Five cited for not submitting hunt reports

Posted: May 15, 2014 - 11:09pm

Alaska Wildlife Troopers cited five Juneau residents this month for failing to return hunt permits to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, according to an online dispatch from troopers.

Those ticketed are: Abel Gomez, 30, for failing to return his 2013-2014 caribou permit hunt report; Destry D. Leitz, 20, for failing to return his 2013-2014 Juneau wetland permit hunt report; Mark P. Calvert, 41, for failing to return his 2013-2014 brown bear permit hunt report; David J. Scharen, 46, for failing to return his 2013-2014 Juneau wetlands permit hunt report; and Stephen D. Sabadin, 22, for failing to return his 2013-2014 Juneau wetlands permit hunt report, according to the dispatch.

Trooper Jon Streifel, who is in charge of the wildlife troopers’ Southeast detachment, said all the defendants were notified by Fish and Game multiple times before they were issued the $100 citations.

“Fish and Game takes quite a few steps to notify these people that they need to get their reports to them,” Streifel said in an interview Thursday.

Those ticketed can dispute the citations in court if they choose.

Fish and Game uses the hunt reports to determine game management. When people don’t turn the paperwork in on time, the agency requests law enforcement step in.

Streifel said they respond to such requests year-round. Wildlife troopers cited 34 people in Juneau last year for failing to return permit hunt reports.

Don't report on line

I have had lots of problems with ADF&G's online reporting system. I think I have been trying to use it for three years and have yet to see a year where I didn't have to go back and re-report something. Always print out the confirmation. Doing that has saved my bacon!

On the other hand ADF&G has been very good about alerting me after the fact that I supposedly didn't report one hunt or another. Thank you for that!
