Hunting is our hobby. Time with family and friends is our passion.
I've had the pleasure of being able to enjoy the outdoors at a young age; my father being an avid outdoors-man we tagged along regularly. Luckily, I married someone who also shared our passion growing up. And now we are carrying the tradition down to our five children.
I enjoy the outdoors, especially time with my family. I grew up in Wyoming, that is where my love for the outdoors and hunting began. If I wasn't in school or football practice I was on the mountain hunting or fishing any chance I could. My passion lies in high country mulies, and big predators; mountain lions and bears.
Teaching my children how to hunt has been fun and rewarding; I look forward to time hunting with my kids more than I do hunting for myself. Mixing old traditions with new ones has been very fulfilling.
Born and raised in Mapleton Utah, I was able to hunt and fish right from home. If I wasn't on the baseball field I had a gun or fishing pole in my hand and was out till dark or until my mom would drive across town and pick me up from the foothills.
My Uncle had a subscription to every outdoor and hunting magazine there was, and when he was done reading them I would take them all home and read from cover to cover. The stories that drew me in most were bowhunting stories about Alaska and Canada, especially when the author hunted with a recurve or longbow. I grew up shooting an old recurve, but I think it was those old stories that endeared me to traditional archery, and the reason I still love it today. I still love to hunt with my muzzleloader and rifle, but given the choice I'll take my recurve every time.
If I'm not hunting or fishing you can usually find me at the archery range shooting leagues or tournaments.
I currently live in Springville, have 3 awesome kids and a brand new Grand Daughter. My kids share my love of the outdoors and archery.
