It's possible that an undercover sting operation was staged. North Woods Law and the Maine Warden Service came under fire after the Portland Press Herald/Maine Sunday Telegram reported that the show's major undercover sting operation was actually manufactured. The newspaper reported that it was given proof of this fact by an unnamed source within the Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife.
They also reported that interviews were conducted with people who said they had been hired to be on the show but never filmed. Further reports stated that some participants were paid $500 to $5,000 for their roles on the program.
North Woods Law has been canceled but there are plans to bring back a revised version in January 2015. Whether or not this new version will include any type of actual fishing remains to be seen.
North Woods Law followed actual game wardens from the Maine Warden Service in the state of Maine, USA, for the first seven seasons. North Woods Law has been tracking the operations of the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department since 2017.... The show currently airs on the National Geographic channel.
Did you know that your Northern Light II Telescope sight picture is fixed? Yes, it is true that once you fix your telescope's sight picture, it will not be able to be changed unless you take the lens cover off. Once exposed, the telescope will see everything exactly as it is placed within its field of view. The telescope maker usually includes a small keyhole-shaped hole at the center of the dome lid for viewing purposes while standing outside the observatory. This is called the alt-az mode sight picture and is used when looking through the telescope's main objective (the glass window that faces into the telescope's barrel).
The second sighting method used with telescopes is called the worm gear drive system. In this case, there are two mirrors inside the telescope's casing that can move independently of each other. One mirror is called the alt-az mirror and it can rotate around its axis to adjust the angle at which it sees things. The other mirror is called the worm gear mirror and it can also rotate around its axis to adjust the angle at which it sees things.
3. Public whipping was the punishment for hunting in the woods. If you caught fire while trying to shoot game, you were sentenced to be publicly whipped and then banished from the town where you burned down the courthouse.
Officials at American DeForest had engaged in some of the same stock selling excesses that had occurred at American DeForest, and as part of the United States government's crackdown on stock fraud, de Forest and four other company officials were arrested and charged with "use of the mails to defraud" in March 1912. De Forest eventually pleaded guilty and was fined $10,000.
In addition to being a pioneer in radio technology, Lee De Forest was also a prominent investor and businessman in the early years of the electric light industry. He founded DeForest Radio Company in 1906 and over the next several years developed many successful consumer products, including the Audion microphone which used magnetic induction to convert audio signals into electrical current for amplification and playback. The DeForest Radio Company was the first to provide radios for consumers at prices they could afford. In 1913, DeForest sold his interest in the company to Western Electric for $1 million in cash and WESTERN shares worth $15 million.
Lee De Forest's arrest and conviction for mail fraud caused a public relations nightmare for his family business. His father, John De Forest, who was president of American DeForest at the time of his son's arrest, resigned shortly thereafter. The company's reputation was destroyed and it went out of business a few months later. However, American DeForest did not commit suicide; it was taken over by new management who moved its operations to Tennessee where the DeForest name remains popular among radio enthusiasts today.
Hunting coyotes and foxes in California is only permissible on private hunting grounds if the owner permits it. Hunting is prohibited in some public locations. Although night vision is permitted, any electronic viewing device that employs infrared or light-amplifying circuitry is forbidden. Night hunting is legal in Colorado. It is not legal in Wisconsin nor West Virginia where it is banned statewide.
Shooting deer in the dark is illegal in most states because they assume you are trying to protect your property from damage or loss and killing these animals unnecessarily violates this principle. However, some hunters do use headlamps and lasers on their vehicles during nighttime hunts to help find their prey. These devices are allowed under state law in some states so long as you follow certain regulations (for example, you cannot point them at other people's headlights).
In general, if you are out hunting at night then you should carry a flashlight. The more powerful the better since it will allow you to see further away. Be careful not to shine the beam of your light into others' eyes though since this is also against the law in some states.
There are three ways to legally kill a deer: with a rifle, shotgun, or crossbow. If you want to be sure not to break any laws, then a licensed hunter should be able to guide you through the process.
