Game Warden FAQs (Preparing to Become a Game Warden)

What are some things I can do to better develop my career path to become a Texas Game Warden?

Although there is no exact blueprint to the career path of a Texas Game Warden, and mandatory requirements can be viewed on our website at https://tpwd.texas.gov/warden/recruiting-careers/requirements, there are a few suggestions we can offer prospective applicants. 

Future applicants should consider all intern and volunteer opportunities through the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, in addition to volunteer opportunities in their own communities which involve animals, aquatics or law enforcement.  Potential applicants should also maintain a clean criminal history and an excellent driving record free of citations.  Lastly, by maintaining good physical fitness and a strong swimming ability, a candidate can better their ability to pass the physical readiness requirements and excel in the Game Warden Training Academy and throughout their career.
