I lived most of my life in a little town called Higginsville in central Mo. I was always that kid that was not happy unless I was fishing , hunting , or simply getting dirty in the outdoors in some way . I still to this day remember sitting on grandpa’s lap fishing till the wee hours of the morning at our municipal city lake . Never caught much but made great memories that I will carry throughout my life . My teen years brought on a new and very powerful passion that still today controls my every thought 24/7-365... “ Bowhunting Big Whitetails “… Last year i became a Kansas resident living in Ottawa with my best friend and love Cassie who has the passion for the outdoors as much as myself . Its one thing to have love for a sport , but to have someone to share those interest is a true gift .We have three wonderful children, Douglas , Emily , and a new addition named Rhiannon Quinn . Being part of THE WILD OUTDOORS team is such an honor and privilege , absolutely a great hunting family to be part of .
