Take this as a warning to anyone that hunts or is planning to hunt doves at Salt Fork. I was out Saturday morning along with about 30 others in 1 field off of SR 22 near Salt Fork and recieved a ticket for shooting a dove off of a powerline. For the record I did no such thing but according to the warden his 2 field officers called him and said that when a "guy with a brown hat and camo pants" comes out that he shot a bird off a wire. So now based on "here say" I have a $40.00 fine to pay. However I can contest in court but the court costs are $80.00 not to mention lost wages. What a great state we live in! When I asked to talk to the "field officer who falsly accused me" I was ignored! The warden said he was "just the messenger" and didn't want to here a word I had to say! I now refuse to hunt in Guernsey county and set myself up to be falsly accused by our great wildlife officers who's apparent adgenda is to write tickets to make the state money! Had I done somethig wrong I would quietly pay the fine and let it go but I have a real hard time with signing a ticket and admitting guilt to something I did not do. What choice do you have the way the system is set up. It cost you more $ than the fine to fight it and there is no reprocusion for the accusing officer. A win win situation for them! And Ohio wonders why people aren't buying hunting license!
