I grew up in Macon, Georgia where hunting and fishing has always been a way of life. I was introduced to shooting sports by my father at a very young age. He taught me about ethics and gun safety as we chased quail and dove in South Georgia. My love for the outdoors grew as I learned to enjoy the outdoors and all it has to offer. My father inspired me to love everything about outdoor sports – the sport itself, the challenge it involved, and the fellowship with fellow hunters. After losing him in April of 2009, my goal is to be and advocate for the outdoors and pass the tradition on to younger generations. My father’s love for the outdoors sparked my interest in shooting sporting clays. It doesn’t have seasons and the targets are always there.
