Gooser... I'm doing the same thing now. if you want to work with waterfowl, you should do as i. get a specific degree. It's REAL hard to get a job donig it to. Thus i'm going straight for my doctrine degree. It will give me a advantage on the rest of the field as I will be getting "experience " while working toward being Dr. greenster. You will need a HUGE emphasis in Ornithology.
Please note, for the time and the stuff you learn. Its not worth the pay. But I'm doing it because it what I love. I should have 5 degree's by the time I graduate. which will be about 6 years. Associates of Fine arts, B.S wildlife management, B.S Forest management and soils. Masters Wildlife management. And what ever doctrine is affiliated best at the time for my career goal.
If your wanting to be a officer, like a GW you will need, some sort of LAW degree and a biology minor wouldn't hurt. but then lots of training.
Best way to work with purely waterfowl is a biology degree, and a WIDE variety of science classes.
Pm if you need anything...
BTW find a good school for that.
