Checkpoints Targeting Hunters
The Colorado Parks and Wildlife and other law enforcement agencies are setting up checkpoints along I-70 to check hunters tags and licenses. However, law enforcement is also utilizing these checks for DUI drivers, and to find evidence of poaching, party-hunting, and take over the limit violations.
Currently there are eight agencies that are participating in this type of check points, Colorado Parks & Wildlife, Colorado State Patrol, Clear Creek Sheriff’s Office, US Fish and Wildlife Services, US Forest Services, Utah Division of Wildlife Resources, Wyoming Game and Fish Department and Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks and Tourism.
These DOW Checkpoints are a violation of the 4th Endearment of the U.S. Constitution. The only Checkpoints authorized by teh U.S. Supreme Court under the 4th Amendment is for:
