A tip helps game wardens from the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks, and Tourism catch a poacher.

According to the agency, information from the public helped in the investigation. Citations were issued in Republic County.

Citations include:

  • taking furbearers out of season x 2
  • illegal method of taking (use of artificial light) x 2
  • no furharvester license x 2
  • no furharvester education x 2

Furhavester season opens November 18th.

The state has a hunter involved program to help fight poachers like this. Operation Game Thief is a program that provides a toll-free number for anyone witnessing wildlife-related violations to call immediately and make a report. All calls received are immediately relayed to the natural resource officer nearest the violation. The line is available anytime of day or night, every day of the year, and callers may remain anonymous. The number to call is 1-877-426-3843.

Is this what republicans mean by too much government regulation. Davy Crockett killed what he wanted to, when he wanted to. Nor did he suffer from that socialistic school learnin’ and, as a result, never figured out how to spell “kilt hisself a bar”.
