First time out on the water in 2019 resulted in a couple nice walleye.

Back in 2011, I packed up my life and moved three-quarters of the way across the country to chase down my dream career in outdoor media. I had taken a full-time position as a television producer with the Eastmans', a small family-owned publishing company that churns out magazines, a television show, books, and all forms of digital media related to western big game hunting. I knew no one when I arrived in Powell, WY that summer, but the people that I worked alongside, including Adam Bender, who occupied the office next door to mine, quickly became my new circle of friends. Throughout the course of the next two years, Adam and I had each other's backs as we chased elk, bears, mule deer bucks, trout, and magazine/tv show deadlines for work...all while communicating largely in movie quotes. Needless to say, my heart sank when I learned that Adam would be leaving to take a job with Cabela's in his home state of Nebraska during the summer of 2013. Although we stayed in touch, we never had an opportunity to get together in person since he left WY back in 2013. That is, of course, until I found out we would both be in Louisville, KY for the ATA show this year. Adam took some time out his hectic schedule to sit down for lunch with me last Friday at the convention center, and when we stood up to part ways he extended his hand to drop a small object into mine. I immediately knew what was up, and all I could say was "you son of a bitch..." After all these years, I’m proud to say that I’m now officially part of the tribe...

that feeling when you finally lay hands on something that’s been eluding you for years...after a season filled with ups and downs, close calls, and a few encounters with some mega PA bucks, I killed my first archery deer yesterday morning.

I spotted this micro snapping turtle making his way across the road towards the wetlands on the other side as I cruised past on my bike. Luckily, I had my camera and was able to snap a few pictures before helping him safely to the other side. #iliketurtles

see if you can spot Steve & I in this @mattziniel shot from a backpacking/fishing/camping trip in the high country of CO a few years back. Can’t wait to get back on a mountain out west.

i’m about that salty air & cast nets kind of life. have yet to spend much time in the saltwater fishing scene but you best believe it’s high up there on the to-do list.

wild stormy skies in western wisconsin this evening. #lookingup #cloudporn

summertime in Penn’s Woods. not too shabby for a vintage lens i bought for $5 out of a box labeled “recycle your old camera” at a local shop & an old canon t2i. one of the biggest red flags i’ve picked up on over the years working in photo/video is when people try to sell themselves on their fancy expensive gear. don’t buy into the hype...if the end result is pleasing to the eye, it makes zero difference whether it was shot on an iphone or a RED. #PA #pennswoods #nature

#tbt a quick photo op w/ some Maasai women while @mattziniel & I were filming a celebration at a village in Maasiland, Tanzania for Jim Shockey’s Uncharted back in the fall of 2014. I’ll always remember sitting around a campfire one night & listening to Jim tell us that, wether we realized it or not, we were potentially producing the best series of television shows ever made on hunting & conservation in Africa during that 7 week trip...and after seeing the finished episodes I believe he was right, still to this day they’re as good or better than anything I’ve ever seen. Although some of the things I’ve seen during my time in the hunting industry have left a bad taste in my mouth & made me question what the hell I’m doing with my life, there’s no doubt that getting into this line of work has taken me on a wild & crazy ride to places I never imagined I’d make it to...we’ll just have to wait & see where I end up next.

i’ve always thought it would be cool to photograph some tactical/shooting stuff & it just so happens i know some of the best guys in the business. recently had the opportunity to spend some time taking photos of the badass weaponry that the guys at @hartcustomrifles produce in their shop. if you’re in the market for a new boomstick that’s built to take out targets at long range i would highly recommend that you go check them out, they’re just getting things up & running here on IG.
