Hunting in Outside Louisiana
Sharing my experience with the wardens
Thursday 8/4/12 i was riding my 4 wheeler on my lease which covers thousands of acres. It was my first year as a member and my second time out there. Long story shortened as much as possible here... I turned off an inner trail onto a dirt road which i would come to learn is a county road and as my luck would have it, in the few minutes i was on this dirt road i crossed paths with a sheriffs deputy. He stopped me and asked what i was doing. i explained nothing in particular just riding, hog hunting, learning the property and just having fun. He called in the wardens, they asked me if i had proof of membership of the hunting club. I said i have a receipt in my truck for money paid to the club, i have a key that will unlock any gate on the property and i have a phone number to one of the board members of the club. None were acceptable as proof and they issued me a trespassing ticket. They said i needed to have my membership id card, which doesnt exist by the way. Am i correct to think these are a couple of dumbarses or am i out of line?
