We will keep updating and changing the Game Wardens featured in the Meet Your Game Wardens Page.
John Pokallus grew up in Gillette and is excited to join Game and Fish close to home. He got his bachelor's from the University of Wyoming and earned his master's at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He participated in wildlife research on a wide variety of animals ranging from mice, voles, and martens, to deer, black bears, and porcupines across the United States. Pokallus most recently worked in Washington as a research scientist and realized how unique and rare Wyoming's wildlife and environmental resources are, and he wanted to be a
part of it.
Trevor Meadows graduated from Humboldt State University with a bachelor's degree and began work as a restoration biologist, designing and restoring degraded wildlife habitat, before joining the Wyoming Game and Fish Department. Meadows worked as a habitat and access technician before becoming a game warden. I'm excited to learn this area and work with the people and wildlife. Biology, wildlife and conservation are my passions and I'm looking forward to serving this community. From the mountains, river, lakes, sagebrush country and high prairie; this region has a little bit of everything. It's amazing to get to work with such a wide breadth of wildlife and habitat types.

Bagley looks forward to serving the people of the Sheridan Region and assisting with the conservation of this area's great wildlife resource.
Luke May was raised in Jackson, WY. He grew up hunting, fishing, backpacking, and camping with his family and friends. May graduated from UW in the spring of 2014 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Zoology.
