USA -(Ammoland.com)- The 2017 Warden Stamp is now available for sale online and at California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) license sales offices statewide.

The design for this year’s fundraising stamp features a white sturgeon.

The stamps sell for $5 online.

Proceeds from stamp sales fund equipment and training for California’s wildlife officers and provide funding for special law enforcement programs, including CDFW’s K-9 program.

“From catching poachers to stopping polluters, wildlife officers put their lives on the line every day to protect California’s natural resources,” said Chief David Bess of CDFW’s Law Enforcement Division. “Displaying the warden stamp shows your commitment to conservation and ending poaching in California.”

The 2017 stamp is the seventh to be issued since the program was established in 2010.

Previous years’ stamps may also be purchased online.

It’s pitiful that sportsmen are being asked to give a financial crutch to DFW while denigrating the title Warden. I’d bet the money goes no where near a Warden, and likely goes to support some liberal pet project. How about this, disclose how they spent last year’s Warden Stamp money. CA has real high taxes and they wont even support their own agencies and programs. The Wardens work for much less than other LE officers in that State and now the Stare wants to use their honor to create a slush fund.

As a calif resident I was appalled to find that the money for hunting and fishing licenses goes to the general fund not where it should go to promote fishing and hunting.
Wanna guess what they do with the money.

As a gun owner please do not support this. I am totally against poaching as is every hunter I know, but these people view firearms owners as evil if you are carrying.
