    Good to hear! Thanks for sharing. I know the DWR isn't able to police everyone, but it's nice to see some guys got caught and they paid a good fine for it. Do you think those on the Refuge Forums that shoot early every year (you know you're here) will think twice next year?

    Hopeful, but not holding my breath.

    A CO officer told me that they wrote a ticket yesterday for someone shooting 1 hour after close time yesterday... Good to see them policing it!

    Vanillia's right, for most it won't make a difference just like the chance of getting a speeding tickets slows folks down.

    The odds ain't that good of getting one, some folks just can't drive 55 and some just can't get start on time.:dv

    To be effective, the fine will have to hurt way more than a couple hundred bucks. How about $100/minute just as over limit is so much per bird over? Works for me. :tu

    Who shoots one hour after shooting ends for the day? Their isn't a bird out there that is worth shooting an hour late or early. People lose sight of the fact that we are so lucky to have all sorts of habitat and migratory birds to hunt and breaking the rules will eventually land you in legal hot water.
