Being from the sticks of Central Kansas I grew up hunting and fishing. I missed my first day of kindergarten because the white bass were running and my Dad decided that was more important. (Mom was real pleased) It would seem from then on the outdoors took a firm grasp on my life. I got my first compound bow at age 9 and never looked back. Hunting and especially bow hunting now consume my life. My season never ends, scouting, shed hunting, food plots, mineral sites, and trail cameras keep me busy when not in a stand. Few things fascinate me more than monitoring big bucks from year to year, watching them grow until the time is right.
