increase in anglers brought out by the warmer water and bite picking up. Burning was monitored due to high fire danger. Verkuilen also checked beaver trappers, turkey hunters, and lake equipment going back into the water.

• CO Ashley Whiteoak (Malmo) spent time maintaining equipment, delivering equipment, working on office work, and following up on calls. The calls Whiteoak followed up on included questions on boating regulations, fishing regulations, ATV regulations, and a complaint of dogs chasing deer.
