A bachelors degree in Natural Resources, with 24 credits in Natural Resources.
What limited scope.
Some Liberal from Berkeley with a Bachelor Degree in Natural Resources made this the qualifying expertise? No other kind of Bachelor Degree, or Associates Degree with military experience is qualified, or can learn how to do this job? I guess they don’t have an academy or any training in Kansas. Just can’t do that job of Game Warden without that Natural Resources College Degree.
