When is the PGC going to sign up. I see Maine, California and Alaska have warden shows on. Pretty interesting.
That same exact episode was on yesterday on the outdoor channel in the afternoon. That situation was a little fishy.Joe the Logger said:Not much to argue about most of the time. There is a real good episode of the Montana Wardens where two older guys trespass and kill a deer. The landowner witnesses from far away and calls the Warden. He finds the two guys, and they tell a whopper, which he believes, and he lets them go. Then he finds the landowner, the evidence shows they were lying, and he knows he turned them loose. The Warden looks right in the camera and says, " Not only was I duped by two senior citizens, I was duped on Camera" ! It showed a good sense of humor, and since it was on film, he would have no trouble catching up with them later.
I had a similar reaction to the Maine Warden episodes. The wardens often seem to be playing up to the cameras. Statements made by the wardens should have made their agency administrators cringe. When the show Cops came out there was also a distinct difference from agency to agency. Lots of similar playing up for the camera resulting in poor public images. What the editors see as good TV often leaves bad impressions to the viewers.dce said:They don't always have the evidence.I saw one show from Maine where a Warden was really hassling a guy because he thought he shot a deer in a bordering WMU.As it turned out,the guy was able to prove where he shot it.I watched several other episodes from Maine and they also gave me that impression.The guys from Montanna definately seem much more down to earth.
