TPWD Game Warden Field Notes

The following are excerpts from recent Texas Parks and Wildlife Department law enforcement reports.

“Would You Like Fries with that Ticket?” — While on his day off and at his residence, a Kenedy County Game Warden heard a vigorous knocking at his back door. Opening the door, he saw a larger brand new red four-wheeler parked at his back door. The person who knocked said he wanted some information about where he could ride his new All-Terrain Vehicle on the creek and go hunting. The warden noticed the person did not have the required safety equipment and asked for his ATV certification. The person advised he had bought two brand new ATVs and was not aware of the rules. When asked where he came from with the ATV, the person advised he rode it over from his girlfriend’s house in Sarita. The warden then issued the subject a citation and sent him on his way. The warden said he is now thinking of putting a drive-through citation and confession window at his residence.
