As for today, I reside in East Central Illinois in close proximity to the Embarrass and Wabash Rivers. In addition to being a lifelong hunter, I spent a few years fishing local in regional bass tournament circuits. While it was a great deal of fun, I never seemed to have ample time to prepare for the fall hunting season. I have since given that up to concentrate on the hunting. My hunting has generally been in the vicinity of where I grew up with the goal of putting meat in the freezer. Now that my daughter is grown and my job a little less demanding, I am planning on adding at least one out of state hunting trip (two if I’m lucky!) each year. My focus has also shifted from meat in the freezer to mounts on the wall!! I have been fortunate enough to have been able to purchase a portion of the family farm where I grew up, ensuring that I will have a place to hunt until I can no longer draw a bow or shoulder a shotgun. There are abundant deer and turkey as well as the usual small game. I will even have the opportunity to shake the dust off my trapping skills this winter as several beaver have set up housekeeping and are causing a bit of destruction! 2006 will be the first year that this land has seen any kind of wildlife management practices. It will be a long and slow process but I am looking very forward to seeing the results! I have also just recently become the proud “mom” of a WHD puppy, Aryl. He is destined to be a blood tracking dog, specifically bred for that purpose, and will be trained to recover wounded game. His natural ability is very impressive and I hope to eventually offer a volunteer deer recovery service in our area.
I make my living as a Manufacturing Accountant, holding a BSB in that area. I also have college certificates in Industrial Equipment Maintenance and Wildlife and Forestry Conservation. I like to walk the fields and streams looking for Indian artifacts and have a small collection. I dabble a bit in genealogy and love to read about history. The one thing on my list of items to yet accomplish is to take a cinnamon bear with my longbow. (Although any bear would do, I really would like a cinnamon!!) Stay tuned for that one...
