Eric Pickhartz is the Editor in Chief of Wide Open Spaces, bringing a strong love of the outdoors, a zest for storytelling, and a journalism background to the site's content on a daily basis. His fishing experience began at a young age on Minnesota lakes, both frozen and thawed, and has since used seasonal hunts and fishing trips as an excuse to become a better writer and editor. He lives outside Austin, Texas with his wife, two sons, and Chocolate Lab.
