Some people become game wardens because they like the
outdoors and enjoy being around sportmen and nature lovers.
These are likely to be the "good" ones. Others are primarily law
enforcement people who find themselves in the positon for a variety
of reasons, and not always good reasons either. I bet that's where
the Rambo types come from. They are not conservationists -
they're policemen. Probably, in order to run a good department,
you need both types.
