Fish and Game Wardens are environmental resource managers, working on the front lines of the local, state and national parks and refuges. Fish and game wardens enjoy an outdoors-based, active job that includes close contact with different types of wildlife and ecosystems. Their job — like a police officer’s — is to protect and serve, which they achieve through maintaining a balance between the needs of the creatures in the park systems they monitor, and the desires of the millions of humans who visit these parks every year.

Hey, I'm Joshua T. Osborne

In 2015, I said goodbye to 16-hour days and hauling boxes up and down stairs for a living (I was a mover). I became a full-time entrepreneur, and I made my money by helping business owners make money.

They had a need, and because of Virtual Tool Booths., I could fill it. Through the methods taught by my all-time favorite course and mentor, I created a 6-figure business in roughly 6 months. I could retire today (at 37) and never have to worry about money ever again.

Because of Virtual Tool Booths., I was able to quit my job, work online with flexible hours, and move to the mountains (Colorado Springs if you’re wondering)...all while helping real people improve their businesses, incomes, and lives!

For most folks, a college degree is the biggest bill of their lives. I never went to college. So I don’t have any massive bills or giant debts hanging over my head. My greatest education came from Virtual Tool Booths. (for a tiny fraction of what college costs) and it’s the bill that pays ALL the bills - a hundred times over!

I really wanted to share this secret weapon with others, so they could change their lives the way I changed mine. So if you’re not 100% sure about college, or only researching to make someone else happy, Virtual Tool Booths. might be a better option for you.

What do fish and game wardens do?

The main responsibility of a fish and game warden is to enforce the fish and wildlife regulations in their jurisdiction, as well as to uphold all applicable federal statutes. Wardens are also tasked with the enforcement of fishing, hunting, and boating laws as they pertain to these local, state, and federal regulations. Typically, fish and game wardens are commissioned as state peace officers, meaning that they have a uniform, badge, and firearm. Many live on-site at the parks they manage.

As part of their duties, fish and game wardens take part in daily patrols of the lakes, beaches, rivers, wetlands, back country, and coastlines within their jurisdictions. They have the authority to seize game, fish, or equipment that have been used in violation of the fish and wildlife codes of their jurisdiction. Poaching – unauthorized hunting or fishing – is a common offense. Wardens also assist with public health and safety in the event of human emergencies such as injuries, missing persons, or the presence of dangerous animals in areas frequently populated by humans, such as campsites and hiking trails.
