SALEM, OR -- A bipartisan proposal to crackdown on illegal poaching in Oregon received its first public hearing, Thursday. The House Agriculture and natural resources committee discussed the bill drafted by House Republican Leader Mike Mclane (R-Powell Butte).

 

The bill would provide free hunting tags to those who report a violation of a wildlife law, if that information leads to successful prosecution. Under the bill, the free tag would be good for the year immediately following conviction of a poacher. Oregon's Department of Fish and Wildlife would run the program.
