Some of you may know that i'm a government worker. I'm always telling people to come work for the state. Though you may hear things about how bad the state budget is, that we won't get paid, we will lose our job etc, for the most part its great to work for the state.

Im not in a wildlife field, and taking a wildlife job would be a huge pay cut for me, but I have been thinking about switching over and being a game warden. Game Wardens are peace officer status, so you get the great retirement of a cop.
The cut off date for the fish and game academy was a couple weeks ago, so i will have to wait on that, but there are other fish and game jobs open.

One im considering is Fish And Wildlife Technician.
You work in fish hatcheries with trout, catfish, salmon eggs etc.
Pay is not great $2,779.00 to $3,506.00 a month, but remember state workers get a pension and not a 401K, so that is a big deal, pension is the way to go! With the pension its equivalent to about $1000 more.

If you don't have any actual job related experience, the only other requirement would be Completion of one year of college with at least six semester units in the biological sciences.
If you went to college for a year, and took two science courses, you qualify!

So anyway, if you are thinking about a fish job, check it out.

interesting, that sounds very doable.

Here in florida it takes forever to become a game warden or fish and wildlife officer. It is one of the toughest jobs to get. they do not have that many positions, no idea why that is, and always have a ton of applicants. the requirements are pretty high too. you would think that a large state like florida would have a ton of these guys, but nope very few.


good luck to you.

For those of you in California who want to be a game warden the application for the academy is due November 16.
this is a peace officer position, 90% retirement is possible!
