Game Wardens do not need warrants.

    all they need is suspicion or probable caus or a fake anominus tip, then they can legally enter your land and or home weather or not you being there .. for example If my neibour didn't like me and wanted to cause problems for me, all they would have to do is call the local game and wild life department or the department of natural resources and say that I'm keeping a baby deer on my property.. then with out a warrant they could legally enter my property and home to look for said deer.. however they can't look in your cupboard or under your couch and what not, but they can and will look through your fridge and freezer..

    Oh ya - wardens are complete dicks sometimes. I had one try to give me a ticket for no boat registration ON MY SAIL BOARD. Somehow I talked my way out of it. Once they wanted to bust me for OREGANO they found in my backpack during a camping trip. Another time I got a ticket in the BWCA for no permit, because the damn lake had ice on it and I couldn't get into Quetico park. Way too much power, with negligible training.

    My Friend Pat was busted in the in 1980's twice by game wardens going through his vegetable garden in Vermont. They said in court the weed was in plain view while conducting their job tracking wildlife. He could not beat it in court, lucky for him Vermont is and was liberal so he got probation.

    Here's a tip. If your ever get bust for growing, whether it be indoors or out, in court ask them to see the THC test. You would not believe how often they forget.
