What is a Fish And Game Warden?

A Fish And Game Warden is a specialized type of Wildlife Enforcement Officer. Also known as: Conservation Officer.

A fish and game warden is assigned a territory and enforces fish and game regulations and laws. He or she also has to responsibly carry and use a government issued firearm, and has the authority to arrest any violators. Whatever equipment and game related to the infraction can be seized by the warden.
