CDFW Eastern Sierra Wardens to Conduct Wildlife Checkpoint

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

Don't be surprised if some day you see me in a shoot out with the officers at a check point. I'd much rather "die on my feet than live on my knees". :mad:


...I really like your attitude Rougue! :nod: :nod:

this wasn't meant to be a scary political page. It was meant to be a heads up. I think everyone here is pretty law abiding.

Probable cause for DFG to search your boat/vehicle is having fishing gear onboard.

That is what I have been told.

Too many people poach, take undersized, out of season or illegal fish and game too often. I follow the rules and am polite with Wardens and never have issues.

I don't really want to get into the rest of it.

As I recall they did this last year too. Education and easy pickings of unsuspecting unlawful types.
I was exiting Coyote Ridge above Bishop some time ago and was stopped at a checkpoint on the trail. They asked how the hunting was. Told them I wasn't a hunter. They then told me that they saw me shooting on the ridge through their binoculars. I said they were mistaken. They asked to look under the tarp on the truck (used to keep the dust off of stuff) and found neither game or guns... A pain and waste of time, but I guess necessary to protect he resources. The binocular scam/scare was I guess a chance to come clean if it was true?
