Pumpkins aren't the only thing orange at this time of year!
This weekend, on our return trip from Eastern Utah, we were stopped at a wildlife checkpoint. The purpose is to check the carcasses of hunters to make certain that they are appropriately tagged and that the hunter (usually dressed in florescent orange and camouflage) has a permit for the dead animal he or she is toting. While I understand that the officers at the wildlife checkpoint were acting in accordance to mandates, is it probable that a person would return from hunting carting an elk in the back of a mini-van?
