He also handled several injured animal calls and patrolled for snowmobile activity on the Luce Line State Trail.
CO Tony Salzer (Osseo) patrolled Hennepin County for fishing activity. Ice is still thin in some spots so please be safe when walking or driving out onto the ice. Salzer also finished up some investigations from the deer season and worked the fur registration at Carlos Avery WMA.
CO Brent Grewe (Minnetonka) spent the week following up with complaints received over the deer season. CO Grewe worked a detail in St. Paul and had several complaints of waterfowl not leaving frozen sloughs. Many questions regarding the upcoming snowmobile season were handled.

CO Vang Lee (ELCOP) worked muzzleloaders and small game hunters in the metro area. He checked ice fishermen and patrolled state parks and state trails. He returned phone calls regarding small game hunting regulations and answered other hunting related questions.
CO Thephong Le (ELCOP) checked ice anglers in West Metro lakes as few are already braving Minnesota winter elements to go fishing. He patrolled Fort Snelling State Park for skiing activity. Along with CO Neitzke and two animal rescue personnel, he went to Lake Riley to rescue an ?injured swan? but the mission was aborted because the swan kept flying away and the temperature was below zero. CO Le also assisted the fur registration day at Carlos Avery WMA.
