The man of few words and lots of wisdom is a legend in his area.

Mark Little , a recreational safety warden with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, says Rudolph is humble and possesses an adherence to discipline. "I can't think of two more important character traits a man should have," Little said.

Rudolph was honored for an outstanding 50 years of volunteer service to the Wisconsin Hunter Education Program on July 31. The award was presented by Little in front of Rudolph's hunter education class at the Medford Town Hall Center.

Hunter Education Administrator Jon King said: "The program is successful because of volunteers like Dick Rudolph, and his family who have supported him to be able to share his expertise with so many."
