    Caught this article in the ST. Sounds like a wildlife officer and some suspects traded gunfire a week ago in Grant County. The officer was busting them for fishing without a license.

    I've always wanted to see more WDFW officers on the beat to stop poaching and increase enforcement, but episodes like this underscore the need to keep our officers safe too. WDFW needs a bigger budget.

    I was told by several National Park rangers that the threat level at many rural and urban parks require rangers to get M16 training. Evidently a few years back a backcountry ranger at Zion national park was held at gunpoint, disarmed and humiliated by some anti-federal "Militia" members. I would categorize these folks as domestic terrorists.
