About Me

Born and raised in Geneva, NY. I moved to southern California in 2006. I hunt hard out here and still head back to NY for whitetail season. I've been an archer for 28 years and a bowhunter for 23+ years. I love every second of it. I want to soak up as much of life that is has to offer in the shortest time possible. I have an amazing wife and daughter. My family & friends are very important to me. I can be serious when I need to be... ok, I try to be serious, but I am a wise-ass and I love to make people laugh, so that usually gets the best of me.

Always looking to meet new hunting buddies and share stories. I would love to build a strong group of hunting friends who can hunt together and share ideas.
