Here's a perfect example of why to read the regs.
Tonight a guy drives up just north of the Mat River bridge on the Glenn just south of the Parks and heads out chasing a moose he saw. Pulls the trigger at about 9:30pm. After a quick phone call, the troopers were waiting for him when he walked out to meet with another person who was going to help him out. When asked, he tried to claim he thought the season opened on the 20th. Regs show the 25th, clear as day.
Now, as of 11:30pm, they are out trying to find the moose he shot in the pitch black and facing even more serious charges if he can't locate and salvage it.
Who knows whether it was reall an honest mistake or not, but it just reiterates the fact that you always need to read the regs, then when you are done, read them again.
