I personally don’t take or get many opportunities to hunt predators for myself. Typically, I hunt just one time a year and it’s during a predator hunting contest! This contest is the biggest contest in Arizona and generally has 100+ teams. My partner and I have never finished outside of the top 5 and that’s something we are both proud of, especially considering my youth coaching responsibilities cuts out about 3 hours of hunting and where we can hunt.

I get invites to hunt ranches and hunt with different personalities in the hunting industry all of the time, but the reality is I am generally super busy guiding, marketing and trying to stay involved with my family.  This year was an exception, and I actually took the time to hunt twice!!!

Looking forward to hunting and talking with many of  you this year.
