Jan. 29
• At 6:04 p.m. a man came to the sheriff’s office looking to report an odd fly-fishing encounter. He stated he had been approached by another man while fishing. The man said he was on private property, so the fisherman went up the creek roughly 1,000 feet away from the individual. He then heard a gunshot, and felt he had possibly been shot at. He also claimed to have footage of the man who had warned him poaching a buck. At 6:41 p.m. a deputy made contact with the second man, who stated he had approached the fisherman because he was out of the water and so was trespassing.

Jan. 31
• At 4:39 p.m. a fire chief reported one of their vehicles had hit a fuel tank, which was now leaking fuel. He asked if another fire department could come and check the scene for safety. At 4:53 p.m. the second party arrived and reported the tank was no longer leaking fuel.
