Hunting season is here and Dinosaur National Monument is reminding hunters of rules and regulations. According to Chief of Visitor Services Dan Johnson, hunting is not permitted in the Monument. “Although most of the monument boundary is well marked, hunters are responsible for ensuring they do not hunt within the monument...The Lacey Act and the Code of Federal Regulations strictly prohibits the killing or removal of any animal, living or dead, and any animal parts, including shed antlers from public lands within the Monument without authorization. Violators will be prosecuted and are subject to penalties including fines, jail, restitution, and the forfeiture of vehicles, equipment, and personal property associated with the violations.” Contact law enforcement park rangers or state wildlife officers if wounded wildlife run within the Monument borders. Hunters are allowed to transport wildlife taken lawfully outside the Monument through the Monument on park roads but must have a valid state hunting license and a displayed game tag where applicable. Anyone that observes illegal hunting activity within Dinosaur National Monument are asked to call 781-7700.
