There is more to hunting then just collecting trophies!! Let's face it, today's society hunting is a sport. It's been that way for a while now. You look on the magazine shelves, tune your tv to the outdoor channel, sportsman channel, pursuit, and gen7 outdoors. We're presented with hunters that have big time sponsors, slots on the programming all in pursuit of the biggest rack, longest beard, biggest fish, and the most amount of birds that will fly in front of them.
Predator vs predators, a game that's been played for thousands of years since the beginning of man. Although equipment and techniques have changed since we first used rocks as arrow and spear heads to hunt our quarry, the challenge is still there. Hunting predators can be one of the most exciting adrenaline rushes a person can get if you take the time to plan and setup perfectly.
Hey guys my name is Derek Klug. I live in Southwest VA. Im 25 years old and have 2 kids that mean the world to me. I got introduced to the outdoors at the young age of 10 by my dad. Although the only hunting my dad ever has done is rifle hunt a time or 2 every season I sat with him and watched him harvest a big 7 pointer one evening and that's all it took. I was hooked. 2 days later he took me back behind the house and sat me down with his 30-06 and I shot a spike and that was it, I was a hunter for life. 2 years later my uncle introduced me to archery and muzzleloader hunting. My uncle was also involved in competition archery and offered to teach me that also. Since I was 12 years old I've been shooting tournaments and recently in the past few years started traveling all over the country shooting tournaments. Archery and hunting are now a 365 day a year passion for me. If I'm not working or spending time with my family you'll find me deer hunting in the fall, turkey hunting in the spring, and shooting archery tournaments from January til October.
