I guess they use public safety as their excuse to for this check point? A guy can’t even go legally fishing without getting harassed anymore.

according to the article, only fisherman and hunters are required to stop, so if I’m just travelling through, I would not be stopped. I wonder how they do this? a sign saying pull over if you’re a fisherman or hunter?
