New York, NY –-(Ammoland.com)- Q: Who was your hunting/fishing mentor?
A: “My dad was my first true hunting and fishing mentor. I grew up in a family where hunting was a lifestyle, not a hobby. Almost all of my childhood memories of time spent with Dad involve hunting or fishing, and I am very thankful to him for introducing me to the outdoor arts.”

Q: How did you get started in the hunting /fishing industry?
A: “In 1997 I decided to change careers, so I went back to school. While I was in college my wife told me that I had to do something to support my “duck hunting habit,” so I started training retrievers and guiding duck hunters as a side job.”

Q: Tell us your favorite hunting/fishing joke.
A: “When the geese are flying in a V formation, do you know why one side is longer than the other??? Because it has more geese in it!”

Q: How do you like to spend your time when you are not hunting/fishing?
A: “Cooking has become a huge hobby, and I also spend as much time playing with my three daughters as possible.”

Q: What are people always surprised to find out about you?
A: “That I used to be a registered nurse.”

Q: What’s your biggest accomplishment/ what are you most proud of?
A: “In 2004 I won the gold medal in the ESPN Great Outdoor Games retriever trial.”

This could be a good show if you showed some conservation ethics!

Shoot greenheads-half the ducks you kill are hens!! This is by no means the way to keep duck numbers from dwindling. Sacrifice kill numbers for the show and shoot "green"–duck numbers have a difficult enough time trying to keep stable with all the wet land loss we see today!
