This Week on HSCF’s “Hunting Matters” Radio and Podcast: Danny Shaw, CEO, Operation Game Thief

Houston Safari Club Foundation (HSCF) and “Hunting Matters” welcome Danny Shaw, CEO of Operation Game Thief.

Having spent 33 years as a ranger for Texas Parks and Wildlife, Danny has had the opportunity to serve Texans. Conserving our natural resources has been his focus both professionally and personally. He and his wife Elaine have raised four daughters and one son.

Danny had the privilege throughout his career to hold many positions within the Law Enforcement division. He began his career in 1986 as a field ranger in Port Isabel and completed the final leg as a lieutenant colonel (director of field operations ). Along the way he held the positions of lieutenant, captain, and major. Danny spent five years as the Director of Training at the Game Warden Training Center.

He has spent the last decade of his career involved in conservation issues at the state and national levels. He helped create a National Leadership Academy for conservation law enforcement professionals, held annually in Shepherdstown, West Virginia. The curriculum that was developed challenges students to face the realities of managing resources, exploiting our natural resources, and building impactful relationships with all of our stakeholders.

Danny wants to become a catalyst to get Texans involved in intentionally helping rangers stop the people and groups that are stealing our resources. He believes that each and every species is irreplaceable and exists for our spirit and the harmony of our world.
