PRESS RELEASE

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


BAG LIMITS AND AMENDMENTS TO THE
ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION ACT

From the office of the San Andreas Parks
Department

2/2/2024


The state of San Andreas has introduced new legislation that has made amendments to H.R. 293 – The Environmental Protection Act regarding our hunters and fishers, you can reference H.R. 302 – Amendments to the Environmental Protection Act to read about the changes more in-depth. Recently the state has merged our hunting licenses with the newly introduced fishing licenses, which are now referred to as ‘Fish and Game License’. If you had a hunting license prior to this change, you automatically were issued the new Fish and Game license, just make sure you read up on the new fishing regulations in place which can be found on our website at SAStateParks.org.

The licensing changes are not the only new developments, as the state has introduced bag limits to both fishing and hunting. This new legislation limits hunters to having 60 meat and 15 pelts in their possession at any given time, with scraps exempt from this amount. Fishers are legally allowed to possess 80 fish at any given time. Possession includes being stored in vehicles as well as different containers such as bags and coolers.

With these changes it is important to mention that ‘Rangers shall maintain the right to search any persons, any container or receptacle that could be used to contain fish, meat, or pelts, including vehicles, boats, game bags, coolers, etc. This shall only be used in areas under Ranger jurisdiction for those engaged in fishing or hunting and is acceptable due to the fact that hunting and fishing are regulated activities that require government licensing.’

Please hunt and fish responsibly. If you have any questions feel free to reach out to the DOJ or the SAPD. Thank you.
