    Never. Tried to take my buck once though. 16" wide 10pt. Said i shot it at 5 pm when i shot it at 4:20. Luckily we had a field photo on a cell phone with the time. That deer was retrieved, and dressed before 5pm. Warden actually reset his watch. Last day of PA rifle season. They have since added an extra half hour of shooting light.

        Parking ticket. To launch from a boat ramp had to use a "self pay station" and forgot to bring small bills. No place with in miles to make change plus it was bout 530am. Wasn't going to let it ruin my fishing trip and launched anyway. Came back and found a ticket on my windshield. Would have been mad but I had a limit of slab crappie that day. well worth it.

              Yeah I did and its kind of a funny story. I was moving from one piece of property to another I had to cross the county road on my horse. Well about that time Mr Warden shows up sees me on the horse with the rifle in the scabbard. He says Sir is that rifle loaded and I say yes it is. He said you'll have to unload it and I'm giving you a ticket for hunting from a county road. I said I wasn't hunting from the road I was crossing it, and if he wanted the gun unloaded he'll have to do it himself, the horse was gunshy and I wasn't getting thrown. Well I handed him my rifle and got both ands on the horn. When he let the bolt go forward that horse did his best to put me in orbit including running into the fence row. After things calmed a bit I told Mr Warden see it told you I wasn't hunting from the road, he gave me the ticket anyway.

                I got a ticket once, I was trying to find a place to primative camp. Once we found a place we parked and set up the tents. We started a controlled fire and all was well. About 10 minutes later the Warden pulls up, I greeted him and he asked if that was my fire? Of course it is, well there was a ban on burning in the forest that I did not know about and a dumb law on camping within 200 yards of a man made structure or road. Thats bull, but he ended up giving me and my friend a ticket for leaving the road way to unload our cars.

                        It seems that wardens in NC are not out to help the public, but to break their balls. I am yet to meet a warden who was not a complete ass hole. No tickets though.

                          I had a buddy who thought muzzle loading season ended on a Monday, when it actually ended on Sunday. He comes walking out of the woods, in the evening with a borrowed gun on his shoulder.

                          The game warden asked if he killed anything,and he said no. The warden said to be glad, that the season ended the day before, and that he could confiscate the muzzle loader. My buddy got to keep the gun and recieved a $162.00 ticket ... he felt lucky!

                            One for a unloaded uncased gun in the back of my truck going from one section of the farm to the next hunting coyotes. It was less than a mile on a dirt road. I was the lazy idiot and I deserved it.
