Fall brings with it something for everyone in the field from the angler to the hunter.  Just a few recent sessions of shooting the bull tell me that autumn is for the youngest of outdoorsman just learning the games to those of us more seasoned with our eyes focused dead ahead on for example, the whitetail rut. James Wallace captured this great buck on trail camera during summer scouting. James Wallace, my nephew-in-law (is there such a ...

Warden Blotter: Green Bay warden team

December 11, 2012

By: Bureau of Law Enforcement

Green Bay-area warden team

Regional Warden Byron Goetsch of Green Bay responded to the report of individuals chasing deer in a field at night with an ATV. It is unlawful to harass wildlife in this manner was important that this landowner took the time to report this illegal activity.

Sturgeon Bay

Warden Chris Kratcha of Door County assisted the Door County Sheriff’s Office (DCSO) with an investigation of a rural Kolberg home struck by a bullet on opening day, 11-17-2012. The family was home at the time, but no persons were injured. The bullet struck the living room window of the home, breaking through two panes of glass and coming to rest on the window sill. A suspect hunter was contacted and a firearm was seized as evidence. The DCSO is leading the investigation and the case will ultimately be forwarded to the District Attorney’s Office.

Manitowoc

Wardens Ryan Volenberg and Robert Stroess of Manitowoc observed a vehicle parked in the ditch along a Voluntary Public Access property and the vehicle had North Dakota license plates. The owner was known to the wardens as they had arrested him four years earlier after he and a companion had poached three deer at night with the use of a spotlight. The owner had just come off of revocation of his hunting licenses. They contacted him while he was hunting and he said he had purchased the vehicle in North Dakota, and therefore he registered it in North Dakota. The wardens suspected there may be some residency license fraud violations and asked him about his license purchases. He said he did not live in North Dakota and hadn’t bought any licenses there. The wardens later checked with North Dakota and he had purchased licenses in both North Dakota and Wisconsin as a resident. Charges are pending for license fraud.

Warden Robert Stroess of Manitowoc investigated a complaint regarding a felon who had been purchasing gun deer hunting licenses. The investigation showed the suspect had been gun-deer hunting for years, including the 2012 gun deer season. A check through the dispatch center showed he had an active warrant for a City of Manitowoc ordinance violation, so a deputy sheriff responded and arrested him. Charges are pending.

Wardens Stroess and Volenberg of Manitowoc investigated a complaint east of Mishicot of a person shooting at a buck from the roadway. The wardens and a deputy sheriff responded, located the suspects and cited the shooter for hunting from the road.

Warden Stroess of Manitowoc stopped on ATV being driven illegally on the roadway during the gun deer season near Menchalville. The operator was coming from deer hunting and was not very friendly, saying the road was an ATV route (which it was not). He had owned the ATV for seven years, had never updated the registration into his name, had never registered the ATV, was driving on the road, was driving in the wrong lane of traffic, and had a shotgun loaded with two slugs in the magazine. Enforcement action was taken.
