Since I was old enough keep up with my dad, grandpa, and uncles and learned to stay quiet, I have been involved in hunting, guns, and the outdoors. With my grandfather being an avid gun collector, you can pretty much guess what us grandkids got for christmas. No complaints from us boys, my sister on the other hand...well she turned out to be quite the tom boy. I carried this love of guns and the outdoors with me straight out of high school and right into the Marine Corps. The Corps made me into the man I am today. It gave me the drive and determination, knowing there is nothing that cannot be accomplished through improvision, adaptation, and a lot of hard work. Today, I continue to work for Uncle Sam but in a completely different venue. I still get to trek around in the great outdoors and WOW!! the adventures it has produced. My loving wife tolerates the long hours and days away from home, only to see me show up steal a quick kiss and be off again chasing whatever critter I have a tag for or whatever varmint/predator season is open at the time. My ultimate dream is to represent whatever outdoor company will have me and promote the great oudoors and the awesome experience it provides.
