Wired Outdoors, a series airing on Sportsman Channel, gave a teenager stricken with leukemia, a chance to make his dream come turn.
On the special episode of Wired Outdoors, premiering Nov. 12 at 6:30 p.m. on Sportsman, Pennsylvania native Douglas Fickel, who is also one of 500 people in the world with Ataxia-Teleangiectasia, was able to realize his dream of hunting a bull moose in Maine.
