Hunters Caught And Cited

November 21, 2011

From WOWT.com

Seven area hunters have been cited for hunting with the aid of an artificial

The citations were the result of a joint effort by the Nebraska Game and
Parks Commission and the Nebraska State Patrol (NSP) to catch spotlighters
in the St. Paul area over the weekend.

An NSP airplane using heat-detecting equipment discovered individuals in
three vehicles and guided five Game and Parks conservation officers on the
ground from 8:30 p.m. Nov. 18 until 12:30 a.m. Nov. 19.

Two of the 7 individual cited also were cited for no fur harvest permits,
one for failure to tag his traps, and one for liquidated damages on a
raccoon. More than $2,000 in fines was assessed, in addition to liquidated
damages of $25 for the raccoon.

Jerry Pecha, a Game and Parks law enforcement supervisor, said the project
was carried out during the November firearm deer season to increase the
possibility of catching deer spot-lighters in response to many complaints in
the area.
