Fish & Wildlife Offenses

Washington state's wealth of natural resources make it an ideal place for outdoor enthusiasts - hunters and fishermen in particular. Unfortunately, the rules and regulations governing these persons' activities can be confusing and complex.

As a long-time Wenatchee area lawyer, I have provided strong counsel to numerous hunters and fishermen accused of intentionally or unwittingly violating fish and game laws, including:

  • Fishing and hunting out of season
  • Fishing and hunting without a valid license or permit
  • Fishing limit violations (overfishing)
  • Hunting bag limit violations
  • Wildlife waste
  • Trespassing or other land violations
