I went on my first duck hunt nearly 30 years ago in Southern Oregon and instantly it became a passion of mine. I shot 2 birds all season…a Greenwing Teal and a Canada Goose. That didn’t matter as much as spending time outdoors with my dad, training our first Lab together, navigating public waters in our tiny jon boat, and constantly learning the skills needed to be a successful waterfowl hunter. Since those early years, I have put in thousands of hours hunting, mainly public land, all over the Pacific Northwest. For a majority of those years I mainly targeted puddle ducks over open water. The last 10 years I have lived along the Columbia River in southwest Washington. This has allowed me to branch out and target divers on the river and field hunt out of layout blinds for geese. The goose hunting is what got me looking for full body decoys. That is when I discovered DOA. I have never been the best caller for geese or ducks, but since I have had my DOA Rogue full bodies in the fields I have radically improved my success and harvest. I jumped at the opportunity to join the DOA staff after experiencing the quality of DOA brand.
