As a degreed biologist from the University of Texas at San Antonio, Lance has spent a lifetime studying and understanding the habits and movements of many game animals, both large and small. That knowledge has been brought to bear in his outdoor writing and reviews of many vertical bows, crossbows, and rifles. Lance also has a background in military contracting and even spent time conducting anti-piracy patrols in the Gulf of Aden and surrounding areas. He has a thorough understanding of multiple aspects of shooting and training and is even considered an expert in many circles. He has been shooting both archery and firearms since age 5 and has spent the last 40 years honing those skills.
