Jim Job, North Dakota Game and Fish Department district game warden stationed in Devils Lake, is the state’s 2016 Wildlife Officer of the Year. Job was honored recently by the Shikar-Safari Club International, a private conservation organization that annually recognizes outstanding wildlife officers in each state.
In a nomination letter sent to Shikar-Safari, chief warden Robert Timian said Job’s district is home to some of the most renowned fishing and hunting opportunities in the nation.
“Warden Job’s hard working efforts do not go unnoticed throughout his district,” Timian said. “Whether he is on patrol by vehicle, boat, all-terrain vehicle or snowmobile, his dedication and enthusiasm for his chosen profession as a game warden serves as an excellent example to others. He is most deserving of this recognition.”
