LINCOLN, Neb. — -(AmmoLand.com)- Conservation Officer Scott Brandt of Gering recently received the Shikar-Safari Club International's 2008 Nebraska Wildlife Officer of the Year award.
A conservation officer since 1983, Brandt is described by Law Enforcement Division District I Supervisor Jim Zimmerman as being “one of the most consistent officers I have in the district and one of the most active officers every year.”
Zimmerman said Brandt is an accomplished investigator and has been successful in a large variety of game cases. “A couple of years ago he was the lead investigator of a commercial waterfowl outfitter in Scotts Bluff County that resulted in one of the bigger, if not the biggest, waterfowl cases in the history of the agency.”
In addition to his law enforcement functions, he has been active in public relations activities, has sponsored a youth waterfowl hunt, has taken several kids on their first waterfowl hunts, is an active member of Platte River Basin Environments and has helped in the acquisition and development of thousands of acres of public access lands in the Scotts Bluff County area.
