Welcome to my home page...
Glad you could drop by.
My wife Jane and I live with 2 Maine Coon cats (Ginny and Taco) on 10 acres teetering on the northern edge of the Ozarks.
We also own a farm in north central Missouri (near Moberly) on which we raise a few soybeans and do most of our deer and turkey hunting.
And I'm a partner in Mount Airy Highlands, a small cattle business rasing heirloom grassfed beef.
... a data processing consultant.
...the Conservation Editor for Outdoor Guide Magazine.
...a life member in the National Rifle Association.

What I like to do...
I like to hunt, to ride motorcycles and a few other things. Here are some websites I've put together on a few of my obsessions:
I love sport-touring on motorycles and have dabbled in long disance endurance motorcycle riding (Iron Butt Association). Loads more info and links on that here.
I've hunted whitetail, mule deer, pronghorn, turkey (Eastern & Merriams), elk, moose, black bear, dove, ducks, geese, pheasants, squirrel, rabbits, sage grouse, woodcock, and bobwhite quail. Still haven't taken an elk or bear yet though.
I am very interested in everything that happens to our wild meat from the moment it hits the ground to the time it hits the dinner plate - such as field care, butchering, storage and cooking.
I'm dogless at the moment, but usually have a golden retriever or two that I train for both upland and waterfowl - as well as to keep my feet warm on cold nights. See a memorial to one of my favorites, Josie, at her page if you would like to see one fine dog.
