ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources plans to auction a collection of hunting and fishing equipment it confiscated for serious game violations.

The DNR says the sale involves hundreds of items, including guns, bows, fishing rods and reels, spears, tree stands and ice augers. The agency will hold the sale at Hiller Auction Service in Zimmerman on Saturday, April 28.

The DNR says more than 300 guns will be sold. Anyone purchasing a firearm will have to pass a background check. All equipment is being sold as is and cannot be returned.

The equipment can be inspected the day before, April 27, and at 8 a.m. on auction day. Photos of the items are on the website

    LOL. Not too many really nice guns there, but I noticed that the DNR confiscated a Daisy pellet gun. SERIOUSLY? A PELLET gun?

    Steal it, sell it, profit from it.

    Give it back.

    These people who buy stuff stolen from the fish police must be crazy!

    Nice Picture witht he story … A pile of revolvers … I bet you won’t find more than 5 there. Those will basically be JUNK, all the good “confiscated” pistols and revolvers have been picked though by the wardens and then “lost” in the system. Same with any decent long guns.
