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!
Edmund Burke: “The people never give up their liberties but under some delusion.”
– 1784 speech. Taken from Founding Fathers Notes
"In a State of Nature, it is true, that a Man of superior Force may beat or rob me; but then it is true, that I am at full Liberty to defend myself, or make Reprisal by Surprize or by Cunning, or by any other way in which I may be superior to him. But in Political Society ... if I attempt to avenge myself, the whole Force of that Society is ready to complete my Ruin."
-Edmund Burke, A Vindication of Natural Society (1757)
