Just curious has any body herd of any serous baiting violations? And any big fines? I haven't herd a word around roscommon area, and only saw one DNR truck so far during the whole season. I am a electrician and have been very buys and a lot of traveling, and nobodys saying anything, was just wondering if they are really pushing this band seriously?

Know of an entire camp north of me in Hubbard Lake that all got fined. Was not a comfortable day from what I was told.

Here's an interesting tidbit from the District 3 section of the enforcement report: "COs Sidney Collins and Dan Liestenfeltz responded to a subject who self-reported accidentally shooting a cow elk during the firearm deer season. The subject thought it was a deer. The elk was donated to a food bank and charges have been requested for shooting an elk out of season without a tag." This was the first time I've heard of a cow elk being shot.

We are going to have to disagree on this one. He intentionally shot the cow elk, it was not an accidental discharge of a firearm. Hunter safety rule number one, Know your target and what’s beyond. If he read the hunting digest he knew ahead of time that the mandatory fine for shooting an elk without a license is $5K. It could have been worse the trial of a hunter who misidentified another hunter as a deer just reached its conclusion.

I agree. The accidental discharge phrase was in the quote of the report.
