027 Glen Lucas – The Snowmobile Patrol – Part One

Around the time when deer season ends and the snow starts to stick, snowmobilers from all around start to flock to where the trails are deep and fast. And, because of the design of the Warden’s duties in New Hampshire, so begins a new season of law enforcement. Glen Lucas knows the snow machine season in NH very well.
