Game and Fish Still Missing Guns

Posted: Updated:

A recent audit revealed the North Dakota Game and Fish Department failed to account for 100 of its 784 guns.

Watchdog.org says the agency still can't find 10 of them. The audit showed "44 significant findings, including issues with the handling, inventory, and storage of guns owned by the department."

The Game and Fish Department had been allowing volunteer hunter education instructors and others to borrow their guns without requiring any paperwork or acknowledging a receipt.

Other findings in the audit include allowing Game and Fish employees to use state vehicles for private use, excessive compensation for travel and meal expenses and failure to comply with state procurement laws.
