I live in Oklahoma where a relative and I were fishing.
We are new to fishing and didn't know you needed a license. We got stopped and the game warden gave us two options: buy a temp license or get a ticket. We didn't have the $90 bucks so we got the ticket.
Then he said if we come back later that week and give him $50 for a temp license he will drop the ticket and we won't have to go to court.
We later got our license from a store and when we contacted him he said it doesn't matter: we either get the temp license from him or the ticket will process through the court.
He also said that the difference is that we didn't have the license beforehand. So we still got the citation but we're not sure how buying a temp license from him isn't the same?
Should we fight this in court?
