The article discusses the duties of Conservation Officers in the U.S. The work of Conservation Officers is often hard and stressful, and one of their most important duties is to ensure the laws protecting the wildlife and other natural resources are enforced equitably. In South Dakota, the vast majority of the land is privately owned. The Conservation Officers must enter private land to check hunters, fishermen and other users of natural resources. In the past, legislation was introduced to prevent Conservation Officers from freely checking sportsmen on private land but the legislation was defeated. Now, some legislators are planning to reintroduce the bill.
