Local game warden named TPWC officer of the year

Texas Game Warden Dyke McMahen was presented Jan. 26 with the Shikar Safari Officer of the Year by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission. Nominated by his supervisor for outstanding service in the line of duty, McMahen shares a passion for conservation, youth outreach and criminal investigation.
McMahen’s 30-year career in the field culminated with receiving the Shikar Safari Officer of the Year award. Known for his positive attitude and wildlife expertise, McMahen’s work ethic often makes him the district’s “go-to.”
“There is no one more willing to go the extra mile for fellow officers or members of the public than Warden McMahen,” said Capt. Lacy Loudermilk.
“Recently, he assisted the Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association with felony theft and illegal hunting cases. Numerous stolen cattle, horses, trailers and tack were recovered. Warden McMahen’s dedication to community and officer trust sets a precedent throughout the state.”
