There is nothing in the world that Mike enjoys more than chasing big, mature whitetail deer. He has been hunting ever since he could shoot a rifle and has been addicted ever since. After only a few rifle seasons, Mike realized that he could not limit himself to 10 days in the Missouri hardwoods – he had to pick up a bow. After taking his first P&Y whitetail at the age of 16, he never looked back. Since then Mike has taken numerous trophy whitetails with archery equipment and has documented a majority of them on film. To Mike, it is more than just hunting; it is a way of life. From scouting nearly every day in the summer to shed hunting in the spring, Mike is in the field nearly every day of the year.
