With all the hoopla that is happening with Dan Richards and others it would be cool see an episode or two on the CA Fish and Game Wardens "Wild Justice" show titled, "Wild Politics". :)

Have not missed an episode since it started airing. Though I like the show it appears to me sometimes that the game wardens their tend to believe that there is no innocent hunters at all, but that could be because they only air the episodes with only the people who violate the laws.

Haha yeah and an uproar of citizens and impeachments. I love it!!!!! It should be a prerequisite to run for office, have a camera 24/7 feed for one month.

Unfortunately, it seems that this is the way most or at least a lot of the CA DFG Wardens seem to operate. There are definitely good one's out there too but a lot of them seem to follow the guilty until proven innocent mentality. There are places I no longer hunt just because I know the likelihood is high that I will get checked and have the wardens go through all of my stuff every time or nearly everytime I go there. I'm a legal hunter but it seems that I'm always getting the shake down and the wardens are overly eager just to write citations. I choose many times just to hunt another area because sometimes it feels like you're being harassed because you are a hunter and use public lands.

Saw three different wardens today around Town and one had two brand new Tahoes following him. So what I'm saying is that WJ is filming around Fresno. Had a run in with them last year. I was heading back to camp because I forgot my license in my other pants. Got stopped 200 yards from camp. I know that I was in the wrong but they wouldn't let me walk to camp and get it. End result, two misdemeanors and no deer tag this year.

I like the show from last year but I think the show gets the better of the warrdens

I blame this show for sb 1221. They make it too dramatic and make every hunter seem like a poacher. Not the publicity California hunters need. Montana has a show called wardens and it shows that there are a lot of ethical hunters out there and promotes hunting. Just my 10 cents

I agree Wardens promotes hunting and I've seen them give a lot of breaks to folks or warnings and helping folks out. The big difference between the two shows in my opinion is that Wardens is on a outdoor channel that promotes hunting greatly. Nat Geo on the other hand has little to no hunting programming on the channel. With all the hoopla as of late with Melissa Bachman getting removed from one of their shows on Nat Geo due to her being a hunter from pressure from a anti hunting petition, well to me that says a lot to me on their true views on hunting.

I have to agree with you about making most hunters look like poacher's. It would be nice if they would 180 and start giving hunters more positve credit, but I guess that might make bad TV.....so they think?

From what I've seen of the show, 99% of Cal. game wardens are jerkoffs. Their view is "All hunters are guilty of something." Terrible show. Really sucks. NatGeo sucks too anymore. I no longer tune into either one of them.

The problem with a situation like this is you probably could have went to trial on this and won.

I had a run in with that punk ass blonde kid from the oroville area. I was heading for the truck with 2 salmon, he accused me of snagging the fish and lied to me saying he had video of it. I called bull sh!t, because I had done nothing wrong. His response was " it's your lucky day", and he walked off. That the one and only bad encounter I've had with a warden, all others have been cool.

Sorry, I know we need wardens, but a couple encounters in the past have led me to KNOW that 90% of them are a$$holes. Just like the highway patrol, cant solve any real crime, so they drop the hammer on anyone driving 5mph over the speed limit!

I guess somebody should stick up for these guys. I've had more "good" run ins, than bad. This year on the dove opener we had a warden check our licenses. Few of the guys did not have licenses in their possession. Left them back in the truck. We were on private property so it is what it is. The warden did a check on the radio for those guys, found out that they did buy licenses and stamps so no tickets were written.

Most of the time that I've made contact it has been cordial and respectful.

I did have a run in with a warden up at Beardsley Lake about 10 + years ago. I did not get a ticket for anything but just talking to him, he made it clear to me that he thought most of the people that enjoyed our forrests were scum to him. He actually said that he wished they would shut the down to the public. I've talked to several people over the years up in that area, and he was kind of legendary as far as being a miserable, angry sob.

That's what a few LEO's I know say about CHP. Their also known as AAA with a badge LOL! That's rough,5mph over! I have been let go with a warning a time or two so I can't say to much. I do respect all LE because we do need them. :)

I could tell you about two run in's with Ca. Warden's years ago but I'll spare you the long read. One couldn't write a ticket and the other did and I said I'll see you in court jerkoff. He said I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and tear it up. I said that's ok , I don't mind making you look like an ass.in court. He knew I had a friend as a witness and 3 forestry personnel . He tore the ticket up . Every warden I've met in Wy.,Az.,Ut., Co. and Nv. Has been nice. I think they think well of non res hunters. I've only met 2 nice highway patrolman in my life and it was many yrs. ago.

I did and got a old retired judge. Didn't take long to figured out he was a hunter. Long story short , he dropped it down to one infraction. Only cost me 75 bucks. Got lucky.

I had a warden that has been on that show a few times show up to my house on a tues night (Shoot Night) with a buddy. While we were all bsing in my garage after the sun went down I look over and see him grab a few sets of antlers and check my tags small thing but definatly rubbed me the wrong way. Needless to say it was the first and last time he was over there shooting.

I've never had a bad run in with a warden. They have always been really nice to me. One year I was bowhunting antelope in southern Wyoming and I was walking back to my truck and saw a game warden up the road watching me. He checked my tags and asked where my archery license was, I had totally forgotten to buy it. He told me he thinks it wasn't an honest mistake and told me he wouldn't write me a citation as long as I went right to town and bought one. When I was picking out my bear baiting areas they helped me a lot and when I went and checked my bear in they were super nice to me. I've had quite a few run ins with them and they have always been nice to me. I know there are a couple wardens around here that nobody seems to like and I haven't had I deal with them yet. I just figure I can't knock it until I try it. At one of my jobs I got yelled at all the time by the customers because of the things I was told to do and the way I was supposed to do them. I'm sure they are trained to be the way they are and it's not just that they are all a-holes. Yes, I'm sure there are some that abuse their badge but I think you will find that in any profession.
