    The past year i have been game warden bait i guess. I have been checked by them 8 times in the past year fishing and hunting. This year 4 times already. I guess i just look like an outlaw to them. Ive had some close calls but no tickets. Got checked last sunday was the last time. Theyr after me!!! :004:

    Austin that is part of living in Illinois. Stay up on the law changes and make sure you abide by them. If you do this you will never have to look over your sholder. It's that bad in So. Illinois also.:lol: :big_smile:

    I don't mind being checked, the people on the lake have better manners when they are around.

    I've gotten checked once in my 51 years, and then he wasn't looking for me. He was sneaking up on the guy across the resevoir and scared the crap out of me and my son.
    No worries if your not doing anything wrong.

    If you are being checked that much, hopefully they are checking everyone else. Doing so would go a LONG way in helping our waterways.

    That is true, evey time ive been checked on the water they have always been polite. But maybe this one guy was polite because he almost made me fall in the water. I was standing on the front deck of my boat running the trolling motor and this warden drove up to me real fast and turned quickly. He sent a big wave to the front of my boat and i almost fell off. :lol:

    When I see the G.W. I offer to let them see my F.L & ID. I see no reason to make them go thru the trouble of asking for my F.L.. Most of the time they will think me for offering and are greatful for me trying to make their job a bit easier on them.

    I have never been checked fishing, but once deer hunting checking for loaded guns in the truck, he was nice and we were legal.

    I get checked alot also now. I am on a military post tho and those guys are pretty ruthless. One of them knows me well and loves catfishing and varment hunting the same as I do so when he is out making his rounds at the local ponds or in the hunting areas he usually stops and BS's with me for a while. Tells me where the coyotes are running and where all the fish are biteing at. I am glad they are there. Keeps things calmed own around the ponds. On the lake or river I rarely ever see a game warden tho.

    Got checked at a popular fishing spot three times in two days, once each day by the same warden. I did find out you must have your boat registration in the boat not in the vehicle. Really nice guys I imagine partly because I was doing nothing illegal. Luck
