  • Utah Hunting and Fishing Violations Attorney
    Many hunting and fishing offenses are honest errors. However, ignorance of the law is not an excuse if you are accused of poaching or other violations of Utah wildlife regulations. With the potential for harsh penalties, including jail, confiscation of firearms, and loss of hunting privileges, you need experienced legal representation.

    The fish and game law firm of Greg S. Law handles all violations prosecuted by the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources throughout the state of Utah, including Salt Lake County, Davis County, Weber County, Utah County, Summit County, Weber County, and surrounding communities. Our mission is to uphold your rights and exhaust your defenses to limit any adverse consequences of the charges against you.

    If you are accused of poaching or other hunting offenses in the state of Utah, contact our Salt Lake City attorneys for a knowledgeable and vigorous defense. We can represent residents of other states charged with crimes in Utah.

    Aggressive Defense Against Utah Fish And Wildlife Violation Charges

    The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources is aggressive and sometimes overzealous in its efforts to stop poaching of big game, upland game, waterfowl, and fish. Unfortunately, that means that many hunters and anglers who are innocent or who unknowingly violate the law are prosecuted as poachers.

    We can defend anyone accused of:

    • Hunting or fishing without a license
    • Fishing on private land
    • Catching and keeping tagged fish
    • Exceeding your daily fishing limits
    • Possessing a prohibited fish
    • Taking big game without a permit or tag
    • Taking game out of season
    • Exceeding allotments or bag limits
    • Baiting or shining deer or elk
    • Hunting outside of a designated zone
    • Trespassing on private or restricted government lands
    • Hunting outside of boundary maps
    • Shooting and firearms violations
    • Other hunting violations

    Harsh Penalties For Utah Hunting and Poaching Convictions

    The penalties for a poaching conviction may include jail time, fines and restitution, confiscation of hunting equipment, and the loss of hunting privileges. Utah is a member of the Interstate Wildlife Violator Compact, which means that you would be unable to obtain a hunting or fishing license in 40 other states.

    Utah’s mandatory minimum restitution for killing or possessing protected big game is staggering: $2,000 for pronghorn; $6,000 for bison, moose or mountain goats; up to $8,000 for deer or elk (trophy specimens); and $30,000 for bighorn sheep.
