True story,,,,,,

Many years ago I was a LEO. We had got a new game warden for our county, name was Jeff. Now Jeff was
very religious, he stopped by the PD one day just to shoot the bull. We got to talking about deer camps &
cooking over a camp fire. I told him I had found the perfect way to cook venison, how's that he asked ?
Well I said, you get the skillet greased and good and hot. Then put the meat on and open a beer, when it's
empty turn the meat and open another beer, when that ones empty the meat is done just right. Why one
time I fried so much meat I damn near fell in the fire. ;)

He was not amused.

Oh deer, some people have no sense of humor.

How do you tell the difference between the liver and the spleen when cleaning a deer? I was never sure which was which.

You folks might have all this nomenclature a bit skewed. 'Bout 30 years ago , our state game commission , as it was called, evolved into a bloated . self centered , bureaucracy , that began turning on the very people that funded it , .......hunters ! They brought truck loads of out of state coyotes in to kill off the deer herd, Tried to plant mtn. lions in the woods , stocked Pine martins state wide , to kill off the "big woods" small game populations , and kept bear populations on the rise to further damage deer fawn numbers. Then , the commission "BLAMED" hunters for the current problems generated by the commission's own insanity. The current commission is now called , the " STATE BLAME Commission". Their goal is to get rid of hunting with firearms. Ya gotta love it.......Put enough predators in the woods to kill off game populations , and claim the need to do it as , "scientific management " . The result of all this , "scientific management " , is the need for more hunting license funding. Again , "BLAMING" hunters for complaining about fee increases. Does all this sound familiar ?????

Hearts are awesome. It is meat, as it is muscle.

All the game wardens who work my usual areas are pretty cool. Decent senses of humor considering how understaffed they are.
Cam really only remember one who was kind of a curmudgeon, but he was older and had a tough area to cover given the activities available and the type of people who had access to that area.

Yep,

Our Game wardens in my immediate area are pretty decent fellas. I run into them from time to time while working floods. When our paths cross cross while I’m hunting it’s generally pretty cordial.

Game wardens are simply feeding their families and doing their jobs.
Some States give them more power than the Sheriffs. Without the
sportsmen & women the game department/commissiion officers would
not have their jobs. They work for us and we pay their salaries. Without
them the game would be shot-out, trapped-out and suffer mass death
by every method. We salute the Fish and Wildlife Officers and Wardens.
