Watch the first season and listen close to what they say on camera. They say more then once that if your in the outdoors your breaking the law you just have not been caught yet. Wardens in Maine have the ability to ignore the 4th. They can enter you property even when posted with out a warrant OR any just cause. You have to notify them personally to keep off your land. If you come by the Maine boards the stories are all over about there arrogance towards the people of Maine. I have NEVER even received a ticket as I do not break the law. The fact that I understand Maine laws pisses them off to no end. Wardens are forbidden on my property both at my home and my blueberry land.
Agree, our wardens have completely changed. They've become the nitpick police.
