A 92-year-old man told the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources how much he loved to hunt ducks at Farmington Bay but was unable to continue his passion.

He explained to them that, if he ever wanted to go pheasant hunting again, he'd require a little assistance.

The DWR stepped in to give Gerald Newbold exactly what he wished for.

With the help of a couple DWR conservative officers, Gerald was able to go pheasant hunting.

In a social media post, the DWR noted that Gerald was able to shoot his limit of pheasants during the hunt.

"Gerald is a great example of how hunting can be a lifelong passion. We hope we can be as adventurous at 92!" The post read.

The officers that helped Gerald enjoy a day out said that it was "one of their most rewarding days on the job."
