Game Warden Retires

Posted: Updated:

GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - A game warden for North Dakota's Game and Fish Department is retiring.
    
62-year-old Gary Rankin is ending his 36-year career with the department.
    
Rankin has been the game warden in Larimore since 1977. He oversaw an area that covered about 3,000 square miles, including Grand Forks County and parts of Traill, Steele, Griggs, Walsh and Nelson counties.
    
Rankin says he believes today's hunters are better than when he first started on the job. He credits the Hunter Education Program for the improvement.
    
Paul Freeman is the northeast enforcement supervisor for Game and Fish in Devils Lake. He says he'll miss Rankin's ability to deal with people and treat them fairly, even when they're breaking the rules.
