Hunting and Fishing Defense
With offices in Steamboat Springs and Denver, The Brown Law Office is available to help you address any hunting and fishing charges you may be facing. Attorney Sean Brown has been fishing and hunting most of his life. He has fished on the lakes in Kentucky, off the shores of Alaska, and hunted Moose and Caribou in Alaska. He knows that hunting and fishing violations are a serious matter.
Hunting violations are not limited to poaching or hunting or fishing without a license. Colorado has strict hunting and hunting laws and many people face penalties for offenses they did not know were illegal. Examples of some of these violations can include:
- Keeping a loaded weapons in a vehicle
- Hunting on private property without permission
- Waste of game
- Failure to tag
- Failure to leave evidence of animal’s sex
- Failure to obtain proper fishing or hunting license
Hunters may also accidentally kill waterfowl they did not realize was protected or hunt while believing their license is still valid. Or fisherman, may keep fish that they did not know needed to be released.
These offenses and others can limit your participation in a favorite outdoor sport and result in hefty fines. Should you be convicted of illegally selling wildlife or willfully destroying habitats, those are felonies and can limit your ability to find a job or good housing.
Many people pay their fines without realizing the additional impacts to admitting to hunting violations. If you face these violations, it is a good idea to talk to a hunting attorney in Steamboat before pleading to any charges.
The Brown Law Firm supports sportsman and helps you make informed decisions about hunting and game violations. Even if you committed the offense, we can discuss mitigating circumstances that could reduce your fine or hunting license suspension.
There are also situations where you may have followed the law but a game warden believed otherwise. Private property is not always clearly marked and you may have tagged your quarry only to have the tag come loose. We will work with you to create an ethical solid defense for you in these cases.
