Kttc channel 10 reported friday and monday that 3 african lions were spotted 7 miles north of Spring Valley. DNR went looking for them and didn't find them.

This probably would be in the Deer Creek or bear creek valley. So if your out bassin keep your eyes wide open. smile.gif

Ya know it's kinda funny how quiet they kept the situation. The only other thing I heard about this was from my neighbor down the road.
She siad that they were caught near the sumner center by the DNR with help from the people at BearCatHollow. She did not know if they were taken dead or alive. If dead I can see why it was kept quiet. They supposedly came from a private farm near LimeSprings Iowa.
So once again the woods and streams are safe for all.

SEwalleye, are you from the Racine area?

The bear has been captured. It turned out to be a cub that escaped from "bearcat hollow" a little "zoo?" in Racine. It did do over a 1000$ in damage to the house it was trying to get in to.

I grew up in town. I am now attending college at UW-La Crosse. However, I'll be home in a week. A week of staying up late and craming lots of info in the old "rock shelter"!!!

I saw that story about the cub on channel 10. FYI: There's bears farther east too. Friends of mine have seen them while fishing and just out doing chores. Have heard several rumors that the DNR released 11 males in different locations around the area. There was video tape on channel 19 of one in a La Crescent backyard this summer. Word is, the DNR will release females this coming year. Anyone else heard these stories?

      My prediction is that Pike Bay will open by May,4 and Big Bay will open by May, 12! Cliff

      It is much warmer now and after watching 30 ice outs on Vermilion, I think Pike bay will be ice free in about a week and Big bay typically follows about 10 days later.  Warm weather and wind can melt ice faster that you can believe. There might still be some ice floating around by the opener however I plan on going fishing like always. "Ace"

      I know from living on Pike pay for 27 years that this will be one of the latest, if not the latest start dates that I have seen. Good news my neighbors boat lift broke though the ice today and that typically mean that Pike bay will be open within a week. ;) "Ace" ;)

      No wake is in effect currently and will be for the weekend opener.  Spread the word.

      I wouldn't read too much into the open water in Oak Narrows. There's been open water there for more than a month. There's clearly forces other than air temps or sunshine at work there. With that said, considering the data shared by delcecchi, and the current 15-day forecast I am not without hope.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources Enforcement Division has promoted four officers – Chelsie Leuthardt, Brandon McGaw, Jen Mueller and Brett Oberg – to the position of regional training officer. They’ve been in their new positions since April 18.  The Enforcement Division’s six regional training officers are responsible for training the state’s conservation officers on topics such as defensive tactics, firearms and use of force. In addition, they train and work closely with the 6,000 volunteers who are integral to delivering the division’s education and safety training program. (The largest number of volunteers, about 4,000, are firearms safety instructors.) Regional training officers also spend a portion of their time performing the traditional field duties of a conservation officer. Following are brief bios of the newly promoted officers: Chelsie Leuthardt has been a conservation officer for four years and most recently patrolled the White Bear Lake area. “I’ve made strong connections with many instructor groups and look forward to working with them more closely,” said Leuthardt, whose area includes the southeastern part of the state. “I enjoy working with our user groups and helping to form how we train our next generations of outdoor enthusiasts.” Brandon McGaw has been a conservation officer since 2007. For most of that time, he’s been stationed in the Mora area. He’s also been a Conservation Officer Academy instructor, field training officer, firearms instructor and use of force instructor. “I really love teaching,” said McGaw, whose area includes 10 counties north of the metro. “I enjoy connecting with the students as well as the older adults who take safety training courses.” Jen Mueller began her career as a conservation officer in the Hutchinson-West station in 2012. Mueller, who was promoted after serving as an acting regional training officer, said she learned quickly that participating in the Enforcement Division’s youth safety programs was one of her favorite parts of the job. “I’m amazed by our volunteer instructor groups and how passionate they are about what they’re teaching,” said Mueller, whose area includes the southwestern part of the state. “I also enjoy teaching our officers and helping them become better equipped to deal with situations they may face in the field.” Brett Oberg has been a conservation officer for 13 years and spent much of that time in the Hutchinson-East station. He’s also been an armorer, field training officer and use of force instructor. “I really enjoy training others and seeing youth get excited about the outdoors, especially firearms and hunting,” said Oberg, whose area includes the south metro and south-central part of the state. “I also enjoy teaching at the Conservation Officer Academy and helping the new recruits become conservation officers.” The four officers join Regional Training Officer Mike Lee, who covers the northeastern part of the state, and Acting Regional Training Officer Greg Oldakowski, who is responsible for the northwestern part of the state. Bruce Lawrence is the Enforcement Division’s statewide recreational vehicle coordinator. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
