  1. I don’t know Mr. Theel personally but have interacted with him many times on various social media pages and follow his online presence. While we might not agree on absolutely everything, he will make a great addition to the GF&P commission. It is also very nice to see the younger generation of hunters have some representation on the commission. Congratulations to Mr. Theel and a solid appointment from Gov. Noem.
