I love everything about the outdoors and chasing big bucks. As a troubled teen growing up and constantly getting into trouble, I met my wife and I finally grew up, stopped doing the things that i was doing in the past and got myself on the right path. My father-in-law, Leon Kiser, took me hunting for the first time and thats when I harvested my first spike with the rifle, and from there on. I had a genuine passion for hunting. So I started getting into squirrel, turkey, and deer hunting as well. Ever since that first deer, i'm constantly in the woods hanging stands, scouting, putting in food plots, or just hanging out and watching wildlife. I like to fish for Smallmouth and hit holes of Bluegill as much as possible during the summer, but the deer season comes fast duing the summer and doesn't leave enough time for fishing. Managing my Deer Herd takes up most of the Spring and Summer time. My wife puts up with all the commotion and headache during the hunting seasons, while I continue to pursue my dream of knocking down that one buck I watch every year growing into the monster I want him to. Constantly traveling state-to-state chasing Whitetails and other animals. As my passion for hunting grows, the need for me to share my journeys and experiences with everyone possible grows as well.One of the most common misconceptions in the beginning is that everything is handed down by sponsors, yet this is not true. I still have to work a fifty-five to sixty-five hour week at my job to provide for my family, but i still find the time for my wife and kids. Although my family puts up with me constantly traveling during the seasons and only being home for short periods of time, they still support my passion. Luke Bryan said it best, " Huntin', Fishin', and Lovin' everyday. That's the prayer that a country boy prays,". Although my first kill was with a rifle my absolute go to is my bow. In the first few years of hunting, I was taking every mature doe that walked by, and weren't seeing any nice bucks. My father-in-law would always get onto me and explained to me that I was never going to see a nice, mature buck if I didn't let the does pass. Once I started letting does pass, I started to see more and more deer, which pushed that rush even farther. I've always felt that harvesting a nice doe is just as thrilling as harvesting a monster buck. So if you lose that feeling then you need to pursue another passion, like arts and crafts.
