Evan Pittman is the Sr. Producer of “Wardens”, airing Mondays at 8:30 p.m. ET on Outdoor Channel. The show follows wildlife officers in Michigan and reveals the important work being done to safeguard our vital natural resources. Evan says the job of a Game Warden is difficult and the men and women who wear the badge are well trained and committed to the job. Working closely with the Michigan DNR, he says on “Wardens” they try to feature different stories that people are really interested in from wildlife and hunting, to fisheries and even forestry. In Michigan, there is a lot of outdoor recreation available with extensive access to water and fishing as well as hunting elk, bear, deer and more. These kinds of outdoor opportunities account for all of the different kinds of situations you see on the show. Evan says from an outside perspective of someone who follows and films these officers, for the most part, hunters and fisherman who find themselves crossing paths with game wardens are good people with no malintent. Many violations stem from sheer negligence of knowing the game laws. Because the burden to know and follow game laws falls strictly on hunters and anglers in the field, any unfamiliarity and violation of game and fish laws can result in encounters with game wardens. Someone may be using a hook that is too large and not know it, Evan says. From the simple to the complex, “Wardens” shows the different kinds of people, situations and violations that game wardens encounter.
