OH: Convicted Ohio wildlife violators
Excerpted from the popular hunting website - Buckmasters.com
Convicted Ohio wildlife violators pay the price nationally
From the Ohio Department of Natural Resources
-- Since Ohio became an Interstate Wildlife Violator Compact (IWVC)
member state on January 1, 2008, 146 violators have been entered into the
system by Ohio wildlife law enforcement officers. Ohio has also reviewed and
agreed to recognize over 6,500 suspensions entered in the database by 30
other member states.
In June of 2008, the first entries in the database by Ohio officials were
made. Wisconsin fishermen had taken twice the daily limit of walleye from
Lake Erie. Their suspensions were recognized in their home state, and one of
the men was caught fishing under revocation this past spring. He now has
another year added on to his suspension.
One person from Michigan was suspended in Ohio, then went to Florida on a
fishing trip and tried to buy a license and was denied. A Pennsylvania
resident was suspended in Montana, when he contacted the ODNR Division of
Wildlife to inquire about hunting here; he was told he cannot hunt in Ohio
until his suspension ends.
