as far as fishing once a year. How does the ranger know that? Should he take the anglers word for it :

If he only received a ticket he should be thankful. Some locals got caught boating down a local river spot lighting game at night. They lost their boats, trailers, all tackle and their vehicles. It only takes a minute to check the laws and buy the license but not doing so can bring years of regret if you lose hunting and fishing privileges, pay fines and lose expensive gear.
Personally I don't mind paying and in fact donate money and time to aid the Arkansas Game and Fish. These guys make very little pay and deal with more armed citizens than any other law enforcement agency. Most are good guys that don't abuse their authority but when one does it sure gives them all a bad name. When comes right down to it fish or hunting without a license is stealing from all the rest of us that do always pay. I know some will say what if a man is feeding his family and can't afford the price of a license. Well I guess I would have to question if he could not afford a license how is he affording to fish? But then some of the Game Wardens I know are such good men that if they knew a man really could not afford a license and was in the straits that if he caught no fish his kids would go to bed hungry. They would buy him a license out of their own pocket. I have seen it at the resort I once owned. So there is no really good excuse to get caught without a license. There are only excuses that make us feel better or justified about getting caught without one.

Made a few casts at the wrong place and the wrong time. Took my gear for 1 yr, $50 fine and couldn't get a license in VT for 1yr.

Whether you think you can, or you think you can't, you're probably right!

In NH they have 1 free fishing day a year where you can go fish anything you want and not have to worry about a license. Also, kids under the age of 16 do not need a license. Good thing as A lot of my spare time as a kid was spent on a river chasing big shiners. ;D

My GF was visiting me in NJ and we got her a 1 day pass. Lucky we did, because that was the first and only time I had ever seen rangers checking. But the kicker was he didn't believe the license was legit...
