I looked it up and it seems like it's harder to get a job with the game commission than it is getting a job with Philly PD. And whats the differance between a conservation officer and a game warden? Thanks.
Should paintball be recognised by the sports council as a sport(UK)?
The requirements vary from state to state. You would need to check with the Department of Natural Resopurces or its equivalent in your state to find what the requirements are. Most, if not all, states are now requiring a degree in a field such as game management, law enforcement, biology, etc. In Texas there are so many applications for each opening that they are only taking applicants who have, in addition to their degrees, prior law enforcement experience. Many of the successful applicants have Masters degrees. You are correct when you say that it is difficlut to get these jobs. The fact is that the job of Conservation Officer (or Game Warden) is not only the most difficult law enforcement job to get, it is also the most dangerous law enforcement job. If it is something that you really want and you want it badly enough to put in the work that it requires, then get your education, do some volunteer work for the department and keep your application up to date while you get some law enforcement experience. Hang in there 'cause is no easy job to get.

What is the controversy over ETJ being flushed from the Broad River in Lake Lure, NC?
Not sure about PA specifically but here goes:
There are some colleges that have specific degrees aimed at this career. Most DNR's do not require specific degrees but some type of degree is recommended. I suspect that is it easier to get a job with a big city PD because of the numbers. There are more police officers in Philly than there are game wardens in the whole state.probably by a big number.
Good Luck! I admire your potential career choice.
