DNR Looking for Underaged Drinkers

The DNR wants to make sure young people are catching fish, and not a snoot-full during the ice fishing season.

A grant from the Minnesota Institute of Public Health will enable conservation officers with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources  to focus on illegal underage alcohol consumption that occurs in the outdoor recreation arena.

Conservation officers have routinely encountered underage consumption violations when conducting routine angling license checks on the ice. During the approaching holiday season, local conservation officers will be working throughout the Brainerd lakes area and focusing on those areas that have had issues of illegal underage consumption violations in the past.

The Minnesota Institute of Public Health provided the alternative alcohol enforcement funding through the “Enforcing Underage Drinking Laws Program” of the Minnesota Department of Public Safety.
