I was raised in a small town in the middle of the Appalachian Mountains called Big Ugly, West Virginia. The outdoors was all I knew. I was hunting and fishing with my father from the time I could walk. He taught me true outdoor values, to respect the wildlife, and to always give thanks for the blessings you receive. I have now been archery hunting whitetails for 30 years and my passion has only grown with age. I am Shannon Sizemore, hunting whitetails and sharing my outdoor adventures in Appalachia with friends and family is my life. There is nothing I love more than sitting in a stand and enjoying God’s creation, listening to the wind come up and over the ridge and the smell of fall leaves. The mountains are my way of life and I am thankful to share my experience with you.
