OFFICIALS SAY 71 GOT HUNTING LICENSES DESPITE FIREARMS BAN

FARGO, N.D. - Seventy-one people who are not allowed to have firearms, including felons and people on probation, got state hunting licenses last year.

Corey Schlinger, a Parole and Probation officer, said the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation used federal grant money to track down the people.

"We teamed up with North Dakota Game and Fish," he said. "It's obviously a concern for us if any of our offenders has a hunting license, because they're not supposed to have firearms."

Schlinger said many of the people applied for a hunting license before they were put on probation. However, he said authorities did seize a dozen firearms.

The cases remain under investigation. Schlinger said some violators could face felony charges.
