Violation Points 

Violation points are assigned to hunters convicted of fish and wildlife violations.  The accumulation of 18 points for violations within three years may result in the revocation of hunting and fishing privileges for one year. The accumulation of 30 points within five years may result in the loss of licenses and privileges for three years. Access to Commission-owned lands will be prohibited if hunting privileges are revoked as a result of violations. Boating violations are not considered toward revocation.

A hunter with 12 points is ineligible to apply for alligator, deer, turkey or elk permits. A conviction for selling wildlife may result in lifetime revocation of hunting and fishing licenses. 

Double points are assessed for: 

  • Adults 21 or older convicted of committing a violation while accompanying a youth under 16;
  • Violations committed by a Guide License holder;
  • Violations committed in a trout catch-and-release area, and
  • Bass-related violations on lakes Monticello, Lower White Oak, Columbia, SWEPCO, Pickthorne and Austell.
