Typically in North Carolina, pleading guilty to a wildlife violation results in a fine and court costs. However, people do not realize than in addition, most wildlife violations cause a revocation of your North Carolina hunting or fishing license for a period of one year.
In most cases where people are not represented by an attorney, the revocation is not realized until they go to court, and sometimes, even after they have pleaded guilty.
Illegal baiting and hunting after hours are some of the more common wildlife violations that can result in serious consequences, including, not only the loss of your hunting license but also the seizure of a vehicle or a weapon. It is advisable to never plead guilty to a wildlife violation without consulting with an attorney.
