In my experience, I've never seen a KDFWR LEO on any of the nat'l or State forests that I've been on during regular modern gun seasons.
I've noticed that part before, and just ignored it. Who seriously goes into any woodland with an unloaded, encased sidearm? what do they want you to do when a bear comes charging? throw the case at them and play dead? Sorry, bear's aren't stupid, lol.
