For those who are not familar with Spoonbills, the eggs in the females are highly valuable and equally highly illegal to sell in most states. Because of the egg value, Spoonbills are a frequent target of poachers. It used to be real bad problem in Oklahoma, but seems to have gotten better lately in some areas. But in the past I have seen my share of people boating more fish then their limit, which I view as stealing from me, and the other fisherman of the state, not to mention making it harder for me on the next trip to catch a nice fish. So this year I have taken two steps to do my part, one fun and the other serious. For the fun one, at the Tulsa Boat Show while I was visiting the Game Warden booth, I bought their ultra-cool hat, which is the green in color with an outline of the state and says in big letters "Oklahoma Game Warden", and then in much smaller print below "official booster". It is a riot. I wear it sometimes and have people who have known me for years say "I didn't know you were a game warden", LOL. I should have fun wearing that around the ramp as we clean fish and see what others are bringing in. I expect at least one person will call me Sir when I ask if he caught anything For the serious part, today I programmed into my cell phone several of the game warden's cell phone numbers for the area where I'll be fishing. So for the 2 guys running the snag line that I saw a few years ago with about 8 fish in your boat, if I see you doing that again I am reporting it. For the guys who catch the big females and split them open onsite to claim the eggs and dump the rest of the fish into the lake, I am calling if I see you do it. I hope other BOC members do their part to protect their local fish and fisheries.
