Texas Game Wardens responded to an Army National Guard helicopter crash on March 8 in Starr County. Game wardens have since turned the site over to investigators but were on scene immediately following the crash to render aid and secure the site. A game warden Unmanned Aircraft Systems Program operator mapped the site with a drone and provided footage to investigators. Our thoughts are with those affected and their families.
