I have been an outdoor enthusiast since I was a child fishing and hunting the back country of Western Washington. Upon retirement from the U.S. Army I moved back to the only place that I felt challenged me as a hunter, Alaska. I now focus my efforts on proper game management, ethical hunting and fishing and dedicating my spare time taking Veterans hunting to encourage therapy through outdoor adventures. As a combat veteran, I have experienced first hand the many problems Veterans face resulting from combat exposure and military service. I firmly believe that many life challenges can be overcome by pursuing a life passion and pushing through the difficult times. By allowing these Veterans an opportunity to experience the outdoors through hunting and fishing, I feel it opens a new therapeutic avenue to combat many of the illnesses and injuries these heroes face.
“I do not hunt for the joy of killing but for the joy of living, and the inexpressible pleasure of mingling my life however briefly, with that of a wild creature that I respect, admire and value.”
