Game Conservation

To conserve wildlife for future generations to enjoy, wildlife management laws were passed. These laws allow game to flourish by:

  • Establishing hunting seasons that limit harvesting and avoid nesting and mating seasons.
  • Limiting hunting methods and equipment.
  • Setting “bag” limits on the number of animals that can be taken.
  • Establishing check stations and game tag requirements to enforce the laws.

Safety, Opportunity, and Funding

In addition to ensuring the availability of game for future generations, hunting laws:

  • Establish safety guidelines for hunting that protect both hunters and non-hunters.
  • Offer equal opportunity for all hunters, whether they use modern firearms, muzzleloaders, or bows.
  • Ensure adequate funding for wildlife programs by collecting license fees, which annually raises millions of dollars.
