    I just read that Phil Kiner is the new game warden in Saddlestring, Wy. He is apparently taking over Joe Picketts district.

    I kind of enjoy Box's books too. If you live in the state all your life like I have, its amazing how many names or people you recognize in them.

    oleolliedawg- Shame on you. I also know Phil. A more serious question. It seems that most hunters do not like poachers, but many also do not like Game Wardens. Is there something incongruous about this?

    I think game wardens have gotten a bad rap.
    Most are like anyone else; just trying to do their job.-Jerald

    oleolliedawg- I was just poking a little fun at you. When I saw Phil in Florida, I thought he was walking a little better. After he shot 100 straight in a handicap event, he seemed to walk even better.

    Pat, you know how sensitive I am about a little ribbin'. I personally don't care how nice a person Phil is but if he keeps breaking those hundreds I'm gonna learn to hate him soon!!

    Most Game Wardens probably grew up hunting and fishing, but now cannot hunt and fish much anymore.....so they take up a new outdoor sport.....catch the hunter or fisherman on absolutely ANY technicality, no matter how small, or insignificant.

    We had one tear our truck apart for 2 hours last fall waterfowl only to find a very rusty trap shell in the bottom of a moldy clothing bag in my buddies truck... he had us under light until 2 am. Most of them don't seem to be the sportsmans friend anymore. I can see being hard nose to poachers but giving the average Joe hunter trying to play by the rules a bad time is not right.

    I am sure Phil is one of the good one's as he is a gentleman in sport.

    Like all in this life of ours. There are a few in the game enforcement business that are total a--'s. But buy and large the largest percentage are really dedicated individuals. Sometimes they may appear to be rude or intolerant, but if you and I had to put up with they B.S. they do, we would probably much indignant. Support these fine people and the next time you meet one thank him/her for the efforts in our behalf. - Jim Elliott

    A friend,(Jim), of mine was fishing and the Warden (who he thought was a friend) pulled up in his boat to check Jim out, checked his license ,checked his life vest and asked where is the "throwable" life preserver, Jim said his kid must have taken it out but what's the difference I'm alone,who would I throw it to or who would throw it to me? $80.00 fine.

    Ok I know they all got a job to do even my best friend used to be a county deputy now he is a campus security because the pay is a lot better and the benefits are better plus it is a lot less dangerous to boot.

    Myself I have never had a disere to be any of them but my neighbor had a son in law that was a game warden and was killed in the line of duty forgot what happened but I guess some hunters want's to shoot anyone that want's to enforce the law.

    Also there are a lot of cop's and other official's that like to use the badge to be in charge of every thing.

    I have no clue on what type of person my neighbor's son in law was but still it wasn't a reason to get killed over.

    Before the rumor gets out of control let me explain.


    C.J.Box writes a fictional series set in Wyoming. The hero is game warden Joe Pickett. http://www.cjbox.net/about-joe-pickett . Joe is a combination of Columbo, A Mountie, Roy Rogers and Barney Fife. In the first Joe Pickett novel, he was in trouble with his bosses because he had given the governor a ticket for fishing without a license.


    One of the interesting features of these books is that many of the “fictional” events and characters hit very close to home (if you are a Wyomingite). Additionally, in every book there will be characters that have a live namesake.


    Phil Kiner was mentioned in one of the novels as a game warden that had go do a job. It was a one page mention and the character never surfaced (in that book) again. He has shown up one time since with a son that was a brat.


    Getting named in a C.J. Box novel has become a “big deal” around Wyoming. At a recent fundraiser for the Cheyenne Animal Shelter Chuck donated “getting your name in the next Joe Pickett novel” as an live auction item. It sold for $1600.00 and we sold 2 at that price.

    No, I did not pay to get my name in the book. Chuck’s locker at the YMCA is two doors down from mine and I regularly see him at noon workout. The first time my name was in a book I did not know it was going to happen.
