Can you not pick up on sarcasm? Obviously they work for kdfwr or it wouldn’t just sit there. But yes, I always wanted to work for kdfwr. That’s why I work as an EMT.

Also, I don’t make a whole lot of money. Some cities they do pretty well for themselves. As they should. I guess I need to change my screen name now, as you have to something that is better fitting for who I truly am.
Don't worry about what others think of your job. Someone has to do it. If the job you are at is what you want to do then go for it.

I appreciate the service you provide for your community. I feel you deserve to be paid a better than average wage, for your efforts. On the other hand I believe fish and wildlife officers are being paid salaries that would be better spent if they were going in the bank accounts of folks like yourself and other law enforcement agencies.

I think that co,s are too few and far between to make any significant difference, and there is much more deadly and serious crimes our law enforcement should have there resources focused on.

Around here you would be hard pressed to get in contact with a co with out knocking on there door or running into them at Walmart.
I bet if you ask a CO their cell phone number that they would give it to you.

I've only had one bad experience with CO's and they still let me off the hook.

CO's more often than not have been called because someone else doesn't understand the laws and thinks I'm breaking them. The CO's came and issued the people who called fines on most occasions.

Foster, KY, USA.
I have been hunting and fishing all my life, I am 36 and have had a co check my fishing liscense twice. Never have I once been checked hunting. I have a co that lives about 3 miles north of me and one about a mile and a half south of me. I seldom see there fish and wildlife vehicles leave their driveway.

But the one officer I see regularly mowing grass, hauling cedar logs he cuts, he helped a guy dig septic systems for a while. And owns and operates a small store/processing business.
So you mush live out by me (Pendleton/Bracken area). The one who owns the store is a super good guy, but yeah, I can't remember the last time I've seen him on duty.
I've only been checked twice while fishing, never while hunting. One was very professional and the other was a pair and they were both immature a$$holes. I had cut my finger at work and had some stitches in it so I had it covered with one of those finger protector things (looks like a little condom) and one of them kept laughing and cutting jokes ("what are you doing down here by yourself with a rubber on your fingers?") and stuff like that. He just kept going on and on. Now if it was my buddies, it would have been funny, but it was very uncomfortable and unprofessional for them to do it.

Speaking of that. Wonder why you have to call state police dispatch to even get in contact with one? Why doesn’t the KDFWR handle their own calls? Maybe making the law enforcement division of the Dept a part of KSP is the best solution to getting more officers and better pay for them.

KSP would turn the WMA’s into private training grounds for search and rescue. Then make all the public gun ranges private. At least somebody would be doing maintenance and upkeep on those areas then.

I know the one who owns the store even owns a bed and breakfast from what I have heard, been hooking up out of state hunters with leases putting them up, processing there kills and feeding them in the restaurant!
Alot of people are really down on his processing including me!
Got shorted very bad on a deer last yr and will never take another one there.
Very friendly guy and has done his job very professionally from my interactions over the yrs but has ruffled alot of feathers bringing in out of staters to make money off of!

KSP, CVE (Commercial Vehicle Enforcement) and KDFWR CO's are all dispatched out of each respective Post. That changed several years ago.
