One Red-Faced Conservation Officer

Postby w4sar » Wed Nov 27, 2013 1:16 pm

I was just told of this by my father, the incident involved a buddy of his:

Said buddy was sitting up in a ladder stand in New York. After a couple of hours he sees a conservation officer walk up, look at the ground, and then scan the surrounding area. When the officer spots him, he points, and starts yelling "You, come down from there right now, and bring everything you have with you!"

The man responds : "What is the problem officer? I have permission to hunt here and have done nothing wrong."

"You know what you did! Now get down here!"

"Officer, I really don't know what you're talking about."

"You are hunting over bait!"

"What bait?"

"You've placed apples all over the ground!"

"Officer, you are standing under an apple tree, this used to be an orchard."

The officer looks up, and his jaw drops. He then says, "Sorry, please disregard." and then he leaves.

LOL! In Illinois they'd have given him the ticket anyway, as the attitude here seems to be that ALL hunters are violators, that just haven't been caught yet.
Hunt Hard,

Kill Swiftly,

Waste Nothing,

Offer No Apologies.....

I'll have to ask my father, maybe Schoharie County or further north on private land. When I lived up north , I hunted the Stewart Airport Cooperative area in Orange County, there were a few long-abandoned orchards that the forest had grown into. The old apple trees still produced, and I'd stuff my pockets with apple varieties that are no longer marketed.

I am familiar with that area,,,,I started my career in Greene county. Not a very observant officer,,,, maybe new on the force. I have heard of similar situations. No excuse for it though.
