How many days a year do you hunt? 30-40

Favorite piece of gear? My Matthews Switchback XT bow

Gear you splurged on? My bow. I wanted a good bow that would last me several years of hunting.

Most memorable outing in Illinois? Nov. 4, 2006 when I killed the buck pictured here. It was memorable because it was my first deer off of public land and it was on my late father's birthday so that made it extra special.

What got you interested in hunting? My stepfather and my friends.

How long have you been hunting? 14 years

Favorite species to hunt? Definitely deer. That's because every year its a different situation on how the deer act and it's just a challenge. I also really enjoy the great tasting meat to enjoy all year long.

Favorite places to hunt in Illinois? Cass, Fulton and Peoria counties.
