At a very young age I was raised to appreciate the outdoors and everything that Mother Nature has to offer. When still in diapers I acquired an interest in archery and toted around my stick and string everywhere I went and to this day that hasn't changed one bit! I strive to better myself in the hunting community and to also help those that are looking for the insight that they wish to acquire when it comes to hunting.
I plan all my own hunts and I am very proud of being a "Do It Yourself" hunter. Spending weeks on end in the middle of the backcountry makes me feel right at home. I look forward to my treks into the wilderness to see what new things I can learn about Mother Nature, myself and my wild game that I pursue.
I have been hunting for over 30 years and to this day I continue to learn new ways in which to do things that I love to do! These game bags made my harvesting of animals easier in the fact that I have a much better way to take care of the meat properly after the kill.
It is hard to pick a favorite animal to hunt but hunting animals that are very vocal and interact with your techniques are a lot of fun. That makes elk and turkey very fun for me but mule deer, whitetail, and antelope hunting are right there holding the “fun factor” as well. 90% of my hunting is done by spot and stalk and on public land. That type of hunting really pits your knowledge and experience against that of your prey on their terms. It levels the playing field more than any other type of hunting in my opinion. My hunts are demanding and I demand a lot from the gear that I use. Having strong, well built, gear and products is a must. Products that give you confidence is the field is needed ten-fold!
I am a father of two and I will teach them many of the same things that I was lucky enough to learn from my late father. Being a father is indescribable; I now know what my father meant when he said the things he said many years ago! I am an Officer in the SD National Guard and will always do my part to keep each and every one of us free and able to do what we want, when we want. Freedom isn't free but I will do my best to uphold the code of the military and our allies in force. As a Free-Lance writer I enjoy sharing my knowledge and experience with others who seek the same interests! If you have any questions don’t hesitate to reach out to me!
