Should non-residents have equal rights...

I will clarify. Taulman was not cited for any aircraft violations that we can ascertain. Some of his employees and clients were cited. As for the citation he received in Arizona's Unit 10, the WM would not give any specifics, for obvious reasons. I got the impression it was a minor infraction ,such as shooting across a road. In situations like this, the perpetrator is simply fined for the violation ,and does not lose their license or right to hunt.

Here in MT he would have gone before the F&G commision to see if he was going to loose his liscence,he probably would have.

Yeah, here in Colorado the DOW is occassionally (though, not always) a bit lenient with individual hunters who commit minor, technical violations. My impression, though, is that they expect the professional guides and outfitters to know better, and those guys will lose their licenses to do business pretty quickly for pretty much anything.

This, I believe, is as it should be.

They will use any excuse avaliable to revoke an outfitters liscence here in MT,the F&G dont like them at all.They hate to see anyone besides themselves profit from the wildlife of the state.

Due to the Montoya vs. Schroufe lawsuit (USO v Arizona), many DOW and G&FD's are opposed to outfitters purely from the hatred envoked upon wildlife agencies as a result of the USO lawsuit.

I don't think anyone should lose their rights to hunt or guide for a simple infraction, but again, the bill recently passed by Congress and signed by the President, will place laws governing all facets of huting and fishy squarely in the hands of those game agencies.
