For the past 30 years Lieutenant Robert Rooks has been part of the state’s Fish and Wildlife law enforcement department. And over the years he’s attained the post of Chief Game Warden.
And today Rooks is marking his final day in the office, as he heads into retirement. Rooks says he’s always loved the outdoors, and working in fish and wildlife was a dream.
