Growing up on an acerage in SE Nebraska, Ive always had a love for the outdoors!  I took on bowhunting at 12 years old after watching VHS tapes like monster bucks, and reading articles written by some of the legends of the outdoors. (Bill Jordan, David Blanton, Chuck Adams, Randy Ulmer etc.)  I grew up in a non-hunting Family, though they were VERY supportive of my growing interest in bowhunting.  Living in the country we were always catching a glimpse of a whitetail in the fall, and strutting Toms in the spring.  Making the decision to become a hunter was one of the most important and impactful decisions of my life.  Hunting kept me on the straight and narrow during high school.  While other kids were out partying and staying up through the night getting into trouble, I was focused on topo maps and where I was going to set up in the morning to hopefully catch a bruiser cruising the treelines.  My love for bowhunting and the outdoors has continued to shape my life and help me become the man I am today.  About 5 Years ago I grew a passion for "telling a story" and documenting my outdoor experiences.  I fell deep into the lifestyle of filming hunts, sharing content and exposing the pure Joys of bowhunting.  In the summer of 2016, I launched my lifestyle and media brand "Whitetail Fit".

This is a brand I have poured my heart and soul into.  Outside of hunting I have been a huge advocate of healthy lifting, and living a "fit" lifestyle.  I quickly realized the benefits that fitness exposed in my trips to the outdoors.  Hiking, hanging stands, waking up early, dragging deer, working the fields, motivation, carrying filming equipment along with my hang and hunt sets etc.  The fitness side of my life, went HAND IN HAND with my style of bowhunting.  Thus, Whitetail Fit was born.

Public Land Bowhunting is my GO-TO.  Something about hundreds, even thousands of acres at my disposal to explore, research and tackle head on is extremely rewarding to me.  With hunting large tracts of public land, comes with a certain level of physical demand.  most public parcels I hunt do not allow access by ATV or Vehicle.  Basically you've got to hoof it haha.  I love every aspect of that challenge,  it is a style of bowhunting that I have grown a huge passion for.

Ive been able to reach so many amazing people with the message of healthy living, and a lifestyle in the outdoors.  I couldn't feel more blessed, and I thank the Good Lord every day for giving me the opportunity to share what I love.

Since becoming a hunter 14 years ago, Most of my Family have adopted the lifestyle as well!  Wild game is a delicacy in our households and knowing where our meat comes from is so important to us!
