My hunting lifestyle began at a very young age with my father some 30 years ago. I was brought up in the outdoors and have been diseased with it ever since. After growing up on the East coast the move was made to the great wide open of the West. I enjoyed a 12 year career in law enforcement and traveled throughout 3-5 states a year chasing all types of species with the bow and firearm. My passion remained for the outdoors and I made a life altering decision to pursue the outdoors full time.
I have now guided for the last 5 years in Montana. I am licensed to Guide in Montana and as a Assistant Guide in Alaska. On average I am in the field 200 days either guiding or hunting as well as filming. Although bowhunting remains my favorite, I do enjoy hunting with a rifle or handgun.
I have attended a camera school put on by Realtree in Atlanta and have almost as much fun behind the camera as I do being in front of it. It adds a difficulty level to your hunt that is hard to master.
I have been fortunate enough to harvest nearly 100 animals with archery equipment and numerous ones have qualified for the Pope and Young record book as well as Boone and Crockett. Size does not matter to me as much as the experience of the hunt with new friends or strangers. Showing our younger generation to the great outdoors is going to be my new focus for the years to come.
I am currently the regional pro staff manager for Mossy Oak and help coordinate seminars and events for the great company. I will not use products that I feel are inferior in my hunting endeavors.
He is also on the Pro Staff for the following: Bugling Bull Game Calls, Muzzy Broadheads, Kenetrek Boots, Hoyt Bows, Bohning Archery, Carter Releases, HECS – Human Energy Concealment Systems and Badlands packs.
