As a game warden I receive countless calls from the public ranging from questions about hunting regulations to Sasquatch sightings.
So, when my phone rang one day in September of 2009 I had no idea that the conversation that I was about to have would change my life, but I’ll talk more about that later.
The man on the other end of the phone was Tron Peterson. I met Tron earlier in the year during spring turkey season, which is a whole other story, but the short version is that all I knew about him was that he was a man of integrity and someone who was interested in taking people with disabilities hunting.
So, when he started asking me questions about licensing exemptions for disabled veterans, he had my attention. I never served in the military but, with family members that had, I considered myself to be someone who thought we should support our troops even though I had never actually done anything to support them.
