Here are a few more Dumbest Poachers of the day

1.CO Don Bozovsky (Hibbing) received a call about an advertisement on Craigslist regarding someone who wanted to trade a deer license for deer meat. The officer conducted a successful undercover trade, which was followed by a citation
With a little patients he might have caught the real poacher instead of some poor old bloke that likes a little venison and maybe unable to get out anymore.
But law's are laws!

Fredin received a complaint of shooting from the road, and license plate number was given. The next night, CO Fredin was informed a fawn was shot from the road and the vehicle took off. The vehicle returned with the officer waiting nearby. It turns out the vehicle was the same as the previous night, and to top it off, the three occupants were the same three who shot from the road and were charged on opening weekend. The shooter was charged, and the firearm was seized.
Now this is the kind of pinch that needs to be dealt with! And what about the vehical?

3.Enforcement action was taken on a man who tagged a deer with a fishing license, then failed to register the deer before processing it.

4. CO Dan Malinowski (Fosston) reports one young hunter accidently tripped into a bear den and had to dispatch the angry bear.
Had a nephew that stumbled into a den but was to busy running to shoot!

5.CO Shane Osborne (Evansville) received a TIP call on Sunday night about a deer hunter using a rifle in the shotgun zone. A hunter was found using a 12-gauge bolt-action shotgun, which appeared to look like a rifle.
6.CO Sam Hunter (Park Rapids) and Officer Adam responded to a call from a landowner who believed hunters were shooting from the road and trespassing. An investigation resulted in a still very live deer being recovered from the suspect’s vehicle.
Good for the landowner!

7.CO Nikki Shoutz (Pine River) reports a horse was shot by a deer hunter at a Pine River-area ranch. A firearm was seized, and a projectile was recovered from the dead horse, with charges pending results of the investigation.
8.A wolf hunter who brought a wolf to a local taxidermist was not the same wolf hunter who tagged the timber wolf.
How many times is this going to happen? No party hunting!

9. CO Dustie Heaton (Willow River) assisted CO Jeff Humphrey on a baiting case in which large piles of carrots were present throughout the property. Enforcement action was taken for hunting in a baited area, illegal party hunting, lending/borrowing deer tags,, and transporting illegally taken big game. Three bucks, a rifle, and a motor vehicle were seized as evidence. Heaton retrieved the firearm that was to be seized from a deer stand. Next to the rifle, she noted a book opened and face-down marking a page. The book had a pair of glasses resting on top of it. The title of the book was, “Poachers Caught.”
Will he get a complimentry copy of the next edition?

10. CO Patrick McGowan (Hastings) and K9 Axel assisted with evidence recovery regarding a deer that was shot in a closed refuge, with K9 Axel finding a shell casing that showed the deer was shot within the closed area.
