Jim ‘Ike’ Eichinger


Started hunting later in life in 1981 at the age of 23, Began hunting gun seasons in Upstate New York, after several years as the passion grew, I began to bowhunt in 1997. The rest is fueled by passion for the outdoors. From award winning photographs to traveling to Colorado and harvesting Pope and Young antelopes. It has now grown to learning the art of trapping and fishing in the spring through the fall.  Hunting teaches you to be one with the forest and the animals you pursue, to absorb your surroundings and even though on a hunt, it’s about the experience and respect for whatever game you are hunting. Constantly learning, because when learning stops then you have lost the passion for the outdoors.
