08/01/2011 - For more than a century, the Wyoming Game and Fish Department has been looking out for Wyoming's premier wildlife resources. While the department began primarily to enforce hunting and fishing laws, its role has expanded dramatically. The Game and Fish is responsible for more than 800 species of fish and wildlife in the state, about 100 of which are considered game species that are pursued by hunters and anglers. We employ a dedicated, professional staff of more than 400 individuals across the state to help fulfill our mission of conserving wildlife, serving people.

Working for the Wyoming Game and Fish Department is a chance to have a fulfilling career surrounded by some of the most talented people in the wildlife and habitat conservation industry. For those in the wildlife business, working in Wyoming means working with some of the continent's most impressive wildlife and in some of the continent's most majestic settings.

It also means a casual work environment, competitive wages, flexible hours and career advancement opportunity. The Game and Fish is headquartered in Cheyenne, Wyoming, and we have regional offices and positions based in Casper, Cody, Green River, Jackson, Laramie, Lander, Pinedale and Sheridan. Some positions, such as game wardens or hatchery personnel, work in many other communities across the state.

There are many new challenges facing our wildlife continuing drought, energy development, invasive species, wildlife diseases and much more. The employees of the Game and Fish are tackling those problems and others head on. While the game warden wearing a red shirt checking hunters in the field is the image most people have of the Game and Fish, we have numerous career paths at the department. Some paths are hands-on, field-based positions such as fish and wildlife biologists, habitat biologists or game wardens. Other career paths focus on the business end of hunting and fishing, such as positions in accounting, customer service or information technology. Other career paths, such as positions in information or conservation education, are designed to help ensure hunting, fishing and Wyoming's outdoor heritage survive into the future. The department also has openings for temporary seasonal and intern positions every year. No matter what your interest or level of experience, there could be an opportunity waiting for you with our agency.
