A neighbor took me on my first duck hunt, and it changed who I was. Sure, I was pretty good at all the other stuff, but it came to me as naturally as sniffing a spent shell or spitting onto an ant pile. It just felt right being in the muck, water up to my belly, sipping coffee and watching the clock and the black fighter jet silhouettes that shot past me in the wee hours, their wings whistling. My favorite moments in this life have been sharing this with my daughter Cassie and son Hunter, both of whom I am very proud of, not just for the hunters they are but for the people they have become. Our little group, the Recoil Junkies, is a small band of brothers (and sisters) who are my South Dakota family. I am also looking forward to reliving some of the early years with my girlfriend Lisa, and her 2 kids Carter and Ella. Being asked to be on Team Wild Dakota as a pro staff member has long been a dream of mine, and now I get to live it with some great guys who all have a love for the outdoors, respect for game, and are willing to give back what we have been blessed with through our KKIDS and OAF programs. I am one of the lucky few to get to live a dream, I thank everyone who sponsors and enjoys our show. Without you, none of this would be possible.
