I was born and raised in Kanab, Utah; a small town that is familiar to many hunters due to its close proximity to the legendary Paunsaugunt. I am blessed with two older brothers who love the outdoors as much as I do. We spent many days spotting and taking pictures of giant muleys on the coveted unit, shed hunting, and stream fishing. Some of my most cherished memories are of hunting with my dad, brothers, uncles, and cousins while spending time at Grandpa's cabin in southern Utah. Mule deer hunting has always been my (our) number one passion and elk are a close second. However, up until these past few years, the pursuit of our respective careers had forced us to put many of our passions on the backburner for far too long.
