Hunting Violations and Crimes in Oregon
If you have been charged with a hunting violation or crime in Oregon, we can help.
Oregon’s wildlife laws can be complex, and nearly all of the hunting and fishing violations in Oregon are “strict liability” offenses. This means that it doesn’t matter whether you intentionally did something, knowingly did something, recklessly did something, carelessly did something, negligently did something, or simply mistakenly did something. If you did it, and it’s against the law, you can be prosecuted.
The most common consequence of a conviction for any hunting violation is the loss of hunting rights for three years (36 months). This length of time is often non-negotiable and cannot be shortened. In some cases, it’s possible to avoid this hunting suspension altogether by negotiating with the prosecutor, but it’s often difficult.
