How ridiculous! What a complete waste of taxpayer resources.

Difficult to understand how a law enforcement officer doing the job he takes an oath to perform is a waste of taxpayer resources.

Waste because that time could be spent tracking down serious offenders instead of fining someone for an obscure hunting violation that most people are probably not even aware of.

Maybe next time you have something stolen and never get any justice you'll understand better.

If you are aware of more serious hunting and fishing offenses, contact the TWRA.

People should know the laws before they go hunting and fishing.

TWRA officers don't investigate thefts of private property.
