Interview the Bailey’s and career advice

Please interview Texas game Wardens Chelsea and Ben Bailey. Can you also interview Lauren IIles, and Carmen Rickel? I love watching them on lone star law. I want to hear about the Maryland game wardens too, preferably coastal wardens. Please bring more women on the show.

Also, what would your advice be to someone who wants to apply for a cadet program but doesn’t have any hunting or fishing experience? Should I go be a trooper first and get some experience in the hunting and fishing side? I love running, hiking, kayaking and being outside in general. I also want to have a job that allows me to interact with people and care for the beautiful world and species God has blessed us with. Just a side note, I’m outgoing and friendly but I’m pretty direct. I literally have no issue asking someone if they are sick or getting all up in everyone else’s business. I’m pretty sure I’ll either go to the eastern shore in Maryland or leave my state all together. If I want to be a coastal game warden what degree should I take. I’m in highschool and will be starting college in the spring. I have to choose between general studies or starting my associates degree
Thanks
