Married to a lovely girl from Florida- Jeanine
Interests- Bird hunting with our sweet Pudelpointer Koa, calling in wild turkeys, big game hunting for deer, elk, bear and wild pigs, fly fishing, clamming, crabbing, spearfishing, camping, seeing my kids grow up, tinkering in the shop building stuff.
Likes- sharing ono food and talking story with good friends, showers at the end of the day, gathering around a cozy outdoor fire, sharing awesome views with family and friends, listening to a stream, rustling trees and the sounds of wildlife without the noise of vehicles or a boom box.
Dislikes- mean people, crowds, people walking in the house with shoes on, people who think a party is having a bowl with chips and dip as "the food", walking up a dirt road quietly when a lazy ATVer blows by you, litter bugs, folks who think tossing a cigarette butt ain't littering, diesel exhaust, appliances and vehicles dumped in the woods, and people who can't look away from their electronic devices long enough to take in the beautiful sights and sounds around them.
