A roadside game checkpoint conducted by authorities in southeast North Dakota turned up a handful of hunting violations.
The checkpoint was set up on Highway 13, west of Lamoure Sunday and Monday morning.
Corey Erck, Regional Supervisor for the Game & Fish Department tells KFGO News most of the citations were for transporting birds without the proper identification.
Erck says this wasn't the first checkpoint and it won't be the last and doesn't rate the checkpoints based on the number of tickets written out. He says it's used a deterrent, much the same as DUI checkpoints.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Lamoure County Sheriff's Department and the highway patrol assisted in the checkpoint.
