Shooting from a vehicle or road is dangerous, and unethical. It casts a poor light upon hunters. Many of the citations issued to road hunters who violate game laws include spotlighting, trespassing, shooting from a motorized vehicle, shooting across the road and waste of game.
Anyone found guilty of shooting an artificial animal will lose their license, and face a fine up to $1,000 and a possible jail sentence of up to six months. There is also a $50 minimum restitution penalty for shooting an ASA to help maintain the decoys. One of the most effective tools for detecting illegal activity by hunters is the watchful eye of other outdoor enthusiasts. Anyone who suspects illegal activity regarding fish and wildlife is asked to call the Citizens Against Poaching hotline at 800-632-5999. Callers may remain anonymous and may receive a cash reward for information leading to a citation.
