Game Wardens Conduct ANS Compliance Checkpoints


The North Dakota Game and Fish Department’s law enforcement division recently conducted check stations on boats coming into the state in an effort to ensure compliance with aquatic nuisance species laws and regulations.

Robert Timian, enforcement chief, said check stations on Interstate 94 and U.S. Highway 2 revealed the majority of hunters and anglers are keeping their equipment free of unwanted species.

“Our main focus was directed toward duck hunters trailering boats,” Timian said. “All total, there were less than a handful of individuals with minor violations.”

Wardens not only examined boats, but thoroughly inspected hunting and fishing gear.

“It was a good educational reminder for anyone trailering boats that not only do you have to abide by ANS rules during peak fishing and boating months, but later in the year as well,” Timian said.
