Hunting and fishing in the great outdoors is a way of life for many.  Don’t let your rights go unprotected because of wildlife violations which can result in extensive fines, jail, and the loss of your hunting and fishing privileges.

If you are a seasoned hunter/fisher or even a novice and just starting out, it is imperative that you familiarize yourself with the laws and regulations for the sport or hunting/fishing/outdoor activity that you engage in.  This helps to protect yourself from prosecution and to assist in the preservation of these species for everyone to enjoy. It is important to know the specific rules and regulations pertaining to the species of animal you are hunting or fishing. Some examples of such rules and regulations can refer to the size, age, sex, time of season, device or method allowed to catch the species, amount you can harvest, protected lands/bodies of water, and restrictions on sub species or protected species.

Did you know that Fish and Game Wardens, Conservation Officers, and other Wildlife Officers have very powerful allowances for search and seizure without a warrant? Your license, rod/reel, gun, other equipment including vehicles, boats, airplanes and other assets can be seized and forfeited to the Federal or State Government for violating the rules and regulations. You can even face fines of thousands of dollars for just catching a few fish out of season!

Most people who find themselves before the courts charged with these offences go “self represented”. It is important to know your rights and responsibilities. If you find yourself charged with an offence HFC attorneys can assist you and help you to make informed legal decisions on how to best defend yourself against real or perceived charges.
