    Game Warden came to my house when I had a doe hanging and asked me about 20 mins worth of questions but never asked to see if I had it tagged just asked and I offered documentation he said he was fine.

    Never been checked while hunting- unless you count tagging deer at check stations in TN. Got checked once in Arkansas trout fishing and once in Carter Co while fishing for smallmouth. That time, CO pulled up as we were getting our gear together at the truck. We had on camo waders and he thought we were trying to open turkey season a few weeks early. Once he saw the fishing gear, he was more friendly and spent about a half hour shooting the s--- with us.

    I get checked every year fishing at rough river. About five years ago I bought my first sportmans license. We were bowhunting the WMA in Taylorsville and about to leave when two game wardens pulled in behind us and blocked us. One old timer and a new young rookie. We BS for a few minutes and the old timer says "hell, while I got you all here we will go ahead and check your hunting licenses. Well I pull mine out and hand it to the young guy. He looks at it for a few seconds and takes a step back while putting one hand on top of his side arm and says "Okay...I see your license. Now show me your deer tags." Now I knew the sportsman covered everything but when he questioned it I started doubting myself and started to panic and stutter like a eight year old in the principles office. finally the other warden said "what's going on over there." The rookie said "this fella doesn't have a deer tag" I began to smell the load that was trying to drop out my backside about the time the old timers said "damn boy, that's a sportsmans license. He's got it all covered." He looks a me and laughs and said sorry about that.

    raised n Bullitt Co.
    3-4 yrs ago in Bardstown. had two deer on a trailer and they both belonged to my two sons. Game wardens were great with the boys. explained what and why they were checking. they gave the boys some "trinkets". they made a very positive impression on the boys, and because of that they make sure they tag properly and know the regs.

    Back in the 1980's and only then because we were camping out and the neighboring farmer called the warden. I've only been checked twice in my 60 year lifetime and I've fished and hunted since I was 12 years old.
