"I have two agents for South Dakota and two for North Dakota," said Rich Grosz, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's law enforcement agent in charge for the Dakotas. "We don't have the resources to be in everybody's back pocket."
To fill in the gaps, Grosz said, Fish and Wildlife relies on state wardens from Game, Fish and Parks for information that could lead to undercover hunts. The local wardens in turn get help from hunters themselves through the Turn In Poachers (TIPS) hot line.
Undercover operations don't emerge as compliance checks, Grosz said. Before the government brings in out-of-state agents and pays thousands for a waterfowl hunt, there must be evidence of violations.
"The odds are slim," that a South Dakota lodge owner has been the target of an undercover hunt, Grosz said, but "if the budget is allowing and the intelligence is there, it's certainly possible."
A list of hunting operations or a licensure system that requires training for guides and lodge owners about regulations and emergency medical skills could help law enforcement by discouraging untrained hunters from taking the field, Grosz said.

Manipulation of agricultural crops may ... [cached]
Manipulation of agricultural crops may come in the form of rolling, burning, discing, flattening, mowing, brush-hogging or other similar actions, according to Rich Grosz, special agent with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in Bismarck, N.D.
Grosz explains that manipulation of agricultural crops before harvest increases the availability of grain and creates an unfair advantage to the hunter.He says agricultural crops include, but are not limited to wheat, corn, barley, oats, flax, beans, peas and other similar crops.
"Due to the extremely dry conditions in much of the Dakotas, many producers did not harvest a crop in fields they planted this year," notes Grosz, "but they may have plowed it under, or otherwise manipulated it.If so, those fields would be considered baited, and hunters would not be able to legally use them."Grosz says wheat and other small grain crops were especially impacted by heat and drought in the southern portions of North Dakota and much of South Dakota.
Grosz admits it may be hard for hunters to tell whether a field has been manipulated before being harvested.He recommends a close physical inspection of the field before hunting it.If that doesn't definitely rule out pre-harvest manipulation, hunters should go to the source."If hunters have a question about a field, they should find the landowner and ask what has been done," he suggests.

Richard Grosz, a US Fish and Wildlife Service agent, said in a court filing that 500,000 to 1 million birds are killed annually across the United States as the result of oilfield production.
In a sworn statement, Grosz said hawks, owls, ducks and other birds mistake the waste pits for water ponds. They become fouled with oil, and their feathers lose their ability to shed water, often causing the birds to become waterlogged and drown.
Birds that attempt to drink from the pits can fall in, and their steep, slippery slopes make it almost impossible for trapped wildlife to escape, he wrote.
