What do I do if I receive a Kansas Hunting Violation or Ticket from a Kansas Game Warden?  

You need to realize you have options.  You may pay the officer in the field, or you may mail in a payment later that day.  However, you should consult with a dedicated hunting violation attorney about your options and whether you have any defenses.  You could have more options than you know and having a helpful guide in your corner will put your mind at ease.

Kansas has incredible hunting opportunities from big game, to waterfowl, to upland.  A trip to the Wheat State can be soured by a hunting violation or ticket, but consulting with an attorney about your options can help get you back out on those golden plains and pursuing the game of your choice.

Do I need to go to court for a Kansas hunting violation?

Your ticket or summons will list a court date.  You may pay the violation before that or you may go to your court date and talk with the officer or prosecutor about your case.  It is important to remember that they do not represent you and have no obligation to help you.  You may wish to have an attorney come with you to help represent your best interests.  

Can I lose my hunting license if I get a hunting violation in Kansas?

It is a possibility, but not definite.  Kansas provides for loss of hunting privileges by statute but leaves a great deal of discretion to the judge when sentencing or the prosecutor during a sentencing hearing.  Before simply paying your Kansas hunting ticket or pleading guilty to the charges, you should consider consulting with an attorney who may be able to help reduce your charges and secure your hunting privileges.

9/21/2016: Favorable Plea Bargain in Hunting Case

PLEA BARGAIN FAVORABLE TO CLIENT REACHED IN WANTON WASTE CASE FOR KANSAS HUNTER IN NEW MEXICO.

CITATIONS RECEIVED FROM KANSAS DEPARTMENT OF WILDLIFE, PARKS, AND TOURISM OFFICERS CAN RANGE IN SEVERITY FROM MISDEMEANORS TO FELONIES.  

Each ticket received should be carefully considered before just paying the fine and pleading guilty.  Often individuals have certain defenses available that they have every right to have heard before a judge.  This is especially important considering that conviction of, or pleading guilty to hunting tickets carries not only fines, but can result in losing your hunting license for life. We all make mistakes and an attorney can help you through the process of making it right.  

IT IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED THAT YOU CONSULT WITH AN ATTORNEY ABOUT YOUR CASE BEFORE PAYING THE FINE STATED ON YOUR TICKET.  

Even if you simply take five minutes out of your day for a consultation and decide not to retain counsel, I guarantee you will feel better about your decision.  Through all of the cases of hunting or fishing violations that I have been hired on or consulted for, the one constant that I always hear is that my clients feel as though a weight has been lifted off their shoulders.  

You can find the Kansas hunting regulations here.  Additionally, Title 32 of the Kansas Statutes Annotated, found here, deals with the penalties and definitions for hunting and fishing violations under state law.
