I was born and raised in the SW part of North Carolina. Having grown up in the country, I was introduced to the outdoors at a young age. Where I grew up, hunting and fishing was popular, so I started accompanying my father and uncles out hunting when I was 8 or 9 years old.
While I took a liking to fishing, hunting and shooting was still my favorite outdoor activity (and that’s still true today). As a child, I enjoyed hunting small game, like doves, squirrels, and rabbits. As a teenager, I started focusing on deer and turkey hunting. My first deer rifle was a lever-action 30-30 with a fixed 4 power scope.
As a married father of two boys, I don’t have the time to hunt as much as I did during my youth, but I hit the woods every chance I get. I’m also working to pass on my love of hunting to the next generation, and I hope my two boys to be part of that next generation of outdoorsmen.
So why listen to me when it comes to deer feeders?
I’m an avid deer hunter and have managed deer feeders on my leased land for the last 15 years.
I’ve worked in the outdoor sporting goods industry for the last 20+ years and specialize in hunting firearms and hunting accessories. Obviously, part of that experience includes quite a bit of experience with various deer feeders. During the day, I work for a prominent outdoor chain (possibly the most well known outdoor chain in the US) but can’t be more specific as I value my job.
When I talk about deer feeders, I’m not just speaking from my own personal experiences. I’m also speaking from all the training that I’ve received in this area from representatives of the various deer feeder brands. And that’s some pretty in-depth training as who wants to buy a deer feeder from a salesperson who doesn’t sound like he or she knows what they are talking about?
