You are so right Cathy! When I was on patrol with a neighboring Sheriff's Department, Texas Game Wardens would often be the first to help us corral loose livestock or remove an uninvited gator from someone's property. As Texas Peace Officers, they are some of the best trained and most caring folks who wear a badge! Thank You for remembering them this Thanksgiving!

And they have their own TV show “Lone Star Law”. Take that “Yellowstone”.

Lone Star Law is very worthy of anyone's time!
