Washington County’s McBrine Named Maine Game Warden of the Year
Sarah Craighead Dedmon
Joe McBrine was hunting, fishing, and trapping before most people learn their state capitols, often racing off early before school to set traps along the Middle River, then checking them again at night. He was in the 5th grade when he first considered becoming a game warden, and it looks like he made the right decision. Last week the Maine Warden Service named McBrine the 2021 Maine Game Warden of the Year, honoring his commitment, skill, and 27-plus years of service protecting the people and wild places of Washington County.
