Me either but I have given a few a chance to be!
Like the time one just opened our door up on LOW and stepped in at the same time as saying DNR. I did not see a badge and said where's your badge? He had a mini one inside his coat on his shirt! We all laughed, showed him our lic's and fish and he went on his way!
Had a wheelhouse rented out of Isle Saturday through Monday AM. Went several places in search of shiners, they were hard to come by, so had a mix of suckers, rainbows and fatheads.
Was set up in 28' of water. 3 eye's total (2 in the 16" range and a 21.5"). Two came on rattle reel with a rainbow and plain hook, the other came on a bobber - same set-up. Caught a few perch jigging.
Everything came on a whole minnow. Nothing on heads, maggots, waxies etc.
Popped a bunch of holes in shallower water and got nothing on tip-ups or hole hopping. Planned to go east of The Graveyard, but I thought I should get home before the ice storm hit.
I'm not really complaining, just sharing my experience. And i never had any preconceived notion that all CO's were pricks, it just sucks that the one experience I had was far from pleasant.
One of my favorite shows is North Woods Law - the one where they follow the Maine DNR around. Anyways, not sure if they're just being nice because of the cameras, but they all seem like stand-up guys and are pretty good communicators.
I've always had respect for those guys and the work that they do. All I would ask for in return is mutual respect and a simple "have a good day".
