    I would like to see just how many of us got checked by a game warden\ conservation officer this deer season.

    I for one didn't nor do I know of anyone getting checked. I never even seen one driving around. The only time I've ever got check was twice dove hunting and once in the middle of winter while fishing.

    It seems to me during dove season they come out of the wood work but deer season they are scarce. I would be nice if they were a little more visible during deer season.

    I'd say they are plenty busy during deer season but there are so many hunters, the odds of getting checked are low.

    I didn't get checked but I know they were out on Cumberland Parkway this past weekend. I hadn't seen them out there in years I was glad they were out there being seen. Apparently they had two on a bridge and would radio down to officers on the parkway.

    our co's for the most part do a great job. most people don't cut them any slack. have you ever tried to cover a county with over 500 miles of roadways not to include the rabbit paths we hunt. they are getting call from people, frankfort, and the county where they live. then you have spot lighter complaints, and landowners. they have 8hrs shift may be a little overtime not much. so your getting checked is slim at best. try walking a mile in his or her shoes and see how well you do. co's i think you do a great job and no one ever tells them this. how many of us walk up on people with a loaded gun on a daily basis.

    I have never been checked in the 18 years I have been hunting deer, the only time I have ever been checked has been on the water.

    I got checked on Peabody. He was very cool and profesional
     
  9. My son got checked earlier in the year while squirrel hunting in Allen County.

    When I was walking out of the woods on opening day of gun season about 5 years ago, the CO was waiting behind my truck to check me.

    That's about the only times we have been checked.

    Yep

    Got checked 3 times in a day and a half on the same piece of ground by the same guy while helping out some elk hunters.:mad: I don't mind being checked but I would prefer being checked at the truck or while we were not in hot pursuit of elk.

    I've never got checked could be he's my first cousin's husband, so it I did something it would for sure get back to him through the family. He said that they checked over 500 deer a couple of Saturdays ago and just a few weren't legal. I wish that we actually had more CO, because they are spread then, especially in Pike Co. because it's just to large of a county to cover and do it efficiently.

    I've been hunting for 22 years and have never once been checked or even seen a CO during deer season except maybe at a check station when those were still around.
