Sgt. Keith Olson (Marine Unit) worked on season ending watercraft maintenance items. Checked North Shore rivers for fall run activities, assisted the St. Louis S.O. on a domestic violence call in Gnesen Twp, checked grouse hunters north of Duluth and fielded several calls on the upcoming firearms deer season and the zone boundaries in the Duluth area.
CO Matt Miller (Marine Unit) checked grouse hunters and responded to a call of a wolf incidentally caught in a coyote trap. Although not happy to see the Conservation Officers approaching, the wolf was released unharmed. An ATV stop turned into possession of marijuana, stolen property and two truant high school students. Questions were answered about deer season and handling problem bears. Enforcement action was taken for ATV and angling violations
CO Troy Ter Meer (Marine Unit) spent the week working AIS enforcement, working on reports, on a conference call and continuing a background investigation on a candidate for the CO prep program.
