Warnke will oversee the development and coordination of a specialized team dedicated to recruitment, retention and reactivation of hunters, anglers and trappers - a priority within the DNR and conservation agencies nationwide. Warnke will remain in the Madison DNR office, where he has served as the hunting and shooting sports coordinator since 2011. Warnke also guided the state's big game program for seven years. His first full-time job with the DNR included hunter recruitment programs during the 1990s.

Warnke's previous work experience includes common loon research, farmland wildlife research legislative aide and leading the state's upland wildlife program. Warnke graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the University of Minnesota.

"As a Wisconsin native, I respect and believe in the state's outdoor traditions and believe these can touch every citizen - either directly or enjoying the outdoors with family and friends," Warnke said. "And that direct connection can be through sustainable natural resources to be enjoyed generation after generation, and eating healthy foods harvested from the state's landscape and waters."
