(Aitkin, MN) — Safety in the woods and holiday safety took up much of the focus for our monthly chat with Aitkin County Sheriff Dan Guida with winter weather taking more of a presence going into December.

Sheriff Guida first spoke about people trying to swindle money from others during the holiday season.

With hunting still occurring and now winter weather playing a factor in tracking your whereabouts, always call 9-1-1 for assistance if you’re lost.

If you are unable to get out to hunt, the Sheriff’s Office also has a list to pick up deer roadkill.

Cold overnights for the past month also have some anglers chomping at the bit to get out ice fishing, but good ice thickness is still a ways away.

Sheriff Guida also talked about getting seasonal residents signed up for their home check program to keep tabs on homes during the upcoming cold winter months.

Sheriff Guida also went on to talk more about volunteer help at the Aitkin County Jail and stop arm violations with our full conversation here:
