Earlier this year I asked the Maine Warden Service for the latest data on how they spend their time. Unfortunately, the most recent report was issued in 2013. Nothing since then. So that’s the report I obtained from them. The 53 page report is interesting and includes information about where their money comes from, trends in registrations and license sales, calls for service, and summaries of the work in each district.
But it’s how they spend their time that was of most interest to me. Here is that information:
28.5% Enforcement of hunting, trapping, and wildlife laws and rules
19.5% Enforcement of fishing laws and rules
8.4% Enforcement of watercraft laws and rules
