Tysen Travis

Tysen Travis awarded "Hunt of a Lifetime".

POLLOCK — Nothing’s holding Tysen Travis back.

He’s living life no differently than any other teenager in Idaho County, despite a Type 1 diabetes diagnosis.

Ask him what he does for fun, and he might tell you about riding — and crashing — his dirt bike. Ask him again this fall, and he might tell you about a “Hunt of a Lifetime” — an elk hunt put on by a charitable group dedicated to helping kids who face medical troubles with a chance to enjoy the great outdoors.

Volunteers Blaine Bergin and Jeff Morris presented Tysen a Unit 40 elk tag, a new rifle, and an opportunity last Saturday, May 4.
