Im not a warden but have become friends with quite a few. Hunting time for them is ok, there are other things I would suggest if you were looking for a lot of time to hunt. Not sure about their pay scale but my guess is you are looking at starting around 35-40k. You need to major in Fish and Wildlife biology, after that you will go to about a 6 month training program much like the police academy. Also don't expect to stay in one spot, or be able to choose where exactly you want to go, especially right away, gotta work up to that. If you were looking for a lot of time to hunt and an awesome job, look into becoming a biologist with the USFWS. Really close friend of mine is a biologist at Clarance Cannon refuge, he gets paid good, has a lot of time off to hunt, and one of the coolest jobs around. Also make sure you mind your P's and Q's one infraction and you are done.
