Chapmanville, West Virginia
I was raised to respect the outdoors and to cherish what God created for us. My father and both Grandfathers made the family tradition of hunting and fishing together a pillar in my life. Family and friends help bolster my enjoyment of the outdoor lifestyle and make the numerous challenges of harvesting a trophy whitetail in the Appalachian Mountain Range seem less daunting. The lack of
substantial agriculture, the abundance of harsh terrain, and the seemingly endless list of difficulties make tagging a true mountain trophy all the more rewarding. Making the habitat I hunt better with each passing year makes me very proud, and ensures not only my future success, but the future success of all
Appalachian Range Hunters.
