Outdoor Passion: My outdoor passion is bowhunting. I literally think about it non-stop (you can ask my wife and kids). I loved target archery before diving headfirst into bowhunting. I completely geek out on sights, releases, technique, arrow and broadhead configurations...you name it and I've probably done it. The total concentration involved in the perfect release of an arrow is something I look forward to when I practice. Just when you feel like you have a grasp on archery, it punches you right in the face (sometimes literally with a back tension release).
Favorite TV Show: "The Walking Dead" and "Stranger Things"...thank you Netflix, but I spend more time listening to podcasts and audio books than watching TV shows.
Go-to outdoor snack: jerky and almonds, specifically Wasabi and Soy, Sriracha and Sweet Thai Chili flavors
Claim to Fame: My ridiculous Instagram posts. I try to keep it serious on social media, but I am too much of a clown to pull that off. I have a deep appreciation for people who don't take themselves too seriously.
What Fuels Your Passion for the Outdoors?
My passion for the outdoors is fueled by the time and effort put into bowhunting. I love the challenge and the thrill of having to be close to the animal you are trying to harvest. The primitive nature of having to outsmart your prey stirs something primal up inside of me and keeps me learning and loving the hunt.
