    I don't know if some of you read this or not but it is interesting stuff. On KDWP web page they have exerts of entries from the conservation officers log book. They update it about every week to once a month depending on how busy the Co's have been. It gives you some insight into what the CO's deal with on a daily basis and some of the frustration they have when their hands are tied on certain things. Like county attorney's dropping most of the charges that a CO files and judges giving slaps on the hand for serious infractions. That happens a lot. During deer season it gets really good and is updated about every week.

    Check it out if you havn't already. http://www.kdwp.state.ks.us/news/Other-Services/Law-Enforcement/Officer's-Logbook

    I havent seen it, good find.
    Its definately a hard job and I give them alot of credit. I just wish there were more.

    Some of them are kinda funny:

    Managed to check a couple of fishermen and stopped by the city lake just in time to respond to a vehicle that had just sunk. Kids racing around a mud trail lost control and sunk their KIA. Vehicle could not be seen from shore, local “diver” came out wearing only a pair of swimming trunks and a snorkel with a rope around his waist attempted to locate the vehicle. I advised him the water was still very cold, against my wishes he made it into the water to about his waist when he proclaimed there was too much current for him. I advised him there was no current in the lake, figured he didn’t want to admit that trying to dive in 55-60 degree water wasn’t the best idea. :smile2::smile2:

    Refereed a dispute between fishermen on shore and fisherman on boats. 9,600 surface acres of water and they still have argue over the same acre.:smile2:

    High water has activity up on the rivers. Been writing high number of tickets and warnings. Nobody seems to be buying licenses. Had 3 H/M take off from Arkansas River outlet with stringer of flatheads and no poles. Tried to catch up to them after they exited park in their truck. Thanks to people failing to pull over for red/ blue lights they got away. :sad2::angry:

    Be careful out there Jim.

    Assisted in rescue of a 10 year old that fell from cliffs at Wakefield into Milford Lake, a tumble and fall of over 80 feet.

    I hope he is alright. Didnt say recovery so I am assuming he survived. Thats a LONG tumble and fall.

    I was just talking to CJ about that the day we were out there. I said, " I wonder if some dumbass thought this would be deep enough to cliff dive?" I guess some fell on accident. I find it very hard to believe that someone could live through that. :embarassed:
