Lander Game Warden is Wyoming's top wildlife officer of 2014

1/27/2015

CHEYENNE - Those who hunt, fish and enjoy the outdoors around Lander may already know Wyoming Game and Fish Department Game Warden Brad Hovinga. He has earned a reputation as someone who works hard and puts in the extra time to serve the public. All of this has led to national recognition. Hovinga was named the “2014 Wildlife Officer of the Year” for Wyoming, an award given out annually in every state and Canadian province by the Shikar-Safari Club International.

“A Game Warden’s job involves much more than law enforcement and Brad embodies that,” said Chief Game Warden Brian Nesvik. “Brad is an excellent communicator and that shows in how he engages with the public and in how he takes an interest in training with other wardens and biologists. It is an honor to have him on our team.”

Hovinga’s colleagues complimented him for his professionalism and for the broad range of public outreach activities he supports.

“Whether it is talking to ten-year olds with passion about wildlife, collaborating with hunters and conservationists on strategies to benefit mule deer, or mentoring new hunters and anglers in our Forever Wild Families program, Brad has stepped forward. These efforts are all deeply appreciated by the residents of this community,” Lander Region Wildlife Supervisor Jason Hunter said.

Hovinga will receive an engraved silver plate and a contribution in his name for families of wildlife officers killed or injured in the line of duty.

The Shikar-Safari Club International is an organization dedicated to preserving wildlife through sportsmanship and conservation.
