Honga, I respect the fact that you devoted years of your professional life to enforcing MWF regs, but it seems clear to me that if,as I believe you stated, you only wrote citations for hunters that you knew to be aware of the bait, then you were choosing to NOT enforce strict liability. As I understand, the conventional enforcement approach was the opposite of the one you took. I'm thinking about Bill Parkers take on the topic. He ceased waterfowl hunting and had his officers and prosecuting attorneys do the same as he realized that strict liablity would have given his department a black eye and forced him to fire the warden or attorney should he unknowingly hunt near bait and be caught doing so. I don't know if you worked for the state or the feds. DNR does have a reputation for being somewhat more concerned with fairness and intent than FWS, but ultimately under SL, neither of them have to prove you knew.
