My favorite spot growing up was fishing for brook trout in the Snow Range Mountains of Wyoming with my parents and sister. My passion for the hunt actually came later in life than most, oddly enough it really stated with my career in advertising. I was fortunate to meet some really good folks who shared my passion for animals and seeing what is over the next ridge. These friends led and fueled my ultimate hunting passion, I am forever in their debt. Now I involve both passions and spend many hours sculpting, painting and drawing wildlife and hunting dogs. From my first hunts for Wyoming pronghorn my vision for the next adventure exploded and over the next 20 years, I spend countless sleepless nights in economy class just to get to my next hunt.
Now with 6 continents under my belt and adventures in Argentina, Australia, Austria, Botswana, Canada, China, England, Italy, Mauritius, Mongolia, Namibia, New Caledonia, New Zealand, Scotland, Spain, South Africa, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe, I have taken over 80 big-game species. North America was never off my radar and thanks to some sage advice, I started collecting points in the Western states and now consistently draw some of the best tags available. I hold a Super 10 of North American species with a species count at 15 and have hunted or fished 23 states from Alaska to Texas and Florida to Hawaii.
After leaping at a chance to make hunting my new career I enjoy visiting with hunters from all walks of life and sharing my knowledge with WTA customers, it is from my personal experiences that I can relate to our customers hopes, dreams and fears. I completely understand the complex draw systems and my favorite day at work is telling clients, “You drew and unbelievable tag”. During my travels I met my wife in South Africa and when not at work we can be found relaxing with our 3 dogs, fishing or planning our next adventure.
