Was dove hunting in Falls county when the game warden paid us a visit. One hunter left his license in his truck got it and all was good. Game warden was very professional. had a very good visit. Did any of yall get checked and how did it go.

Got checked. All went well. Watched her write a bunch of tickets. No plug, no hunters safety card/certification, wrong license. It amazes me how many people get written up for the dumbest mistakes.

We have a very good GW here in Stephens county. That being said, he will write a ticket. When he was new he gave a lot of warning the first year. The second year he came to me and said the uppers have told him he needs to write more tickets and less warning. He come by and told me this before season and told me to tell all my guys to be sure and be legal. I tell all my hunters that he will come by and for them to check their Plug, Hunter Safety and HIP cert. One of my guys got a ticket for no Hunter safety. If they get a ticket, It's on them.

Dealt with the GW at Stompy's place a few times. Super nice guy, even encourages you to keep hunting while he checks your partner. Most of the time no one would shoot; limited the number of witnesses to missed shots! scared

We had the police show up. They watched us at the gate for 15 minutes and then left. It turns out some joggers placed a call. rofl

Landowner says happens every year.

Got checked for the 1st time in over 10 years yesterday. When I saw 1 one the game wardens taking the barrel off my buddies shotgun I was thinking, oh no, no plug in gun. But saw warden take out a plug. Come to find out, buddies gun is a winchester and he had a remington plug in it, 4th shell went in. Guess winchester has a longer magazine tube. Buddy pleaded his case and GW was cool, put a pencil in there and said need to check it next time you plug a gun, don't assume. That was that. Told him dude we're luckier than chit, good thing no deputy do right showed up.

Yep, he is always around, and knows where the hot fields are.

If you are hauling a 4 wheeler west on 380 you can expect a visit from the game warden. I passed two yesterday on the way back to Dallas...they weren't checking fields.

We get checked in Comal County every year by a Warden that is a complete turd. We are always legal and it seems to tick him off.
But he didn't show up this year. It was almost disappointing, he adds a bit of spark to opening day.
