Born and raised in South Dakota, I grew up around hunting and fishing with my family and soon inherited the obsession for the outdoors. It all started at 10 years old when I went hunting with my father and grandfather carrying my Red Rider BB gun everywhere we went.
Most of my time during the fall is spent hunting with family & friends in South Dakota. What makes waterfowl hunting priceless is seeing the ducks & geese cupped and committed landing in your face!! The greatest part of all the years I’ve been hunting is not only the hunt itself but the camaraderie & wisecracks shared amongst the group while being in the great outdoors creating memories that last a lifetime. It is about the journey, not about the results.
Trigger, my black lab, became part of the family 10 years ago. I immediately joined the Dakota Hunting Retriever Club and have been training him since. In addition to the DHRC, I am also involved as a member of the South Dakota Waterfowl Association, South Dakota Wildlife Federation and Ducks Unlimited.
After the guns are all cleaned, I enjoy spending quality time with my wonderful wife Stacy, and my two beautiful daughters; Kylie & Brinley. My family enjoys spending time outdoors as well. I even proposed to my wife in a boat 11 years ago, since she just loves to fish! Most of our family time is spent outside swimming, boating, camping, hunting, fishing or just grilling & relaxing.
