Large Lake of the Woods walleye bust adds twist to deer season opener for DNR officers in Baudette


November 9, 2021

Here is the weekly report from Department of Natural Resources conservation officers in northwest Minnesota and adjacent areas of northern Minnesota for Monday, Nov. 8:

District 1 - Baudette area

CO Ben Huener (Roseau) prepared for and worked the Firearms Deer opener in the Roseau and Lake of the Woods County areas. Hunter success varied, with more deer generally being seen in the agricultural areas. Violations for the week include shining, hunting with the aid of bait, wanton waste of a deer, fail to register deer and assistance was given to CO Sura with a large over limit of walleyes and saugers.

CO Corey Sura (Baudette East) spent the weekend working a Minnesota unofficial holiday – firearms deer season! Although the weather was excellent, the hunting success was relatively slow for an opening weekend. However, this was not the case for the fishing on Lake of the Woods. Sura decided to take a quick break from the deer hunting action to check a few anglers. In doing so, he contacted a group of four anglers who were found to be 48 walleye/sauger over their possession limit. The individuals will be charged for possessing over the limit of walleye/sauger, along with restitution for the 48 fish. Other violations handled over the weekend include hunting deer with aid/use of bait and transporting loaded firearms in a motor vehicle.
