I'm aspiring to become a DNR Conservation Officer in Michigan after I retire from the Air Force. So in my slow time at work, I'll frequently read some of their published bi-weekly reports for activities that the CO's have encountered. I always get a huge kick out of some of the ones like these.
You can check out some more here. Always some crazy ones that you'd think you'd only see in a movie.COs Steve Converse and Sam Koscinski conducted a marine patrol on the Big Manistee River targeting maritime safety equipment. The COs had numerous contacts and issued several tickets to canoe and kayak enthusiasts for not having PFDs with them. One subject was very adamant that he did not have or need a PFG and never would. Just after making that statement the kayaker accidentaly flipped his kayak throwing him into 51 degree water where be began gasping for air. The kayaker was unable to get back into his kayak and had to be rescued by the COs. Officers Converse and Koscinski were able to pull the subject into their patrol boat and took him to shore where they treated him for the onset of hypothermia. Once the subject was warmed up and out of danger, he was issued a ticket for not having a PFD.
