BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A district game warden with the North Dakota Game and Fish Department is being honored as the state’s wildlife officer of the year.

Blake Riewer has been presented with the honor from the Shikar-Safari Club International, a private conservation group.

Riewer is stationed in Grand Forks. The department says he was nominated for the award because he “promotes safety by working diligently to be in the right place at the right time.”

Chief warden Robert Timian says Riewer constantly takes on extra duties and tries to improve his skills and tactics.

Each year, the conservation group sponsors an award for the wildlife officer of the year in all 50 states and 10 Canadian provinces.
