NASHVILLE, Tenn. -( Senior Conservation Officer Rob Brazie is an exemplary wildlife officer within the Idaho Department of Fish and Game.

For his dedication in creating the next generation of hunters and sportsmen, as well as his accomplishments in upholding the state’s game laws, he earned national recognition from the National Wild Turkey Federation.

The NWTF named Brazie as Wildlife Officer of the Year award at the 41st annual NWTF Convention and Sport Show in Nashville.

“I’m very honored to be the wildlife officer of the year, chosen out of all of the officers that were here,” Officer Brazie said. “The NWTF holds God, family and country in high regard, and I really appreciate their support of law enforcement officers across the country.”

The NWTF determined this year’s award winner based on how their work strengthens the organization’s Save the Habitat. Save the Hunt. initiative. Brazie embodies the traits that make an outstanding conservation officer.

Brazie, of Horseshoe Bend, Idaho, has been at the forefront of the wild turkey management in Idaho during his 26-year-career, helping to create the first turkey management plan in the state.

He worked with the NWTF and other partners to increase hunting opportunities along the Boise River for wild turkeys as well as introducing a split season to allow more people to hunt the growing turkey population without overloading landowners with too many hunters at one time.

“Officer Brazie’s dedication to our mission is heartfelt,” said George Thornton, NWTF CEO. “He exemplifies the spirit of our Save the Habitat. Save the Hunt. initiative, which is aimed at perpetuating conservation, our rich hunting heritage and our cherished outdoor lifestyle.”
