51. Maybe this will help keep him from poaching and lock him out of his current ranch

The commission acknowledged that without a better system, arrests were required because of the difficulty of collecting a judgment after an offender had left the state. The compact provided that better system. It worked both ways — Texans hunting or fishing in other states could also just receive a citation and settle it on or before the appearance date instead of going to straight to court. Under the compact’s terms, an accused violator who did not make an appearance to pay the fine or contest the charge could have his hunting or fishing license suspended. Under the terms of the compact, once a license is suspended in one state, it is suspended in all participating states.

So far, 37 states have joined the compact. Arkansas, Nebraska, both Carolinas, Virginia and Maine are in the process of joining. Only the New England states haven’t.

Out of 302,000 Texans who hunt or fish out of state, seven have had their licenses suspended for “failure to appear” in other compact states, according to Scott Vaca, TPWD assistant chief of wildlife enforcement, who supervises the compact in Texas. One had his license suspended because of nine violations for false information on license applications as well as hunting a mountain lion without a nonresident license. His hunting, fishing and trapping privileges are suspended until 2016 in all compact states.

Under the compact, if a Texas hunter has his license suspended in another state for a violation that is not against the law in Texas — like hunting deer over bait — Texas may still suspend the license.

The compact benefits sportsmen who honor their responsibilities. It has teeth for those who don’t.
