Conservation Officer Jeremy Woinarowicz says he responded to numerous nuisance bear and -beaver complaints.
Woinarowicz says “Enforcement action for the week included angling without a valid license, unregistered off-highway motorcycle, operating an OHM on a public roadway, no lights on an ATV, and failure to display current ATV registration”.
Meanwhile, Conservation Officer Demosthenes Regas in Blackduck reports fishing “continues to be unseasonably slow on many lakes, with best reports for catching walleyes coming from Upper Red Lake and Winnibigoshish”. He says “time was spent investigating a wolf-depredation complaint, patrolling area recreational trails and handling calls of nuisance animals” this past week.
Violations encountered and addressed this past week included ATV registration and trail pass violations, failure to stop OHMs at road crossings, boating equipment, angling license, and trout stamp violations.
