it was a scheduled visit to inspect my quail pens for my Commercial Quail Breeders License. They were approved with NO problem. We then went into the shop to do paperwork, thats when he realized I was a taxidermist! He wasn't to concerned about anything in the shop, just looked around like any other person would have done. He like the rattlesnakes I had mounted and told a story about one he let get away this year. He offered to bring any ones he came across if I wanted them! Things got real comfortable when I told him he was married to my second cousin. We talked family for a while and he even invited us to come see them for dinner sometimes. He didn't bother to look in the two freezers in the shop. He told me anytime I needed bobcat tags give him a call and handed me his card with cell phone number on the back and he would drop them by. He looked at my deerheads drying and said he would definitely keep me in mind if he got the "good one". We proceded to his truck where I ask a few "grey" area questions about contradicting laws and such. I really believe having the game warden in the family is going to be a good thing for my taxidermy business. As long as I keep my nose clean and tags on bobcats I believe things will be alright. Sorry for the long post, but just wanted to share the good experience I had with our DNR officer in my county.
