Fish and Game Violations
We have represented clients charged with violating the Fish and Game laws in Montana. If you are convicted of these types of crimes, which could include hunting or fishing with a resident license when you are a non-resident, poaching, or even federal Lacey Act violations you can face the usual criminal penalties, as well as the mandatory suspension of your hunting privileges in Montana.
Montana is also a member of the “Interstate Wildlife Violators Compact” along with thirty-nine other states. This means if you are convicted of a Montana fish and game violation and your hunting and fishing privileges are suspended in Montana, the suspension is also recognized and enforced by the other thirty eight states.
