South Dakota is a hunter's paradise for deer, antelope and small game, and the state government has invested in their Game, Fish & Parks Department for enforcement of hunting laws.
Located in the Black Hills area, Kinney Law, pc, has experience defending hunters and fisherman against various alleged state and federal gaming violations, including property trespass, illegal hunting and trapping violations. Cited hunters need to be aware of civil penalties and mandatory jail time for certain violations.
If you have been cited for a statutory hunting violation, civil penalties for illegally hunted game may be imposed as well as a suspension of hunting privileges that may even transfer out of state. Certain violations bring jail time and hefty fines as well. Kinney Law, pc, can help you understand what you are up against as well as take the right steps to minimize any consequences.
Did You Receive A Citation?
If you receive a citation for violating one of South Dakota's hunting, fishing, or trapping laws, it is critical to comply with the terms and/or call a defense lawyer. If you fail to comply, you could end up losing your respective hunting, fishing, or trapping privileges in South Dakota and other compact states. If you are not a resident of South Dakota, the state's government will notify your local wildlife agency of your failure to comply and your home state may suspend your local license.
It is very important to take citations seriously rather than ignore them.
