Stopped buying them couple years ago anyway.... nothing but a money grab to fund junk projects.

Has anyone ever got written up for not having one?

The first year a ticket was pretty common... access site check's where frequent... these days not so much...I don't know anyone that buys them anymore...no one I know has been ticketed....I'm more concerned about my truck getting stolen at a DNR site than getting a ticket.

And besides..there are ways around having to buy one..

They still write tickets at the state parks.  Or they will leave you a note to buy one before you leave the park or get cited.  Depends on which park.

All of the agencies still cite for it. Some areas are more "gun ho" about it then others. State Parks has enabled their non-law enforcement staff to write DP tickets as well.

Been checked in Capital forest by a rather grumpy guy (not sure what agency) and I got one ticket when parked at the Mt Si parking lot where I forgot to display it.  I contested it and they dropped the fine.

Just bought one today ......
We do a lot on statelands,fishing,hunting,whatever.
This is the second one I've ever bought.
I guess better to be legal these days.
I'm not happy about it.
PAY TO PLAY pisses me off.
Two birds in the Bush is always better than one in the hand-that way you can always go to the Bush and hunt another day .conservation=Better hunting.

I never buy any of that crap. What part of "Public land" does the State not understand? They view it as their land.

But I guess that we live in a State where the vast majority (both left and right) blindly follow what they are told to do (masks, permissions, etc).

Things won't change until you guys grow a set.

Iíve never bought one. Never received a ticket. Never used the state parks, except to park my camper @ potholes while duck hunting that area.

Pay to play is a good thing. The DP is a abomination to that payment philosophy.  DP has always been a money transfer between sportsmen and state park users. Rob Peter to pay Paul!
