How many days a year do you hunt? 60 or better

Favorite piece of gear? Ruger M-77VT. Because it is amazingly accurate right out of the box. I shot my 19th round out of the gun and killed a coyote at 370 yards last fall.

Gear you splurged on? 24-foot plate boat. I built it by hand and figured if I was making the investment, why not go all out.

Most memorable outing in Illinois? 2 years ago, shot an eight-point buck and a doe about 45 minutes apart, both with a bow

What got you interested in hunting? My grandpa

How long have you been hunting? 16 years

Favorite species to hunt? Toss up between ducks and geese. Nothing like watching a flock come in with wings locked, right on top of you

What breed hunting dog do you have?
