Laramie - The Wyoming Game and Fish Department welcomes Matt Withroder as the new regional wildlife supervisor in Laramie. Withroder replaces Rick King, who was promoted to chief game warden earlier this year.
As the regional wildlife supervisor, Withroder will lead the law enforcement and game warden activities in the Laramie Region and manage the day-to-day activities of the regional office.
“I look forward to Matt’s leadership in the Laramie Region and I know he will work hard for the resource and those who care about Wyoming’s wildlife,” said Chief Game Warden Rick King.
“I am excited for the opportunities and challenges while working in within the Laramie region.  The Laramie region has an abundance of wildlife found throughout southeast Wyoming which offers a lot of opportunity for sportsmen. I am excited for the opportunity to assist our constituents with managing this valuable resource.”
Withroder comes from a ranching family in Halstead, Kansas. His lifelong passion with the outdoors, wildlife led him to earn a bachelor’s degree in wildlife biology from Fort Hays State University in 2005, and his love of the Rocky Mountain brought him to Wyoming.
“I always wanted to come out west to the Rocky Mountains and I was fortunate to land in Wyoming, it was the perfect fit for me” he said.
He graduated the Wyoming Law Enforcement Academy in 2005 and was assigned to Saratoga as a wildlife technician. He was promoted to game warden trainee in 2008 in Cheyenne, and promoted to the Newcastle Game Warden district in 2010, transferring to Casper as the Regional Access Coordinator in 2011.
