All of my life I have been spending as much time as possible
in the outdoors. As a young man my Dad always said “You
are never going to amount to anything if all you ever
want to do is Hunt and Fish!” He was probably right
in a sense but I wouldn't change a thing if I could. As
a child, I spent endless hours running through the hills
and up and down creek banks chasing everything from tadpoles
to the biggest bucks I could find. I hunted and trapped
my way through college only going to school from January
to August just so I could spend all fall hunting and trapping.
Although it took me a tad longer to graduate from college,
I was rewarded with experiences that no school could ever
provide me. My outfitting business provides me the opportunity
to share the abundance of knowledge that I have learned
in the outdoors with my clients today.
In 1998 I decided to start a small outfitting business
hoping to take as few huntersas
possible just to help pay for the small properties I had
leased at the time. Since that time this practice has
not changed. I currently manage over 40,000 acres of prime
elk, deer and turkey property all the while taking as
few hunters as I possibly can to cover the cost of the
properties, food plots, quality tree stands, hunting equipment,
lodging, and my supplemental feeding program. My philosophy
has always been to never put a hunter into a stand that
I would not want to hunt myself. In most cases I only
take one group of hunters on each property each year.
This allows the hunter to hunt fresh stands that have
not been hunted since they were there the previous year.
If a hunter chooses to pass an animal he knows that there
is a very good chance that the same animal will be there
the following year and hopefully even be bigger. On some
of the properties I will have no more than one hunter
per 1000 acres. This allows the hunters to experience
animals acting the way they do naturally!
With Biologic as a sponsor I work very hard to provide
as many quality food plots as time will allow. This helps
to give the animals the nutrition they need to grow to
their full potential. In addition to quality food plots,
I support a very intense supplemental feeding program
with feeders running year round on every property. I also
maintain mineral licks that provide the minerals the bucks
and does need to make it through the summer months. I
also manage an extensive trail camera network providing
an accurate inventory of what I have to offer my clients
each year. Typically I will have a picture of every animal
harvested. I have a photo history dating back as far as
1998 when the first cameras hit the market.
I thank you for visiting my web site and look forward
to visiting with you about how I can help to provide you
the best hunting experience of your life. If you would
like to book a hunt please shoot me an email, check out
the references, or give me a call at any time. I am always
anxious to visit about a hunt!
