Local game warden shines on the small screen

By  | 

FANNIN COUNTY, Tex. (KXII) -- Randolph McGee has been a game warden in Grayson and Fannin counties for 15 years, but he's no stranger to TV cameras.

The past three seasons, he's been featured on the reality TV show 'Lone Star Law' and he'll be back on the air this Sunday.

"Time flies when you're havin' fun," said McGee. "You know, our office is in the out of doors and I love it. We're dealing with people all the time, some, a lot of them good, some bad. That's why I like it. It's interesting all the time"

The show features McGee and a handful of other game wardens across Texas as they're on the job, protecting the state's more than quarter million square miles of wildlife.

"About three years ago Parks and Wildlife was approached by a group out of New York wanting to do game warden show and it all come about through that," he said. "A neat part of the show is that a lot of people ask if it's scripted. None of it is scripted. They're just riding with us and documenting what we're doing."

As for what's to come in the show this time around?

"From North Texas to down to the coast, to east Texas, you know, they're gonna be down there working shrimpers, working oyster boats and we're up here catching deer hunters and doing water safety checks," said McGee.

You can catch McGee in the season premiere of 'Lone Star Law' on Animal Planet Sunday at 9 p.m.
