Marty , why must you always have your heart bleed all over this issue. If you're a sheep delighted to be led to the slaughter, by all means head out. For the rest of you people with testicles or with the fortitude to think that you are endowed with certain rights that cannot be infringed upon, then demand the same respect FROM the law as you do FOR the law. Ryan, you damned right "some" of us are going to tell you to show the guy the door. Marge Schott said Hitler was a "nice guy" and got a bum rap. He is entitled BY LAW to inspect your RECORDS. He CANNOT SEARCH ANYTHING WITHOUT A WARRANT UNLESS YOU CAPITULATE. Once you open a freezer or a restricted access work area, you have forfeited all your rights and any protections of the law you may have had. Marty thinks that because the Federal Court case happened in an area dislocated from his that the Showers ruling is exempt from being upheld in your district. Nothing is farther from the truth. The ONLY step preventing this issue from reaching the US Supreme Court is that (1) no taxidermist had balls enough to pursue the issue, or (2) those that did quickly enlightened the local DNR folks that a 6 or 7 figure payout for an illegal search might actually bankrupt their agency. You're a bright young guy and the Showers case is written in plain, understandable English and is quite specific as to what constitutes an "inspection" versus what makes it a "search". People who assume that gamewardens can be your friends are the same people who take rattlesnakes to bed with them. When you get bit, you can't claim you didn't know what it was when you slipped it under the covers. Stay away from bleeding hearts and protect yourself and your family. I just heard about a case TONIGHT in Michigan where a taxidermist ceded to a search with catastrophic results. You'll soon see it here I'm sure, but it all happened because the taxidermists "didn't want to piss off the warden."
