    I've only been checked once in 30 years in Ohio . But with the increase in prices, I'm sure they will be out in force in the future....... THE CATKING !!!
     

  3. Got checked 2 times in my life, once when I was 12 and once when I was 18. Neither time I had a liscense :eek: . The latter was while fishing hard water on 3 January. Licenses were on the calender year in WI at the time. DOH!
     
  4. I was checked 3 times in one summer I think it was 98 at Lake Logan I was night fishing all three times. And I've had my hunting licens checked 2 times one was during dove season out by Rushville , Ohio and the other was out in the same area but on state land. So I've had my fair share and yes I had my licenses every time one time was by a sheriff duputy when a lady called and reported us cause she didn't know her uncle gave us permision to hunt his land. Later All. P.s. I think hocking is one of the counties that checks the most around this area. Unless you are out on Buckeye lake but I'm friend with the Rangers up there since I use to be a fire fighter in Millersport. Pays to have friends in them type of fields.

    I have been checked 6 times that I can remember. Last year was my 1st year fishing in Indiana (Tanners Creek). I fished there twice and got checked once.

    I have been checked most up at Lake Erie and at the Maumee River.

    I think I have been checked once or twice in the last few years here in Ohio. One was at CC spillway about 3 years back and the other was I think at Cowan. I got checked fishing out in Montana last summer, I guess it made buying the expensive one day license worthwhile!
     
  17. Six times fishing and three hunting in Ohio. One time in Canada, one time Pennsylvania.
     
  18. Yes I've been checked. As a matter of fact it was 3 times in 2 weeks by the same game warden on the same stretch of creek I fish all the time. At the time it kind of aggravated me but I guess he was doing his job and that's what we pay them to do!!!!! By the way that was in N. W. Ohio. That was probably 10 years ago. Like I said none of us like to be checked but that is their job and it's what we pay them to do!

    I usually get checked 3-4 times a year. Once 4 times in a year by the same guy, ya think he'd remember the vehicle. Anyway, I guess it is good cuz if he is asking me then he is asking others and doing his job.
