We were checked a couple of years ago on a pasture near Eagle Lake.

I've never been checked while quail hunting. We hunted every day of season in the 80's and early 90's in West Texas. We sometimes made opening weekend of pheasant in the panhandle and got checked every time.

A couple of times in west Texas at our lease south of Sterling city.

We have never been checked in Oklahoma but last year he rolled up on us at the truck stop in Waurika on our way out but all he did was ask us how many we killed and what kind of dogs we had. Didn't check license or birds.

Game warden come by my lease at least twice a year to check everybody. It is nice that he does. I view it like a state trooper sitting by the side of the road. Slows things down. He will some time check everything including ice chest and refrigerators. As far as I know he has never issued a citation or a warning. Seems to be more interested in deer hunters. Always very nice.

If it isn't white it is not a birddog.

Lying is lying. Don't bitch about one doing it and condone another. That's called hypocrisy.

Nope
I've been checked while hunting just about everything else, but never while quail hunting.



Shopping with your husband is like hunting with the game warden.
Experience is what you get, when you didn't get what you wanted.

They also like to work I20 around abilene on sunday evening the opening weekend of deer a quail season and deer season and stop the people pulling trailers with farm tags on them loaded with atv, dog boxes and ice chest. Easy pickings for them.

Never been checked in S. Texas, but have called the game warden after a poacher approached me on my place and asked me how the quail hunting was. Was checked while hunting blues south of Marfa. The warden told us that the border patrol had never seen a quail rig, were suspicious and asked him to look in on us.

Now wait a minute. Arent you the guy who posted a few weeks ago that big running dogs do NOT find more birds than bootlickers. Now your saying you havent hardly hunted quail. Unless you hunt everything but quail which i would doubt you dont have any creditability

See y’all around the campfire.
