Fair warning

The Department of Game and Fish will conduct roadblocks throughout the state during spring and fall hunting seasons to collect harvest data and apprehend wildlife law violators.

Conservation officers are to also check for compliance with the registration requirements and safety provisions of the Off Highway Motor Vehicle Act, and drivers of vehicles hauling wood products will be asked to produce documentation as required by the Forestry Conservation Act.
