I found out this past week that a good friend died of cancer. He was a wildlife law enforcement officer who worked on Fort Chaffee and around W. Central Arkansas for several years. Mike Thomas was a really fine man. He loved his job and was a real asset for the AGFC. Mike was always willing to help everyone. He often put me on to some really good hunting spots on public land, and paid his due diligence in protecting wildlife by fighting poaching and other illegal activities on our public hunting grounds. I guess Mike would best be remembered as a Christian man who always tried to do the right thing. He was fair to all and as honest as the day is long. Arkansas has lost a fine man. I will miss you Mike.
