I grew up in Roseau Minnesota on a farm. I have always been interested in everything outdoors since the beginning. As soon as I was old enough, I started to deer hunt with my dad. Goose hunting soon followed that. Usually, my dad and I could shoot our limit of geese in a few hours hunting over our fields. From there I started to archery hunt for deer. Archery is where I found my main passion. It takes a lot of practice for that one moment in the woods or that one round at a competition. I am involved with the Northern Lights Archery Club in Roseau as a board member. We will put on a few 3D shoots and have league in both the summer and winter that keeps me occupied. Recently I became a level 2 coach for the Junior Olympics Archery Development to help teach kids in our area. Outside of the hunting and fishing side, I love to hike, kayak/canoe, snowshoe, and bike. So far some of my favorite trips have been hiking in Switzerland, canoeing in the Boundary Waters, and a backpacking trip in the Wind River Range of Wyoming. Hopefully, soon I will have a hunting trip out west to list on here too.
