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.
