From Wild Dakota Outdoor Television
"I was blessed with a son CJ"
Being outdoors has always had a big impact on my life. Whether it was hunting, fishing, camping or athletic activities, I was always involved. As a kid growing up on a farm in north central South Dakota, hunting quickly became one of my favorite hobbies. Starting with hunting pheasant and deer, my dad began taking me, and after time it turned into me taking my two younger brothers. Living just 25 miles from the Missouri River, we often made fishing trips on the weekends as well. Over the years I began to expand on my hunting experience with archery hunting, and also doing some turkey hunting.
I moved to Sioux Falls in 2004 to attend college, and became involved in many activities in the area. After a short time of not being involved in many outdoor sports, I have gotten back to my roots and am looking forward to getting back to the way of life I grew up with.
If you follow me on social media, it’s easy to see one of my favorite hobbies is BBQ! I pride myself to be a field to plate hunter, and enjoy making delicious meals for my family and friends. My passion for BBQ has led me to an opportunity with Green Mountain Grills, and will be doing numerous events for Wild Dakota TV, as well as events around the SE South Dakota region.
I was blessed with a son CJ, who has grown to have the same passion for the outdoors as myself. He often frequents with me on my hunting and fishing trips. Being able to teach him about conservation and the outdoors is one of my greatest accomplishments. He recently caught his first fish ice fishing, and will also be doing his first mentor hunt this fall!
I was recently engaged to my amazing fiancé who not only supports my way of life and habits, but also enjoys experiencing them as well. Having her along on trips make the experiences and memories much more enjoyable. We look forward to many fishing and hunting trips as a family in the future and cannot wait to share our experiences with you!
