Now to the other, if you think you cant or wont be ticketed under what i listed you may be out of touch with things that have happened in the last 20 years or so in texas

I think getting cited for missing/incorrect reflective material would be something that would only happen once a herper has done something else questionable; in other words, you are spotted allegedly violating some random provision of the code and then LE can start "piling on" to ensure something sticks...but that's just my opinion.

there is a pending case of a kid ridding in a car (not out hunting but ridding) that was ticketed for the wrong vest.

Is there a source to get particulars on this case and other similar ones? It's almost as if violations are going to go UP, despite overall number of herpers likely less than before the ban in the first place. Very clever on TPWD's part.


do you know how many out of towners get ticketed but decide its cheaper to pay it than fight it???????????? its been a few

And that's bad for everyone, because it sets a precedent.

I think it's important, as others have already said, to be courteous and non-confrontational. LE folks are people too, for the most part just trying to do their jobs.
