I think the reason that my kayak got a closer look at the Wyoming station is that it had last been on the Colorado River in Arizona (Glen Canyon Dam to Lees Ferry) and Arizona is apparently a "high risk" state. I've just found it curious that the Idaho check station folks never even look at my raft.

I always get the stickers for every state that requires them, display them as directed, and stop at all stations. Ive got no problem with doing that. The check stations are mostly at rest areas and I'm stopping for a pee break anyway, so no biggie.

In the big picture, paying attention to aquatic invasive critters is a good thing for boaters. Most states have a reasonable program and you can buy a sticker for a few bucks. I get pissed off when it costs me $85 to get my power boat inspected so it is legal to take on Lake Tahoe.

But the basty craftards don't tell you that at the check points.
We got cheeked on 90 in Wyoming and Montana last week. The guys in WY just did a walkaround but MT practically did TSA style cavity searches.
Neither one gave us stickers, just papers. We also drove through both Dakotas and Minnesota without being checked. We paddled in MN but didn't buy licenses. That's probably where they would check the boats.
