Maine Game Wardens Featured on Animal Planet Show ‘North Woods Law’
The Animal Planet kicks off it’s second season of ‘North Woods Law’ tonight at 10 pm. The show features Maine Game Wardens and this season, 2000 Cony High School graduate, Troy Thibodeau, will be one of the featured game wardens. Animal Planet will air 10 shows this season, starting tonight, and running through April.
A film crew followed Thibodeau, starting last summer, as he finished warden school and filmed him through his first hunting season last fall. He is based in Kingfield and is responsible for 10 townships.
Thidodeau tells the Kennebec Journal that “it’s one of the best jobs in the world.” He adds that he plans on watching the show with his wife, Samantha and their children, ages 3 and 10 months.
‘North Woods Law’ is shot entirely in Maine. The show follows wardens around the state and features the wardens as they search for missing persons, track illegal hunters, go on drug raids and free trapped animals. Episodes are recorded every season in the state and in every region of Maine.
The Maine Game Wardens are a part of a bureau within the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife.
