I have been an avid hunter and outdoorsman my entire life, but especially the last eleven years upon moving back to my home of Eastern Washington. I grew up in the wheat fields of Eastern Washington on a family farm. I have been an educator for sixteen years now and am happily married with two beautiful children who are actively involved with sports and recreation. We enjoy the outdoors here in our own backyard alongside attending sporting events and activities locally. I recently achieved one of my bucket list items by traveling to New Zealand for an opportunity to hunt tahr, chamois, and red stagg. I hope to scratch off another bucket list item in the very near future.
