CO Joyce Kuske (Little Falls) spoke at the Pierz Firearm safety class, attended the DNR fire wardens? banquet, had a CLC college student ride a long, investigated a burn barrel (garbage burning) complaint, and assisted the Morrison County Sheriff?s department with two pursuits. A trespass complaint of a person found antler shed hunting on posted private property led Officers? Kuske and Bertram into a case of the person taking an over limit of bucks last deer season. Violations found were gross misdemeanor trespass, buck over limit, illegal lend/borrow licenses, restitution charges for the bucks taken, and fail to register deer.
