K9 Conservation Officers

Recommended Posts

Had a chance to visit last nite with a Conservation Officer and his K9 pal. Man, those dogs are impressive!

One story he shared really illustrated this. The CO heard a gunshot an hour and a half before legal shooting light on deer opener. He found a vehicle parked and told the dog to track the guy. The dog tracked him right to the tree he was sitting in. They asked the guy if he had shot and the guy said "no". The CO told the dog to search for evidence and the dog sniffed out the ejected shell that had just been fired out of the leaves. The guy then admitted that he had shot at "shiny eyes" illuminated by his flashlight. After listening to him, I am a believer in those dogs!

That is fan f$%*ing tastic!! I would love to see more of them out and about!! I wonder how one would go about putting together a donation to the DNR for such an operation. Send them through any of the WMA's around the state on duck opener weekend and they could pay for themselves with citations alone!!

They do!

I have been checked numerous times by CO's with dogs. Especially out around the Marsh Lake area (LacQuiParle). I remember getting checked one time and as the CO was talking to me and my buddy he just kept telling the dog "hunt em' up" and the whole time that dog ran around us looking for anything. He must have covered a hundred yard area, in the time the CO spent with us. I can assure you that you would not get by with anything in that situation.

I've hunted out at LQP many times and never been checked by a CO. We are usually either in one of the handicap accessable blinds with a friend of mine or on the river so maybe that's why.

Funny you should mention funding. They do not get any state funds, they rely upon donations to get it done. The three big contributors that he mentioned were Pheasants Forever, MDHA and Gander Mtn. He also said Terry Steinbach inquired about making a donation. I have heard Terry is a great guy on more than one occasion. So if you are serious about contributing, I am sure they are in need. They have committed to two more dogs currently.

I will see if I can track down a contact to send a donation to and post it on here when I do. Thanks!!

I have been checked by CO and his pal. He did the same thing you said before about huntin em up. The whole time he checked out guns and ammo the dog did his thing looking around.

      I have a Weboost cellular amplifier at Wakemup Bay. It increases the signal from 1 bar or less to 3-4 bars BUT there is more to the story than bars. For data (like streaming video) I get faster data speeds WITHOUT using my booster. The reason as I understand it is that cellular data transmits and receives on multiple channels simultaneously (its called Multi-In-Multi-Out or MIMO.) Most boosters only amplify a single channel at a time. While the phone shows a good signal from the booster it can actually reduce the data speeds that are available with MIMO transmissions. A booster can improve your voice communications while diminishing your data speeds. You might want to look at the Mobile Internet Resource Center on YouTube for a better explanation.

      Where are the opener fish pictures?
    • TrueNorth
      All of us who couldn't be there for opener would love to hear how the fishing was....😉

      57 in Black Bay and 44 in Niles Bay today.  The lake is changing by the day and the fishing reflects it.

      So sorry, wish I could boat over to help. I think we will wait an extra week to head north.  Prayers for a good resolution.

      Good morning Mtnman. Yes, the whole rainy lake watershed is under a flood warning. Water is as high as it was back in 2014. Forecast is that is should peak around May 20. All the ice went out last week with all the wind and rain we had. My dock didn’t make it though. Ice blew in and lift the whole thing, crib and all. Mother Nature…adds another project once the water is warm enough to work in. This week looks a little drier…I hope! Safe travels when you do head North.

      The water was over 22 at the very south end of Mud and the overflow pond. I took that route to get to the cabin, I just moved the signs and drove through, saw a couple carp sunbathing on the warm road. 😂
