    First graduate from high school in the top 10% of your class focusing on the sciences. Next attend a four year college and double major in wildlife biology and police sciences, during these years do volunteer work for your local DFG. Next attend a police academy and again graduate in the top 10% of your class. After that apply at the fish and game commission of the state you live in or the state you want to work and live in and pray that there is an opening and that they will hire you. Try for scholarships as the pay for a game warden is very low in comparison to the private sector and to regular police officers. having all those student loans hanging over your head as a game warden would be very stressful. Big land owners sometimes have there own wildlife game managers and you could apply for these too.

    good luck to you

    Requirements to become a game warden and how you become a game warden depends on the agency that you want to work for. Visit the websites of the agencies that you might want to work for. Agency websites often provide information about their applicant requirements, about how to apply, and about their hiring process. You should consider getting a college degree if you don't have one. Getting a college degree is one of the best things that you can do. Many law enforcement agencies require or prefer applicants to have college. Having a degree could help you get hired by some agencies. Some agencies pay their officers more if they have a college degree. Having a degree could also help you get promoted during your career. Agronomy, animal science, biology, environmental science, fisheries/wildlife biology, conservation biology, forestry, forest management, natural resource management, range management, range science, agricultural science, zoology, ecology are some majors that you might want to consider. If you are interested in animals and/or the outdoors and law enforcement, you might want to also consider titles such as animal cruelty investigator, humane law enforcement officer, and park ranger. You might be interested in federal jobs such as Uniformed Law Enforcement officer for the United States Forrest Service or Special Agent, Wildlife Inspector for the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, or Special Agent for the Environmental Protection Agency. Consider local, state, and federal jobs. Best of luck!
