FARMINGTON BAY, Utah — When a 92-year-old Utah man was unable to go hunting without assistance, wildlife officials jumped into action.
Gerald Newbold called the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources earlier this month to talk about how much he enjoyed pheasant hunting at Farmington Bay, but was unable to go alone due to his age.
Hearing Newbold's story, conversation officers with the DWR took him out and allowed him to shoot his limit of pheasants.
"Gerald is a great example of how hunting can be a lifelong passion. We hope we can be as adventurous at 92!," the department wrote on social media.
According to the department, the officers who assisted Newbold called it one of their most rewarding days on the job.
