Growing up my father had my little brother and I on the Tennessee Valley waterways in Northern Alabama every Saturday morning 30 minutes before sunrise.  If we weren’t wetting a line then we were working around our place in the country. My father instilled a tough work ethic in all of us because that is all he knew, which is why I am so appreciative of him taking the time to teach me how to fish.  Due to his work schedule we never got around to the hunting part. I was always interested in hunting; researched it, watched the shows, read about it and even watched wildlife I just never went throughout my time living at home. 

When I was 17 years old I convinced my parents that they needed to sign a waiver for me to enter the Army Reserves Delayed Entry Program (DEP). I became a 54 Bravo (Chemical Operations Specialist) and had the privilege of serving my country while attending college. At college I finally got introduced to hunting by a friend of mine. On my first hunt my buddy harvested a doe and allowed me to assist with the field dressing, skinning and processing. It was at that moment that I was absolutely overcome with the passion that is hunting. I served my time with the Army and was honorably discharged but will carry those lessons learned as well as the love of hunting with me for the rest of my life. 

The empowerment that comes with hunting is so rewarding. Now I am 32 years old, married with a son and work for a government contractor on a military installation in North Alabama. To know that on any given day I can utilize my knowledge of the outdoors to harvest a meal for my family and not just any meal but something nutritious and delicious welcomes a sense of freedom I hope everyone gets to experience.  Hopefully throughout the information I disseminate you will find bits and pieces that you will carry to the field and find your freedom and expound on it as well. 

All glory to God and please remember to pray for our men and women downrange.
