Congratulations to the 2012 Maine State Game Warden of the Year, Daniel Carroll Jr, who lives in Sebec and patrols the Brownville area!  Warden Carroll was presented the Shikar Safari Club Wildlife Officer of the Year Award during the Warden Service's annual awards banquet at the Winslow VFW yesterday.

Dan Carroll became a deputy game Warden back in 1985, and then a full Warden in 1987.

We've seen Dan on the popular reality program "North Woods Law" on the Discovery network.  If I remember right, Dan is the Warden who takes special pride being out in the field, and has never had aspirations for a desk job.  I believe that he said, "I've reached the top of the bottom", and he's happy in doing so!

Thanks to Warden Dan, and all the others who were presented awards yesterday for protecting our great state and all of its inhabitants, both two and four legged!

By the way, "North Woods Law" is on the Discovery Network tonight at 10PM.
