Game Warden FAQs (Daily Life Edition)

What kind of schedule do Game Wardens work? Texas Game Wardens work a 40 hour work week.  The difference between wardens and other peace officers is that wardens set their own schedules and have the option to work a continuous 8 hour shift, split their work day into morning and night patrol, or work fewer hours on one work day and compensate for them by working more hours on another work day, within their 28 day work schedule.

What’s an average day like for a Texas Game Warden? There really is no average day for a warden. Work day responsibilities vary from season to season, patrol area, weather conditions and public demand.  This means a warden can do everything from patrol a deer camp, search for a missing person on the river, respond to an Operation Game Thief poaching call, and do a youth program all in the same day.

What’s the best thing about being a Texas Game Warden? Being a warden requires a great amount of public involvement, so becoming a game warden means you truly become a role model in your community and have the ability to make a positive impact in local youth, public safety and wildlife conservation for many years to come.
