Many people don't know this! Luckily, most game wardens are friendly IF you are not committing a felony. I have had game wardens pop out of the woods in the most strangest places, too, but never a problem.
As far as felons and firearms, this is a very black-and-white issue. NEVER allow a felon near your firearms (like having him in your house if you don't have a safe) and don't ever put a weapon in his hands! You risk you becoming a felon and both of you getting further jail time.
It sounds cruel, but this is the exact scenario anti-gunners use to turn good people into criminals. Find ANYTHING to do that doesn't involve ANY weapon; Better safe than sorry for borh of you!
