I started bowhunting 25 years ago when I was 14 years old. I enjoy hunting for whitetail deer and turkey. In Ohio where I live, it is common practice to start off bowhunting with a crossbow. My first crossbow was a Barnett Wildcat. A lot has changed in the past 25 years since I started hunting. In 2008 I started the Crossbow Nation website. It has quickly become one of the largest crossbow websites in the world. Crossbow hunting and shooting has become my life now. From managing the Crossbow Nation site to producing the Crossbow Nation TV series, crossbows are all I do. When I’m not hunting, I spend a lot of time with my family. I’m married with two young children who will soon start hunting with me. In the off seasons I spend a lot of time coaching my children who both play sports.
