Are there any other libertarian / constitution loving folks out there that see this as HUGE violation of our 4th amendment rights?

Thankfully, I have not had it happen yet, but, I am not going to be very pleasant when TWPD comes and Fs up my waters to say "papers please"

You'll probably get the same attitude you give. Let us know how that works out for you.

Do you not think GW's should have the right to check your license or equipment? Seriously? Not sure I understand your beef.

Have you never been checked by GW's?

What specific part of the write up do you take issue with? Or do you have a problem with all of it?

welcometo Texas. People that don't like it here usually move to California.

I think you meant that people who move here and don't like something are usually from California.

I think it keeps the riff-raff out. I have no problem with them checking everyone and actually wish they were out there more!
Obviously they are out there for a reason and never once have they ever screwed up my fishing.
Good luck being unpleasant with them.

You must love anal exams. Because if you take that attitude with TPWD wardens you're going to receive one. Hope all your safety equipment is up to date and on the boat.

If you disagree that strongly with the law perhaps you should express your distaste by NOT fishing.

Yeah surely it's a troll. I'd like to see the game warden out more often. Seems that when you observe someone breaking the rules there is never a game warden around. I never have an issue with the warden stopping and checking me. I appreciate that they are out looking after our best interests!

If you give the warden an attitude I hope he finds something to give you a ticket for. What goes around comes around!

I try to make sure everything looks okay when I get checked, usually at least once during early spring. As the years have gone by the checks have gotten quicker and I get some pretty thorough reports from the warden and park service. Of course, I don't have anything to hide from them either.

Probably a Troll, or something else... been a member 9 1/2 months and only 15 posts... anyway I'll jump in:

"Fs up my waters to say "papers please""

It's only your water if you are on a private pond or lake on private land. If you are fishing on, or from the shore of, a public body of water the water is the property of The People of The State of Texas and the Game Warden is duly appointed to enforce the laws of The State of Texas and restitution is how you pay back The People of The State of Texas when you steal from us.

And I get a kick when it's "papers please" time. I reach into my pocket and pull out my little gold card that says Lifetime Hunting Fishing License and hand it to them. They usually look at it, look at me, hand it back and say 'Thank You, have a nice day'(sometimes they ask if I actually have the printed out tag(s) with me as well, I always do).

Agree with all. We need more game wardens. I have probably been stopped a dozen times over the years - all were positive experiences. I follow the rules and support those who enforce them.

What part of the linked page do you think is a 4th amendment violation?
