District 13 - West Metro area

Last updated: 2014-09-16

CO Steve Walter (Waconia) spent much of the week following up on zebra mussel violations. He attended a district qualification shoot. The archery deer, small game and youth waterfowl openers were worked. More kids were seen hunting the youth waterfowl day than any other year and all had very good luck. Enforcement action was taken for transporting zebra mussels, no personal flotation devices onboard watercraft and no federal duck stamp.

CO Tony Salzer (Osseo) patrolled Hennepin County for waterfowl activity. Salzer also patrolled for angling activity. He also attended some training pertaining to trapping.

CO Vang Lee (ELCOP)) attended the district shoot in Dakota County and worked the small game opener in Scott County. He investigated a TIP complaint of someone digging and filling a shoreline on Prior Lake, but it turned out that they have a legitimate permit from the state. He also answered many calls on big game and small game regulations in the Hmong community.

CO Thephong Le (ELCOP) attended the fall in-service training firearms qualification. He worked with CO Heyn during the 2014 Small Game Opener in southeast Minnesota. He patrolled the Bloomington station for angling activity and followed up with reported AIS violations.
