I don't play an outdoorswoman on tv but I am one in real life. Luck has nothing to do with it. Considering a lot of the people the wardens encounter are armed, I think their obvious caution and reserved nature when first meeting people is warranted. A good attitude and not doing things I shouldn't be doing keeps me on good terms with the wardens. I hunt turkey, bear, deer, snowshoe hare, partridge and coyote. I canoe, kayak, camp, hike, fish open and hard water, wild harvest, am a HOFNOD instructor and outdoors skills instructor, and more. There are opportunities for them to be hateful to me if they want to be, and it never happens. I don't know anyone who has problems with them unless they deserve it.

Impressive indeed (if I weren't already impressed).

Thanks. A lot of people spend a lot of time outdoors without ever having problems with the wardens.

The only time I have had interaction with a Game Warden was when a warden had caught a man fir-tipping on my land. I had given him and his family verbal permission but had not signed the proper form that the warden wanted to see him have. No big deal, the warden had the forms in his truck, I signed it and everyone was happy

To me it seems that he was trying to protect me as land-owner.

good point

Ive been well over 30 years in the woods, and fishing, and have to say, with all the run-ins with wardens ive had, they were professional.... i got angry at one, but it was ultimately, my fault.

In Maine you would be required to have a permit to hide [conceal] a loaded firearm on your person. But a permit is not required so long as you are not hiding a firearm.
In Vermont the only license you need is a drivers license

I've not met the Warden down this way but the only bad thing I've heard of him is it takes him time to get to the island during deer season when someone wants him. From what I know he's a good guy from a good family. You can't be everywhere and our society has an "instant gratification" outlook. I know his brother's; all good, with big law enforcement background
