Yeah I guess the poachers have ruined it for everyone.

Still though, in places like rural Montana and Alaska it's pretty common to see people armed while out in the boonies, even while walking along the side of a rural road with a rifle or shotgun and in Montana I've seen state troopers simply pass on by while seeing this too.  I think in those parts it's just assumed that in a rural or wilderness area a lot of poeple have guns and often carry them.

I hate watching these shows on cable networks about state troopers or game wardens.  They make it appear as if everyone is doing something bad by fishing or hunting or simply having a firearm.  That show on Nat Geo called Wild Justice left many non-hunters with the impression that all hunters are paochers and that hunting is illegal regardless.  It's just the way those shows come across to the average viewer. 

But I suppose game wardens have a job to do and that's what we entrust them to do.
