I wonder why the warden is wearing a vest?

 

If Patrolman Johnson, of the 12th precinct, gets shot in the big city, he most likely is getting shot with a pistol, and wearing a vest would be helpful.

 

But if Warden Barker there gets shot at in the deep woods, he's going to get shot with a high powered rifle, and that Kevlar ain't going to do nothing.

He's probably wearing a vest because; a) it's required by his agency, and; b) he considers it a possibility that he might be shot with a shotgun or with a handgun and believes it would be beneficial. Even after disarming a suspect in the field, they could have a second weapon concealed.

 

Also, wildlife agents aren't always working in the field. Some make entries into suspected poachers' and smugglers' properties to conduct searches. 

 

And even if it comes down to being shot with a high-powered rifle,  I'd guess some ballistic protection is better than none.

 

But that's just my thought -- YMMV.

Some years back I acquired an older, class 2 vest. We took it out to the range to try it out. It stopped pistol rounds just fine. It did NOTHING to slow down .308 rounds though.
