Overview
When hunting wild game, you're often restricted to the number of animals you can "take". When a game warden is hunting "poachers", there's no limit to the number of them which one can catch! And so, the creation of the sub-title, "Huntin' Poachers - No Limits". In Sgt. Tony Petreikis' 26 years of being an Illinois Game Warden, he constantly challenged himself to find another "Bad Guy". Often times, it meant lying in the mud, walking miles through the timber or working in the most inclement weather that Illinois could muster. No matter how hard it got, Tony pushed himself to complete the next case. Please join Tony for a look into the unique trials and tribulations of an Illinois Game Warden's career. Hopefully you will laugh ...and maybe even cry as he takes you through a career worth of work!

And so, the creation of the sub-title, "Huntin' Poachers - No Limits". In Sgt. Tony Petreikis' 26 years of being an Illinois Game Warden, he constantly challenged himself to find another "Bad Guy". Often times, it meant lying in the mud, walking miles through the timber or working in the most inclement weather that Illinois could muster. No matter how hard it got, Tony pushed himself to complete the next case. Please join Tony for a look into the unique trials and tribulations of an Illinois Game Warden's career. Hopefully, you will laugh ...and possibly even cry as he takes you through his career of work! Having worked from the Chicago suburbs to the remote banks of the Mississippi River, Tony experienced much more than just conservation work. Not only will you get stories about hunting and fishing, but you will also see stories related to bombs, the use of a psychic, the mafia, drugs, commercial businesses and "The Blue Thing". You will also get a look into "A Warden's Reality". This chapter will enlighten you on some of the "horrible" parts of the job. If you complete the book, you will know Tony and what it took to do almost every aspect (good or bad) of being an Illinois Game Warden!
