I grew up in and still live in northern Utah.  I love spending time outdoors with my family.  My wife often tells me I was born in the wrong era, and that I should have been born in the days of the mountain men.  From as early as I can remember I’ve been going fishing, camping, and on back country canoe trips.  I started out hunting upland game with my dad when I was younger, but it wasn’t until a little later on that I had the fire to hunt big game kindled within me.  My favorite place to scout and hunt is the high country, there’s just something special about it the air up there.
