Joe Kish's article resurrected a question I have had for a while but forgot to ask here. Why is it that ,it seems a big proportion of taxidermists have such a lack of respect for game wardens? Is it because a bunch of us have an issue with authority, or is it the fact that some received a citation for breaking the law? What is it? Some will say they can't get a straight answer out of a warden, try going above him or her, you will most likely get a bigger run around from folks higher on that food chain. Been there done that. I'm betting that most wardens have a great appreciation for the wildlife, like we as taxidermists do. I would bet most wardens are not anti hunting or anti sport fishing. In fact they understand the importance of both in managing the wildlife. In my experience, quite a few feel the same way about these stupid feel good laws the government enacts that they are sworn to uphold. They have an important job to do. Some do get overzealous on occasion, but they are human.
