GLASGOW- Hunters and anglers out in the field this fall may see a new friendly face. Wyatt Pickens was recently hired as the Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks field warden in Glasgow. Pickens will be covering Valley County and sharing working the Breaks districts (631 and 632), Fort Peck Reservoir, and the Missouri River with Warden John Huberty.

Pickens, originally from Colorado, holds a bachelor's degree in Fish and Wildlife Management from MSU-Bozeman, where he was a Warden Trainee during his senior year. Prior to being hired in Glasgow, Pickens was the area warden in Forsyth for two years, serving Rosebud and Treasure counties, along with the Custer National Forest. In addition, he also worked as a Traveling Wild angler educator and was a communication and education intern in Region 6 for one summer.

"I'm excited to be working and living in northeast Montana," said Pickens. "I spent a summer here as an intern, and really liked the area, people, and outdoor opportunities. I look forward to being engaged with the hunters, anglers, and other outdoor recreationists in northeast Montana."

Pickens enjoys big game hunting and fishing, and partners in upland bird and waterfowl hunting with his Chesapeake Bay retriever, Pancho.
