April 2018 entailed a two week visit to Western Russia with my friend Denis Cherentaev hunting for Capercaille and brown bear south of St. Petersburg. While unsuccessful on the bear, I did bag a beautiful bird on a very unique hunt and enjoyed the countryside very much.

Fall 2017 was very busy with many pheasant hunts, a successful blacktail hunt in Oregon with Lydia, her account of the hunt can be read about in the blog section, and a couple weeks in the Russian Caucasus where I took a couple Kuban Turs.

My hunting career started with whitetail deer and pheasants nearly 30 years ago in Minnesota and South Dakota.  At six years old, a trap line started to provide me with spending cash from the pelts of muskrat, racoon, mink and the occasional fox.  In second grade I was given a copy of  Safari Club International magazine and was enthralled.  I read about the exploits of Prince Abdorreezza of Iran, Theodore Roosevelt in Africa, South America and western North America, Jim Corbett in India, Ivory hunters and other globe-trotting big game hunters, which further charged my dreams to explore the world and pursue big game in the far reaches of exotic jungles, deserts and mountains.  

 I was extremely fortunate to experience my first African Safari to Zimbabwe for three weeks with Dad at a young age and have returned to Africa many times.   In 2000 I began bowhunting and fell in love with it.  The thrill of getting up close and personal is indescribable.  A few years later after a great hunt with Brian Martin in BC, I discovered that my real passion has become mountain hunting because of the extreme physical and mental challenge.  Now with over 150 big game animals taken on six continents and 65 by archery, I am well on my way to my dreams.
