MN: DNR outlines most common firearm deer hunting violations

October 18, 2012

From News.DNR.state.mn.us

Minnesota’s firearm deer gets underway Nov. 3. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) reminds hunters to follow the rules.
According to Col. Jim Konrad, DNR Enforcement Division director, in 2011 conservation officers issued 157 citations and 52 warnings for hunting over bait, while 93 citations and 24 warnings were issued for transporting an uncased/loaded firearm. Shooting from the road right-of-way at big game is also a top violation, with a five-year average of 68 citations and eight warnings each year. Failure to validate a tag, untagged game, and having no license round out the other top hunting violations for 2011.
Other common infractions include trespass, deer shining, failure to register game and license not in possession.
