Caldwell graduated from Southeastern Oklahoma State University in 1989 with a bachelor’s degree in wildlife conservation. He served as a park ranger/natural resource specialist for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for 17 years in Oklahoma’s Keystone Lake and Hugo Lake offices. During that time, he also spent four months as a Corps of Engineers quality assurance representative in Basra, Iraq. Throughout most of his tenure with the Corps, he continued to ranch Caldwell Farms in Hugo, Okla.
Caldwell began his career with the BLM in 2006 as a natural resource specialist in BLM Wyoming’s Rock Springs Field Office and, since 2008, served as its supervisory wildlife biologist. In his new position as Kemmerer Field Manager, Caldwell remarks, “I look forward to continuing to explore the endless wonders of this state and working with its great people.”
A native of Hugo, Caldwell and his wife, Sandy, have two sons, Tyler, 18, and Clayton, 17. Caldwell enjoys hunting, fishing, camping and wilderness pack trips. Some of his favorite time spent in Wyoming so far has been on pack trips in the wilderness areas of the Wind River Mountains to fish and hunt elk with his family and friends.
