New probe into Ohio wildlife licenses



Published: Tue, April 20, 2010 @ 3:46 p.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — The state watchdog is investigating allegations that wildlife officers broke the law by providing colleagues from other states with Ohio fishing licenses at a discount.

The probe by the Ohio Inspector General follows similar allegations involving a hunting license that has led to felony charges against the wildlife division’s top administrators.

An Associated Press review of state records found two cases in 2007 in which wildlife officers let out-of-state officers use Ohio addresses for fishing licenses, saving them $21 in each case.

The inspector general’s office confirms it is investigating the allegations involving the fishing licenses.

I think that what they did is wrong. I mean they won't even give veterens discounts on there licenses, but they will let there out of state colleagues to use addresses to get a discount. In Louisiana they have the up most respect for there vets, they only make you pay $5 for your hunting and fishing license combined.
