Any sensible pennsylvania resident knows that you DO NOT MESS with DCNR/Park Rangers or what have you IN PA....

This does not mean State Police officers...

DCNR Officers dont NEED Probable cause... they need REASONABLE AMOUNT OF SUSPICION.....

Which means... if that was you who farted crosswind and his nose smelled it you are screwed....

So Dont mess with the nature freeks or they will * you Up!!

I have found DCNR officers hiding in the woods waiting to pounce on us for riding ATV's on state game lands.... those DiCkNR offices were sneaky but a little slow...lol.... but even when you think you are alone there is probably a Game warden or DCNR officer in a gilly's suit hiding in a tree watching you with binoculars... believe me .... Ive seen them
While this is straying a little from the original topic.... The Game Commission patrol the game lands. Rangers have jurisdiction over State Parks and State Forest land only. Act 141 (Municipal Police Jurisdiction Act) is limited by DCNR Regulations.

If you saw someone in a ghillie suit up a tree who was far enough away that he needed bino's to see you then it was a WCO not a Ranger, trust me the guys I work with (rangers) are neither young nor limber enough to be climbing trees myself included....

Regardless if what happened to the OP was right or wrong, if a LEO sees a handgun "printing", the handgun is obiviously concealed. Because a LTCF is required to conceal a handgun on your person (in most cases), dosen't that give the LEO the right to ask the person if they have a LTCF?

I haven't read the whole thread yet, but WCO's have LEO powers only while acting within the scope of their job (which is enforcing game laws). That can take place anywhere they suspect a game violation to have taken place, even on private property. They do not even need RAS for certain kind of stops.
I am not gonna do your research for you; you can believe it or not.

P.S. Are you related to WCO Bimber?

Same as she was not required to aswer his question. Neither was right in attitude. Neither displayed any candor. Just had a little image in my head. "cop: PUT YOUR HANDS IN THE AIR. GET DOWN ON THE GROUND ; ME: NO, YOU DONT HAVE THE RIGHT TO ASK ME IN THAT WAY. NOW SAY PLEASE OR IM NOT DOING IT" lol. picturing that with the southpark cop. lol.

CC without a valid LCTF is also illegal. No matter where you’re doing it.

And the leo must do a test on the drugs. Mabey it was cloves.

They are enpowered to enforce All laws game or other wise.

(relating to crimes and offenses) or any other offense classified as a misdemeanor or felony. The officer shall also have the power to serve and execute warrants issued by the proper authorities for offenses referred to in this paragraph and to serve subpoenas issued for examination. All powers as provided for in this paragraph will be limited by such administrative procedure as the director, with the approval of the commission, shall prescribe. The regulations shall be promulgated within 90 days of the effective date of this paragraph"

you can read what 18 Pa.C.s covers but it covers EVERY law.
