“The 4th Annual Andrew O. Peterson Pheasant Hunt was held March 8th, 2013 at Mecan River Outfitters in Princeton, Wisconsin.  This event is held annually as a chance for those who knew Andrew to get together and do what Andew loved to do, and that is pheasant hunt and work hunting dogs.  Andrew passed away unexpectedly in January 2010 while employed as a Mauston Police Officer.  Each year, the owners of Mecan River Outfitters, the Harvey family, donate a portion of the proceeds back to Andrew’s children.  This year the children, along with their mother, Myriah Peterson-Coughlin and her husband, Mike Coughlin, chose to donate that money to the Mauston Police Department K-9 Unit.  As Andew had a strong love for dogs, the Peterson-Coughlin family wanted to give to a cause they knew Andrew cared for.  K-9 Officer Eric Sanner accepted a check for $300 on behalf of the K-9 Unit from the Peterson-Coughlin family.  The Mauston Police Department wishes to thank the Peterson-Coughlin family for their generous donation in remembrance of Andrew Peterson, “  said Mauston Police Chief Mark Messer.
