About Me

Idaho Elk Hunt

I provide updates on conservation, environmental issues, hunting updates, gear reviews, family, other related outdoor information and stories of my own personal adventures.

The more information that you have, the more prepared you will be. This will assist you in having greater success in your adventures!

I have a love of wildlife, passion for hunting, the pure backcountry and bowhunting the remote wildernesses of this great planet. I have tried to base my life and career around the things I love most, my family, bowhunting the backcountry and traveling to Italy.

I grew up in Delaware and moved to Virginia when I was 14 and started bowhunting with a buddy from high school who introduced me to this new “hunting world.”

I killed my first deer with a PSE Polaris bow on opening day, the first time ever hunting. My buddy bailed on me, because it was raining. The whole story is better around a campfire!

Since that time, I have grown to hunt primarily with my bow. I hunt everything from small game, to predators, to big game in this great country of ours. I am a first-generation hunter and a self-taught outdoorsman. I love sharing my trials and successes of hunting, just as much as listening to other hunter’s stories.

I reside in Virginia with my beautiful wife, 1 son, 2 dogs at home and 3 other sons not at home exploring their own adventures.

I am a chairperson for the Bull Run Chapter of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation and a member of ECWSF, Wild Sheep Foundation, Whitetails Unlimited, Safari Club International, Izaak Walton League of America, and Team Hunting Life Pro Staff member and hold a PMP from the Project Management Institute. (For the geeks!)
