I took my first steps behind birddogs with my Dad when I was 6 years old. My Dad and I hunted dove and duck, but quail seemed to be our true passion. From the first day I watched my Dad’s pointers and setters hunt and work birds, I have loved it. Especially his setter “Pete”. Since those early days with my Dad I have been fortunate enough to have hunted 7 different species of upland birds across 13 states. I had my first dog at the age of 19 and I now own 6 English Setters. I started my guiding career in 2001. I’ve worked at 4 lodges in three states. I am currently Head Guide at Wild Wing Lodge in Sturgis,Ky.
