DNR Enforcement report

• CO Taylor Hochstein (Hill City) worked a mix of ATV, boating and fishing activity. Follow-up work was done on a variety of complaints including litter that was left at a public access. Several violations were addressed including operating an ATV on a bike path and on a state highway.

• CO Bob Mlynar (Aitkin) worked boating, PWC, and angling activity. Lakebed alteration and aquatic vegetation removal were also monitored. Assistance was given to the Aitkin Police Department with a call of careless, erratic driving in the hospital parking lot, which resulted in a DWI.

• CO Gregory Verkuilen (Garrison) checked lake activity where the aquatic vegetation is getting lush and labor intensive to remove from trailers. Warm water is equating to more water recreation and associated complaints like harassing loons and late PWC operation. Verkuilen also worked ATV traffic and addressed bear damage complaints.

• CO Ashley Whiteoak (Malmo) spent time maintaining equipment, working on office work, and following up on calls. The calls Whiteoak followed up on included questions on jet ski regulations, concern of wolves predating livestock, and followed up on a WCA complaint.
