Spring is here, but “bad guys” don’t take time off to celebrate the change of seasons.

Thankfully, neither do Georgia’s Department of Natural Resources’ Law Enforcement Division Rangers.  They’re there when we need them most … and they’re there when lawbreakers wish they weren’t.

The latest violations in the Law Enforcement Report include:

  • Illegal artifact collection and target shooting in an unauthorized area – Paulding County
  • Hunting out of season, hunting with an unplugged shotgun – Worth County
  • Hunting big game (turkey) over bait – Cherokee County
  • Additional hunting, fishing and boating violation citations – several counties

The Wildlife Resource Division protects Georgia’s wildlife by enforcing laws, rules and regulations pertaining to:

  • game and nongame animals
  • threatened and endangered plants and animals
  • exotic animals
  • boating safety
  • litter and waste control
  • and other natural resource issues.

We appreciate DNR’s efforts to keep the wild outdoors as tame as possible.
