Born and raised in Oil City, PA, I grew up in hunting family. My father, uncles, and most of our family and friends hunted. I grew up in the deer woods and then eventually ventured into small game and turkey hunting. Turkey and deer quickly became my favorite game to pursueÉuntil I hunted waterfowl. My first waterfowl hunt was an experience I will never forget and to this day is the reason I am the waterfowler I am. Mallards in backwater, beaver ponds, and cornfields along with honkers - have taken over my hunting. IÕve been hunting hard since 1988Éand have no intention of quitting anytime soon!!!
I do want to say thanks to my wonderful wife, Kim, for putting up with me and the long seasons as I am given the opportunity to hunt hard, often, and long. I am also lucky enough to have the opportunity to represent three companies I truly believe in: Foiles Migrators, Final Approach, and HEVI-Shot. PutÕem in the decoys boyz!!!!
