  If you work for the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, a typical day does not exist.  The day could bring a drug bust, seizure of gill nets, or rescuing a youngster drifting from shore in the family's boat.  State Impact Texas recently featured a few of the more unexpected situations game wardens face on a "typical" day.  One tense incident occurred at Palo Duro Lake in the Texas Panhandle.
