SIDNEY, Maine — Maine Game Wardens are actively recruiting the next generation of their workforce. It's in part because a third of current Maine Game Wardens will be eligible to retire in the next three to four years. 

While a college degree is not required, you must be able to pass a thorough background check and physical fitness test. Maine Game Wardens say the ideal recruit is someone who has experience hunting and fishing.
