No way the majority of us could get that job with the degrees needed and to be honest who would want to work with the WDFW ?

10 to 1 they already have someone hand-picked for the job. The announcement is a formality.

Many on here wouldn’t be qualified. Most likely they are looking for a transgender.  :dunno:

Looks like they are after a Bio type for Region 5.  As others said I imagine they are planning to hire internally but still have to advertise.  Link to posting:

If you shoot the first one you will never get that true trophy.

I can’t speak directly for WDFW but I’ve worked for IDFG and a number of other state and federal fish and wildlife agencies. I got a degree in wildlife ecology after my time in the military, and have worked a number of jobs that required my degree and paid $16-$18 an hour.

I can understand peoples frustration with state fish and wildlife agency’s, but know that some of us are diehard outdoorsman that are fighting the good fight. We only have so much power and reach on the bottom 2/3rds of the totem pole but we’re trying to represent our community as best we can.

Has nothing to do with trapping.  Have you seen the qualifications?
Here:
REQUIRED QUALIFICATIONS:

A Bachelor's degree in fisheries, wildlife management, natural resource science, or environmental science.
AND
Three (3) years of professional experience in one (1) or more of the following: Fish management or fish research. Wildlife management or wildlife research. Habitat management or habitat research. (Twelve semesters or eighteen-quarter hours of specific course work is required for certain positions).
OR , Two (2) years as a Fish & Wildlife Biologist 2.

They need a guy or gal that just came out of school.  Not one that has been in the field for 40 years and doesn't have a Bachelors Degree.
They need a young person so they can mold them.

I have tried Appling for jobs like this for USDA-APHIS-ADC years ago.  They don't need a trapper from the field, they need a book trained person.

Just my two cents.

I think it is age, and they wanted a Trainee.
Have a degree or 4
have 20 plus years experience
Even had WDFW people as references.............
