I believe in God, family, country, and outdoor pursuits! I try to live my life in support of all of them. I’ve been married to my wonderful wife Tina for 29 years and we have 4 amazing kids. I have now been bowhunting for over 40 years.
I love the PBS for the opportunities it affords its members to interact with and learn from some of the best bowhunters in the world. Best is NOT defined by who has taken the most animals or by those who have their name in a book more than anyone else. Best are those who pursue game in an ethical and sportsmanlike manner. It's those who recognize the hunt is in the journey and not the destination. It's those who understand the complex relationships between man and nature. It's those who know there are no shortcuts to success. A faster bow, brighter sight, smoother release, or clearer trail camera do NOT guarantee success. In fact, in can detract from what truly defines success; the hunt! Best are those who go afield to enjoy nature, learn about and respect the game they pursue, meet the challenge of the environment, and are just happy to be there. Best are those who know that life isn't about stuff, it's about making memories (that's all we can take with us). Best are those who know the kill is simply icing. I have been extremely fortunate to hunt with some of PBS's BEST and look forward to many more hunts.
Please don't forget the most important things in your life and represent all bowhunters in a way to preserve the sport for future generations.
