I have a question about being a Game Warden/outdoor careers?

Im looking into career choices and im tore between- Game warden, park ranger, diesel mechanic, small engines mechanic, and automotive mechanic. I want a job that I like to do and Game wardens make good pay and its something id like to do ( can you beat patrolling Minnesota lakes in winter on snowmobile, summer in the boat, patroling snowmobile trails and all the other fun outdoor things?) But i read an article about the "common 10 hour days", i think game warden is a 7 day a week job and i would like time off during deer and duck season. So how much would one work, and how to get into this? I ask because one game warden for my county stopped by my fishouse last year on a week day and then again a month or so later on sunday. so it seems he works 7 days a week

Gregg has a point. it wont be all snowmobiles and boats. it will be DUI's and crackheads and domestic violence and traffic accidents and all sorts of things. as far as wanting time off, when the hunting seasons are open, thats when you are your busiest at work. there are no set hours or days. in fact you can count...
