Belding inventor assists disabled hunters

BELDING -- Pete Odland has an affinity for helping others with physical limitations. The 50-year-old Belding man and owner of White's Bridge Tooling in Lowell also enjoys designing one-of-a-kind robotics machines.

So when Odland got a call in May from rocker and hunting activist Ted Nugent asking if he could build a device to help four wheelchair-bound brothers hunt again, Odland, a deeply spiritual man, said yes. His new device is called the Liberator.

"I've done a lot of handicap hunts out here, and it's really gratifying," said Odland, who brings disabled hunters out to his 337-acre Belding property to hunt, giving them a sense of hope and purpose. "You get positive feedback from these people saying you are literally saving their lives."
