DNR officers are typically hired by state governments.
DNR officers earn a median salary of $60,000 per year. The job outlook for DNR officers is expected to grow by 1% over the next decade, and this is primarily due to an aging work force of conservationists.
Dear Mr. / Ms. [Recruiter Name],
My name is [Your Name] and I am very interested in the DNR Officer position listed on the [Company Name] website. I believe that my extensive experience in conservation, law enforcement, and education makes me uniquely qualified for this position.
For the past 4 years, I have worked as a Conservation Officer for the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.

It has also given me the opportunity to develop strong relationships with local law enforcement agencies.
As an avid outdoor enthusiast myself, I would be honored to represent the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources as a DNR Officer. It would be a true privilege to continue working in this field while focusing more specifically on public outreach and education.
Thank you for taking the time to review my application materials and considering me for this position. If you have any questions or would like to schedule an interview, please do not hesitate to contact me at your earliest convenience at [Phone Number].
