I was first introduced to hunting by my dad when I was pretty young. He took me out for a youth rifle hunt in Wisconsin which yielded nothing but cold fingers and toes, and a love for the woods. While I was away at college in Marshall, my dad bought me my first bow. Having never bow hunted before I was excited to see what it was all about. I learned a few lessons the hard way and developed a passion for it. Around the same time, I had started pheasant hunting. I would say this was when I became hooked on hunting.
My favorite part about hunting is getting away from everything else and being able to focus on the nature that surrounds us. Each day you step out there’s no way to predict what will happen. We can do any number of things to improve our chances, but in the end we need a bit of luck to harvest an animal.
My top hunting highlights are my dad and I each shooting a deer within 5 minutes of each other on public land, taking both a coyote and a pheasant with my bow while deer hunting, and obviously shooting my first deer and my first buck.
Currently, I hunt whitetails in MN and WI, pheasants, turkeys, and coyotes.

I love this club it is full of very respectful hunters who understand that everyone has different opinions. I absolutely love animals and am a large advocate for protecting the wildlife. This group understand the importance of conservation for future generations, and the importance of hunting has in management of wildlife.
They call it the Minnesota Hunting Club, but don’t let the name fool you. This group is everything outdoors. Tons of knowledge on just about everything, outdoors and otherwise, and lots of great people who are here to answer questions, help each other out, and even get together occasionally to make some memories. Great club!
Great place for fellow hunters to come together, share stories, ask questions and improve the overall hunting numbers with ethical hunters.
