Wildlife Crimes

Taggart Howard worked closely with the Colorado Division of Wildlife (“CDOW”) as a prosecutor.  Since entering private practice, Mr. Howard has worked on several large wildlife cases involving multiple felony charges at both the State and Federal level. 

Mr. Howard defends those charged with “Title 33” violations including the following:

  • Failing To Wear Florescent Orange
  • Shooting From A Public Road
  • Hunting Under The Influence
  • Hunting With Artificial Light
  • Illegal Sale Of Wildlife
  • Waste Of Edible Game
  • Willful Destruction Of Wildlife
  • Illegal Outfitting
  • Illegal Hunt
  • Illegal Taking
  • Illegal Possession
  • “Lacey Act” violations
  • CDOW Administrative Hearings - Hunting License Suspension

For example, if a hunter mistakenly shoots an elk on private property without permission, then has the elk transported over state lines (from Colorado to Texas for instance) for processing; that hunter can face a myriad of State and Federal charges.  Violation of the Lacey Act alone can result in civil penalties up to $10,000 per each violation or maximum criminal sanctions of $20,000 in fines and/or up to five years imprisonment.
