Kansas is so intent on filling five open game warden’s jobs that it’s publicly urging people who enjoy the outdoors to take the test necessary to get into the hiring pool.
The state Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism said Thursday it will take applications until Nov. 7 and administer the test Dec. 20 in Salina.
The department says people interested in becoming game wardens should contact the agency’s human resources section at its Pratt office or visit its website.
The department currently has 75 game wardens, with vacancies in Atchison, Jewell, Miami, Scott and Seward counties. The positions pay about $19 an hour.
