Retired California Game Warden


Game Warden’s & Biologists as Authors
& Game Warden Stories, etc…



Featured New Author

Mike Maschmeier, retired California game warden, has just published his first book. An American Possibility. It is available on Amazon as a paperback, hard cover or for your Kindle. Mike has also published several stories in the Spring and Summer issues of International Game Warden Magazine, including a book review. He’ll be a featured author in the winter issue of the Humboldt County Historical Society Magazine.

As Mike says, “I’ve written and published a memoir (Outskirts Press), AN AMERICAN POSSIBILITY which has as a large part of it, stories about my time as a game warden.”

I don’t know about you, but I always enjoy finding a new book by a fellow game warden. After 30 years on the job as a warden, I love reading other game warden’s stories.

Coming Soon!!! Another retire warden, Mike McBride, has just finished his book and sent it to the editor for their part of the job. Unlike many other retired wardens, Mike said that his book is a work of fiction, not another game warden story about their time on patrol. I am looking forward to seeing his new book.

My love started with “Tales of the Fish Patrol” by Jack London, and continues to this day.
