Doing the right thing in the field begins with the knowledge from the regulations you pick up in the store, information you get off the computer, or the field officers you encounter in passing. I thank you all for the pat on the back, but you will have to excuse me for being humble. All I did is what I usually do. I make it a point to keep in contact with field officers, and use them as a reference when needed. They are a wealth of information, and almost all of them are good guys (and gals), and most of them hunt and fish, so they know the productive spots. Most of all, we as tax payers, pay their wages and they are more than willing to answer any questions that you might have. I do have to say that I was hunting with a partner last weekend when we encountered 1 state officer and 2 federal officer in a boat. They checked our licences, shot guns, and birds. after that, they answered any question we had and were very polite. These guys I had not met before, but my partner had. I am just glad to have met them on good terms. Anyway have good hunting with good friends , then drink good beer.
It's hard to pull 1 inch through 6 inches of material while doing "the dance", and looking skyward.
