I was on the way back from the lease last weekend with my brother in my dusty truck when I saw a TX DPS officer in an SUV on the side of the road. I didn't think I was speeding so I was surprised when he turned on the red n blues and came after me.

I had my license and insurance ready on the dash and both hands on the wheel when he got to my door with the window open. LEO have it tough, I try real hard to make it easy as I can. He told me I was being pulled over for a "speed check", whatever the heck that is. He saw all the gear in the back and asked if we had been hunting. Told him we were so busy we didn't have time to bow hunt, but I did pop a white wing around camp. He said OK, asked a few more questions about it (I thought he was just making conversation) then went back to his vehicle.

About 5 seconds after he gets in another LEO gets out of his passenger side and came up to my truck. Game Warden... he asked for my license and what I did with the dove. Told him I didn't have time to clean it so I had it in the cooler. I'm sure if I had breasted it out I may have caught some static. Having no running water paid off!

It wasn't until afterwards when he sped off, going around a couple of sedans, to pull over a pickup towing a trailer with an ATV that I realized what had happened. They were fishing. Profiled! It's probably better I didn't figure it out until it was over.

Anyone ever had that happen?

Exactly why you NEVER volunteer ANY information to ANY authority.

Texretvet is 100% correct. Law enforcement are NOT your friends. By trying to be friendly you set yourself up for a bust. Never volunteer or answer any questions from any authority.

True, I was even told that by a cop.

It's the time of year they get stiffies for this stuff. I have been pulled over for it before, and they were more interested in how my trailer was registered.

I guess you could say I have been "profiled" before. LOL

When I was about 17 me and a friend were fishing from the bank at Lake Ray Hubbard. After we left and were going over I-30 a Game Warden pulls in behind us. He asks if we had been fishing and we told him yes. Asked if we caught any and we said yes. He asked to see them and we told him we let them go. He then proceeded to search the truck inside and out. Even looked under the sun visors and in the Mapsco for them fish we let go. hammer Obviously he was looking for more than fish that day and never found either.

I know a guy that got pulled over just because he had two four wheelers on his trailer.
They wanted all the paper work to check if they were stolen.
That's a good thing, but just shows you have to be prepared.

Just how do you avoid answering if LE asks a direct question about your activities such as "Been hunting"? Lying to an LEO is obstruction of justice, isn't it?

Why would you lie or withhold information unless you were hiding something....good grief.

On I-20, they used to sit on the bridges and look for deer in the back of trucks. If you had one, a GW would pull you over shortly. Never bothered me

Had the exact same thing happen to me coming into Browmwood in front of the old 3M plant...

Trooper Pulls me over and as he's talking to me (I was Speeding) see someone in my right eye talking to Lovie thru the passenger side window..

Trooper and I chat and he gives me a warning then said I think my Partner needs to ask you a few questions, checked my Coolers and we chatted...There's a reason it says State Police on a Wardens Vehicle now...Didn't Bother me a Bit, both were Brothers and Trooper gave me a Warning when I was obviously speeding..

Don't do anything wrong and you won't have a issue roflmao

In Texas all you have to give them is your name. Anything else you can decline to answer
