Forrest service jobs can be very rewarding especially on the firefighting end of things, pay can be good but benefits are mostly non exisant, Atleast for the beginning of your career.

weren't born with the word "pussy" on your forehead? go get a badge.

*being older I've become alot more respectful with the police, but as it turns out, they are the disrespectful ones. I respect people putting themselves in the line of fire, but so many of these pigs are just straight up bitches.

**fish and game is cool

wrathfuldeity I work in law enforcement....out in the woods...collecting wildlife....squirrls, butterflies, nuts, trolls and fairies, also the assorted swillers, floaters and crack heads. A little different than boss hog.

Around here you have better chance being a pro snowboarder than getting a benefited fish and forrestry job. And most folks that do the boss hog thing is via military experience.

I think the cops were offended. It was the same ones. The bar was pretty much empty, except for my dog and some other guy.
Refusing a breath test in Canada gets you a DUI charge.

JeffreyCH One of my brothers is a Ne. state park ranger, loves it....guess he better because it doesn't pay shit lol. I don't think they did much of a background check on him, just a regular pee test, and a check for felonies.

They enjoyed being able to be outdoors instead of stuck behind a desk or something all day. Benefits are pretty decent, and most of the guys I met at F&G needed those benefits. Never met one who got hurt on the job...but a few who messed themselves up on mountian bikes and other adventure sports. lol

They only thing is that with all law enforcement agencies (including DA), they do a VERY crazy background check. They can interview friends, family, former roomates, neighbors. They can and often do order polygraph as part of the entry process. Any talk of drug use (even if your state says MJ is legal, the feds dont agree and most law enforcement agencies have a no drug policy) or any other issues that pop up in a background check will disqualify you pretty quickly.

Steady pay, good benefits. I also know a few of the same kind of guys (love being outdoors) who went into the forestry service as firefighters. Might be something else to look into as well.
yea the biggest thing i worry about is the polygraph havent smoked in a while but i was a bit of a pothead in highschool. But hey most people have smoked pot. Talked to my cousin whos a cop he said they really only care if its been in the last two years. But forestry service sounds pretty cool but then id feel like im not really making a diffidence
