I started hunting after I got out of the Marine Corps in 2010. It was a way to clear my mind and center myself again. I absolutely fell in love with the culture and chasing the X. When I’m not forced to work, I spend most of my free time hunting anything that is in season or going to various sportsman shows or seminars. It has become a way of life for me and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I started out with a Beavertail 6.5hp long tail mud motor on my 12ft aluminum boat and eventually upgraded to a 1652 mod V with the Beavertail 1600 series blind on top. I had used other blinds in the past but as soon as the 1600 series went on I could tell the difference. Birds were actually decoying and landing 10-15 yards from the boat. Im not the easiest on my gear and my Beavertail has held up to every challenge I have thrown its way from the marshes, to hunting in the San Francisco Bay in saltwater. There is no better product on the market and I jumped on the opportunity to become apart of the Beavertail and DOA team!
