outlaws out for snipe

Today Johnny and I hit the lake in search of more snipe. We are at the split of duck season so a couple more weeks till we can hit the quack pipe again. It was a beautiful day out there and we found a good number of birds. We probably would have shot our limits but we were detained for an hour by a sheriff officer who was convinced we were doing something illegal. He checked us over then double and triple checked us. Determined to find something he could arrest us for or at the least give us a ticket for. He threatened court and fines. He pulled out his ticket book three times and waved it around. He told us what (he thought) we were doing wrong. I explained the actual law to him. He got really pissed and threw a bit of a fit. Then he realized there was nothing he could do and sent us on our way. I can't tell you how many times I have had to inform LEO of what the law really is. It must really suck when they get someone that isn't intimidated and knows hunting laws better than they do. Beside that it was a pretty awesome day.
