Most people don't realize the power that fish and game wardens have, in several instances they have more power than the actual police, and they take their jobs exceedingly seriously.

One former fish and game warden, Terry Grosz, recounted a hilarious story from back in the early 80s. He was working in Northern California, where they had a monster salmon population. Fishermen were using illegal tactics to pull in these massive fish. By law you had to stop fishing 30 minutes before sunset, but these guys were fishing well past 2 AM. They were also fishing in pools where salmon were resting, and they were using these special lures that glowed when hit with a flashlight. It was like shooting fish in a barrel...
