Yup...

My hunting and fishing license and all tags stay in the outer most zip pocket of my hunting day pack 24/7/365. I dont pick that pack up to leave the house on a trip, or on any day during the trip without my very first action being a check to make sure those documents are still there, and the dates are still valid..

WAY too much too lose for even one small or innocent mistake..

Deer Cops where I'm from play no games..

A lot of states are in a compact with other states when it comes to wildlife violations. Lose your license in one you lose it in the rest.

Sure, go ahead, what could go wrong...
LOL.

There are very few jobs in law enforcement where you know in advance that almost everyone you talk to is armed.

Our Duck Detectives are relentless and ruthless. IMO they spend way too much time on non-game violations, but one thing is Virginia is a certainty, if you have an interaction with a State Trooper or a Conservation Police Officer, you're leaving with a summons, or several if they can figure out how to make em stick.

The Interstate Wildlife Violators Compact. It looks like all but 5 states are currently members, with 4 of the 5 holdouts "in process" to becoming members. source https://www.naclec.org/wvc/

In Pennsylvania we don't confiscate anything unless it's unlawfully taken game. Vehicles are definitely off-limits unless extreme circumstances where they are needed for evidence. Firearms/accessories are taken for evidence, given back after adjudication. Rarely a judge will order the firearm turned over to our agency. Penalties escalate: One deer out of season or over the limit is $1000.00 to $1500.00. Second deer is a misdemeanor. Three years license suspension too. Court system is too lenient at times with the theory that it's a victimless crime.

I had a "hunter" driving off road going bear hunting when he saw a cub bear in a foot hold trap. Of course mom was guarding this cub so he stops 50 yards away and shot the mother while lighting it up with his headlights. Then he felt "bad" for the cub so he shot it too (limit is one). Misdemeanor charges reduced to ARD which basically removes everything from your record after one year of no other violations and a $500.00 penalty. Didn't seem like enough to me.

Down here in the swamp, the 'poachers' are often their own worst enemy. Most like to brag as to what they shot or caught. While not the sharpest tools, most of the time they will be armed.
