The B.C. Conservation Service did a number of road checks in the Revelstoke area over the long weekend, Oct. 9-11, leading to a number of charges.
Conservation officers handed out seven tickets to individuals in the area.
Three of the tickets were to those in violation of hunting in a motor vehicle closure, which prohibits the use of operation of a motor vehicle, including an electric bicycle, for the purpose of hunting.
One ticket was handed out to an individual who failed to stop and provide information to a conservation officer.
Other violations included having a loaded firearm in a vehicle, improper cancellation of a species licence and transporting fish contrary to regulation.
The Conservation Officer Service set up a number of road checks and patrols across the province over the Thanksgiving long weekend in order to regulate the larger number of individuals hunting over the holiday.
A road check on Highway 3 near Princeton also resulted in the uncovering of multiple violations.
