As most kids in Iowa I was introduced to hunting when I was a young boy. We spent the weekends chasing pheasants and quail. I was introduced to turkey hunting at the age of 14. It was a successful trip and I was hooked. The dark cool damp mornings waiting for that first bird to gobble is a difficult feeling to describe. To this day, I still cant sleep the night before opening day.
While pheasant hunting in December we came across a large duck feed. We obtained permission, scrounged up some decoys and didn’t kill a thing. It started a passion that will never go away. During high school and college I hunted as often as I could. As with most people working and life takes up a lot of time but i managed to hunt every spare minute I could.
