Fishing license? Who needs fishing license? I have not had my fishing license checked by a conservation officer in over 5 years. :roll_eyes: this year will be my 6th year! When was the last time you had your license checked? Did you have your license with you or not? Were you fined or just warned? Do you really know where the money goes? Should a conservation officer be armed with a deadly weapon? Is a larger fine needed or do away with the fishing license all together? Are conservation officers really doing what they are supposed to be?
