Men Accused Of Poaching Doves

KSAL StaffSeptember 8, 2014

State wildlife officials are deciding what type of charges to file against four men who they say shot 209 doves in one day in Kansas.

The daily limit during hunting season in Kansas is 15 doves per hunter.

Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism officials say the men were stopped in rural Ellis County last Tuesday, the second day of dove season.

Wildlife department spokesman Dan Melson would not give the ages of the men, or say if they were Kansas residents.

State officials could ask federal wildlife officials to charge the men. If the men are found guilty of violating federal laws protecting migratory birds, they could face stiff fines and possible jail time.
