Hi there Trevor,
I can answer this question with a little more insight as my partner has this job in Washington State.
I am not sure if you have looked into all the fundamentals about this job, as there are many steps into getting this position, but once you have made it, it does come with some pretty nice benefits.

In getting hired as a Fish and Wildlife Officer, or Game Warden you are rewarded with a lot of freedom (after the vast amounts of training you will go through). If you are able to jump through all the hoops and successfully get through training you will be in charge of your own schedule. Because one of the main jobs as a Wardens is to catch poachers you are able to work at time when you believe poachers will be the most active.

You receive medical insurance, a retirement plan, a take home vehicle, work wear, boots, binoculars, waterproof and sometimes snow proof clothing, access to boats, off road vehicles, 3 different types of guns, and a lot of other things that I am sure I am not listing.

This is a career of a lifetime with many officers loving it immensely, Though it is also highly competitive and takes a lot of work. The benefits very by state so you should look closer into the state you are interested in .

Hello,
Sorry not an expert in this area, but you can check out the following link. Benefits will likely be based on your geography.

Benefits
Game wardens receive many of the benefits afforded workers in all industries, plus a few more that are slowly disappearing or costing large amounts in other workplaces. However, specifics vary by jurisdiction. They receive paid holidays, vacation time, sick leave and overtime allowances. The state may pay for part or all of health, dental and vision benefits for game wardens and their families. Most agencies pay for a college degree related to the profession, and assign the warden several pieces of equipment, including a 4x4 vehicle, watercraft, computer, phone, digital camera and global positioning system. After working for a specified period of time and then retiring from the profession, wardens receive a pension that may combine both government-granted and contributory income.


Best wishes!

Josh’s Answer

Probably not exactly the answer you are looking for , but the benefit of having a job you love and going to work in an environment you enjoy would be the best benefits anyone could ask for. The other answer gave you the material side of the basic benefits. You would also have the benefit of being able to work in many different areas as there are parks and recreational areas across the country that employ people doing this type of work. You would be able to live in more rural areas where the cost of living is also more affordable in many cases as many of the areas being managed are away from cities.
