False arrest

During the September moose hunt, my son was falsely arrested for being a felon with a firearm which would have also resulted in my arrest since the gun was mine.

I’m a 75-year-old with heart and other related problems. This false arrest bothered me so much I had to give up two days of moose hunting, which was embarrassing and very costly to me, a person on a fixed income.

The profile of a person by name only is wrong and should be corrected and that is the main reason for this letter.

Someone in Augusta should come up with a better system and a much quicker way of identification; it just took too long.

It would be nice and appreciated if IF&W would give me two days of moose hunting in 2009 and apologize for this blunder.
