Warden Blotter - September 28, 2012

Ashland, Woodruff and Racine-Kenosha warden teams

Ashland team

Warden Jill Schartner of Drummond spent four days at the Wisconsin State Fair in Milwaukee this month and assisted at the NASP tent where she and several bow instructors taught people how to shoot a bow and arrow.

During the month of August, Warden Schartner organized the 3rd Annual 2012 Drummond Learn to Bear Hunt program which takes place in Southern Bayfield County. Schartner works with more than 30 mentors (made up of local hunters) from her area and three wardens who helped provide bear hunting experience to 13 persons with very little bear hunting knowledge. This year during the training weekend 12 of the 13 people actually harvested a bear.

Warden Egstad along with the US Coast Guard, National Park Service, Ashland Sheriff’s Department, and GLIFWC wardens responded to a call on Lake Superior by Long Island for a swimmer who had not surfaced. The drowning victim recovered.

Woodruff team

Wardens Mike Sealander of St. Germain, Rich Thole of Boulder Junction, and Tim Price of Eagle River held a learn-to-bear hunt event in Vilas County in partnership with the DePere area National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP). All three hunters harvested bear.

Wardens Brad Dahlquist of Crandon and Kelly Crotty of Florence participated in a “National Law Enforcement Night Out” event in Crandon at the Forest County Sheriff’s Department. The wardens ran a youth archery station for kids.

Recreational Safety Warden Jeff Dauterman and Woodruff team wardens hosted an appreciation banquet for safety instructors in the Oneida and Vilas County area. all-terrain vehicle, snowmobile, hunter, boating and trapper education instructors volunteered their time.

Warden Rich Thole, Boulder Junction, contacted two subjects baiting bears without licenses. Thole also found three illegal tree stands placed on the state property by another member of the party. One member cut live trees for shooting lanes and the stands were all placed over bear baits. Enforcement action was taken with all subject.

Warden Crotty participated in a mock school shooting emergency exercise at the Florence County High/Middle School. The drill was conducted to prepare law enforcement and emergency services personnel in the event of an actual incident.

Warden Crotty assisted the Florence County Sheriff’s Office in locating a subject that had reportedly made suicidal threats to a family member. Warden Crotty located the subject in a wooded area and assisted in taking the subject into protective custody.

Racine, Kenosha, Walworth County teams

Warden Randy Dunkel of Racine County assisted the Racine Sheriff’s Department with a case that started as a boat accident with a missing person. By the time the investigation was complete the missing person was found sleeping in some near shore bushes and no boat accident ever actually happened. Many hours were spent looking for the individual such as the Coast Guard helicopter, Coast Guard boat, Racine Sheriff’s Department and Wind Point Police Department.

Warden Mike Hirschboeck of Racine County received a complaint about an upset person who was in possession of an injured juvenile eagle. Hirschboeck contacted the individual and told him he would take possession of the eagle. Hirschboeck received the eagle and took it to a local rehabber.
