Sure, there are cases that support warrantless searches, but in the case of administrative searches only in situations that have a strong public interest (and usually only in the 'immediate health and safety of others' context), and no cases that would support a wildlife official conducting a warrantless search of your property for no other reason than the regulation says they can, without showing the existence of some exigent circumstance. If some wildlife officer came to my house demanding to search my property just because of the language of the regulation I would absolutely refuse him entry unless he came back with a warrant.
