Most Common Question People Have:

How do I become a Game Warden?


We require a bachelor degree in one of several areas that you can find on our web page.   It will probably help your chances of getting hired if you have a degree related to wildlife or some sort of experience working with wildlife.   After your degree you will have to attend 5 months of basic law enforcement training at the New Mexico Department of Public Safety Training Academy.  


Other than that there's nothing to it!
