Area Wildlife Checkpoints Planned

KSAL StaffNovember 14, 2013

Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks, and Tourism law enforcement officers will conduct a wildlife checkpoint in Northcentral Kansas in mid-November. With upland bird, turkey, deer and waterfowl seasons underway, the checkpoint is intended to help enforce state and federal wildlife laws.

Officers will ask vehicle occupants if they have been hunting or are transporting wildlife. If they answer yes in either case, drivers will be directed to a check lane where natural resource officers will check for required licenses and permits, count the game and gather biological, harvest, and hunter success information. If violations of wildlife laws or other state laws are found, appropriate enforcement actions will be taken.

Travelers should not expect major delays from this checkpoint.

Additional wildlife checkpoints will occur around the state during the fall and winter hunting seasons.
