1) Where’s the place you feel the most grounded or at home?
It seems weird but my home spot could be a place where I’ve never been before. Anytime I’ve got a backpack, tent, and all my stuff and I just head out, especially when I’m by myself, it just feels like I’m at home.
2) Is there something you consider unique about your approach to hunting?
I don’t know if it’s unique but it’s a shared experience that maybe some people talk about - I think for me if someone says “why do you hunt?” it’s so many things. For me it’s the food, but there’s also this aspect of adventure and I want it to be a challenge. I don’t like the easy way.
3) When were you introduced to hunting?
I don’t even know the first time I went out hunting with my dad, it was probably before memory. I saw a picture, it was a picture of my dad and my mom, they were in a backcountry camp and I’m in a backpack probably a year old and they were sleeping in a wall tent, hunting elk in Montana. I just grew up around it so my first experiences are those memories of it.
4) How do you continue to challenge yourself and level up your hunting game?
When I first started self filming, people were like, “You can’t take a mule deer with a bow and self film it” and I was like, “Ok, I’ll prove you wrong on that.” That became the thing that I would do. Constantly challenging myself has made me so much better of a hunter.
5) What has been your favorite hunting experience?
Last year my wife went on her first bow hunt and it was a really cool experience because she was actually pregnant with our daughter and she decided she wanted to get into bow hunting. I was thinking that bow hunting’s very difficult and especially when you’re just getting started. I think she hunted twenty-something days before her seeing a deer and to see her go through that and be successful in the end was a pretty cool experience for me.
6) What’s the most valuable thing you’ve learned from hunting?
One of the most valuable things I’ve learned is self-reliance. I think so many times when you’re doing your thing here or there, you’re relying on other people for this, you rely on that. When I go out in the wild by myself it’s just me - instantaneous decision making and being responsible for your safety and your life.
7) What’s your go-to over-the-fire meal?
I love tomahawk-type cut steaks and just the basic steak over-the-fire is probably my go-to. I like eating it with my hands right off the grate. Pretty simple, just a little bit of seasoning, some kind of garlic salt, some kind of basic seasoning, and then right over the flame.
