NEW GAME WARDENS

We will keep updating and changing the Game Wardens featured in the Meet Your Game Wardens Page.


TREVOR MEADOWS - CHEYENNE GAME WARDEN - The Department added a new senior game warden position based on the city's growing population and increasing wildlife-related workload. Meadows will not be responsible for a specific game warden district, but will have a diverse set of duties. He will work closely with Cheyenne District Game Warden Mitch Renteria to address local workloads and will assist with the Access Yes program in southeastern Wyoming. His responsibilities also include issuing falconry permits, and helping administer the game warden exam when the department needs to hire new game wardens. Meadows will work out of the Cheyenne Game and Fish office and will keep office hours a couple days each week to assist the public with requests such as Hull Identification Number (HIN) inspections and Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) inspections for boats.

Originally from Modesto, Calif., Meadows graduated from Humboldt State University in 2011 with a bachelor's degree in wildlife biology and management. While in California, he worked as a restoration biologist for the non-profit group River Partners. He was responsible for designing, planting and monitoring large habitat models. He excelled at habitat work and was quickly promoted, but his lifelong dream of becoming a game warden finally led him to Wyoming.

He joined Game & Fish in the summer of 2016 as a crew member on the statewide Habitat and Access crew. He spent that summer installing an irrigation pipeline on Wick Wildlife Habitat Management Area. He later moved into a game warden position in Casper in December 2016.

He is excited about his new position and finally achieving his goals of becoming a game warden. "The biggest challenge of this position is that I'll be wearing a lot of different hats," he said. "I'll be working a lot with landowners, working with the public on law enforcement, working on permitting, working with falconers, and helping with everyday game warden duties. But that diversity is the best thing about the position," he said.

Meadows is a huge outdoor enthusiast and enjoys backpacking, hiking, hunting, fishing and spending time with his dog.



LUKE MAY - TORRINGTON GAME WARDEN - The Laramie Region of the Wyoming Game and Fish Department welcomes Luke May as the new senior game warden in Torrington. He replaces Rob Hipp, who transferred to Greybull.

May was born in Jackson and is a fifth-generation Wyoming native. Like many employees at the Game and Fish Department, he grew up hunting and fishing with his father and grandfather. He graduated from Jackson High School and attended the University of Wyoming, where he earned a bachelor's degree in Zoology in 2014.

Prior to starting with Game and Fish, he worked for a rangeland consulting company and also raised trumpeter swans with the Wyoming Wetlands Society. He completed a fellowship for the Wyoming Chapter of the Wildlife Society, where he worked alongside Wyoming game wardens. He began his Game and Fish career in December 2016 as a game warden in Sheridan, focusing on watercraft enforcement at Keyhole Reservoir.

May is looking forward to the challenges of his new position. "I want to develop relationships with the community and meet as many people as possible," he said. "I also want to work to protect and conserve the wildlife in Goshen County." He encourages residents in his community to contact him with any questions or to call the Stop Poaching Tip Line at 1-877-WGFD-TIP to report any wildlife violations. May lives in Torrington with his dog, Atlas.
