National Wildlife Refuges provide excellent opportunities for sportsmen


to pursue waterfowl, big game, furbearers, and much more. Hunting is a
popular public activity on refuge land and a practical means of
maintaining optimal wildlife populations.

The National Wildlife Refuge System Administration Act of 1966


empowered the Fish and Wildlife Service to open refuges to hunting
when compatible with the purposes for which the refuges were
established. In 1997, National Wildlife Refuge System Improvement Act
went a step further. It ensures that refuges are managed for wildlife
conservation and that hunting and fishing are priority public uses on
refuge units.

The current charges against Cortez were filed Jan. 21 following an


investigation by Department of Game and Fish officers that included
three search warrants that turned up evidence alleging that Cortez
possessed numerous game animal parts but no licenses or carcass tags to
show legal ownership. A charge of tampering with evidence was filed
after officers rappelled into the Rio Grande Gorge and recovered heads
and carcasses of 12 deer and five elk.

Because of his earlier convictions, Cortez could face substantial


enhanced criminal penalties. Many of the confiscated deer were trophy
size, which subject him to possible enhanced civil penalties to reimburse
the state for the loss of valuable game animals.

The Department of Game and Fish encourages anyone with information


about wildlife crimes to call Operation Game Thief toll-free at (800) 432-
