Game Check

The North Dakota Game and Fish Department’s law enforcement division conducts game and fish check stations in an effort to ensure hunter and angler compliance with state laws and regulations.

Robert Timian, enforcement chief, said a few have already been conducted, and others will continue throughout the fall. “We will be manning checkpoints during deer season, and through waterfowl and pheasant season,” he said.

Hunters should double-check the regulations to make sure they are doing everything legal, especially proper identification and procedures for transporting game, and knowing the daily and possession limits.

“Check stations are an efficient way to detect violations and to gauge compliance,” Timian said. “In general, the comments we receive are positive, and the vast majority are supportive of these activities.”
