I have a passion for the outdoors and spending time with the ones I love. I find that outdoor adventures have brought more opportunities to spend with important people in my life. For instance, a back country hiking/backpacking trip to Isle Royale was the perfect bonding trip between friends. Which is why years later, I planned a different route on Isle Royale to share with my younger brother. I also have fond memories of bonding with uncles, cousins, and siblings at the deer camp. I am sure many of you can relate. These positive memories propelled me into learning the ins and outs of archery. Currently, I shoot a longbow and follow many traditional archery traditions. This has developed into a winter hobby of creating custom cedar arrows for future small game and deer hunts. I am looking forward to sharing this tradition with my nephews this winter. My wife introduced me to one of her passions a few years ago – bird hunting. She has me hooked and you can’t get either of us out of the woods in fall. We are searching for grouse, pheasants, turkeys, or ducks on our property with our faithful dogs. In the spring and summer, I am addicted to rivers, lakes, and streams testing my recently tied flies and my latest fly fishing skills. In the winter, I enjoy getting outdoors to snowshoe or ski. I love surprising my guests with hot chocolate or a winter camp fire. As you can see, I love the outdoors. The outdoors bring me nature, peace, and love. This is why I am the luckiest guy in the world, my job enables me to manage and protect the outdoors for future generations.
