What Are Poaching Violations?
The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources (DWR) is serious about cracking down on fish and game violations such as poaching. You may have been accused of poaching under one or more of the following circumstances:
- You shot an animal that you were not licensed to shoot.
- You shot more than your allotment of deer or elk.
- You shot an animal in an area where hunting was not allowed, such as in the city or any restricted area.
The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources is committed to holding accountable people who hunt against regulations established by law to control animal populations. People who contact our law firm for help often state that they were not aware of the laws that they allegedly broke — or do not believe that they did anything wrong. The experienced attorneys at the law offices of Greg Smith and Associates, Criminal Law Attorneys, are here to counsel and represent you in the face of poaching charges.
The Consequences Of A Fish And Game Violation
Even if you believe you are innocent, you cannot afford to simply ignore charges that the DWR has filed against you. Penalties for poaching and other serious fish and game violations can be severe, such as:
- Jail time
- Forfeiture of rifles used in poaching
- Temporary or permanent loss of a hunting license (loss of hunting privileges)
