A conservation officer escorted 2 people out the woods in the buffalo area on Sat. Baiting was the issue. If this is true, Thank you to however gave the TIP. Don't know if they were related to the Schmidt twins, but it was there property.

DNR was using aerial surveilance and GPS prior to the season...so it could have been something spotted from the air that tipped them off.

Way to go DNR! I am so sick and tired of the (Contact Us Please) that think they can bait deer and get away with it. I would like to see the penalties increase, more equipment taken, as well as thier priveleges removed for a couple of years. Baiting is flat out unethical and other hunters should be outraged at guys doing this.

I was biking a year ago on a bike trail and noticed red dots in the woods. I took a close look (yes, I tresspassed) and found a deer stand with apples tied with string all around the stand and a deer block.

I called TIP.

Does baiting make hunting more fun. To me hunting is thrilling because you don't bait and It's more difficult that way. If you want to shoot baited animals you should just as well go shoot cows in a fenced field eating at a corn trough. Of course I'm kidding to make a point. Besides you'd be the target for the Farmer if you we're doing that.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
