    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.

End result, two misdemeanors and no deer tag this year.
    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.

    I've meet some cool wardens but there's always a few that have the "power trip".

    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!
