Name: Jacob Ford Home Town: Johnson city, TN
Born in 1989, I was introduced to the outdoors as soon as I could walk. My earliest and favorite childhood memories come from the middle of farm country in north central Wisconsin in small town called in Medford. I can remember riding down the dirt roads around our dairy farm with my dad looking for deer and fields would be littered with massive Wisconsin bucks.
One evening around sundown our family was driving around looking at deer when I was 4 years old and we drove right up next to what is still the biggest buck I have ever witnessed while he was standing in a ditch and I was hooked from then on to deer hunting.
Our family moved back to the Appalachian Mountains in Southwest Virginia when I was 5 and I spent the rest of my time growing up in Mendota on a 140 acre farm right on a river. My two brothers and I would spend hours almost daily during the summers and anytime we could during school to get out there and wear it out on that river. Much has changed, but my brothers are still my hunting buddies and we get to hunt together almost every week during deer season.
There are so many great outdoor activities here in the mountains that I am passionate about from great hunting and fishing, The Appalachian Trail, Creeper Trail, quality lakes, etc. When I’m not lucky enough to be enjoying one of those, I spend my time working with clients as a Financial Advisor.
