DWR plans administrative checkpoints

Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints

The Division of Wildlife Resources (DWR) is planning a number of administrative checkpoints this summer and fall. Checkpoints, once called roadblocks, provide a means to contact people along the state’s transportation arteries. Anglers and hunters can expect to encounter one or more of these checkpoints as they fish and hunt.

Checkpoints provide an opportunity for conservation officers to monitor compliance with fish and game rules and to interact with the public to answer questions and offer advice about fishing and hunting opportunities. At the same time, biologists can collect information, which helps them manage the resource more effectively.

Checkpoints will be conducted on a variety of highways and roads throughout the state. It is the responsibility of the DWR to protect and conserve the state’s wildlife. By curbing poaching, over-limits, and other unlawful activity, the DWR is able to better fulfill its mission to the wildlife resource and general public.
