Will a fishing without a license citation show up on a background check?

Also, will a fishing without a license citation be grounds for a bench warrant with the sheriffs office if not paid? Does a fishing without a license citation get dropped after a certain amount of years whether taken care of or not? Will a fishing without a license citation prevent one from obtaining a fishing or hunting license in the future?

Answer

Yes, a citation for fishing without a license would show up on a background check of any Fish and Game violations.
