ND agency can't find 10 guns in hunting program

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) -- North Dakota's Game and Fish Department is unable to account for 10 guns that are missing from a volunteer hunter education program.

An audit of the agency in April found that 100 firearms provided to volunteer hunter education instructors were missing. Game and Fish was required to take an annual inventory of the guns but had not done so.

Agency spokesman Craig Bihrle says the department has 748 guns used for the program but can only account for 738 of them so far. He says game wardens have been working with volunteer hunting instructors to track the guns.

The audit also criticized the agency's misuse of public money and its ''noncompliance with laws, rules, and policies.''

Game and Fish regulates hunting, fishing and trapping, manages land and promotes conservation.
