015 Nick Brunson – Nevada Fish and Game Warden

Nick Brunson is a Nevada Fish and Wildlife Warden. Nevada is some vast wild west territory and Nick has 9000 square miles to cover on his patrol. With only 31 Warden’s in the state, it can be overwhelming and Nick often times will camp out as he attempts to catch a poacher instead of returning home for the night. It’s just part of the job.

003 Kevin Jordan – The Colonel and I

Kevin Jordan is a colleague and a great friend and he’s the Colonel of the New Hampshire Fish and Game. I’ve worked side by side with the Colonel for many years and learned tons from him.  Colonel Jordan is a great investigator and prosecutor.  “I caught ’em, he cleaned ’em,” as we used to say.  I was a sponge when it came to working with Kevin and he took me under his wing and helped me get back into law enforcement after I was shot in the line of duty.
