Welcome to Draggin’ Deer Outdoors! Thank you for visiting the site and sharing our mission: BE A SPORTSMAN, MAKE A SPORTSMAN. From the moment I could hold a BB gun or fishing pole I’ve been absolutely obsessed with the outdoors. I’ve had the privilege of hunting and fishing as far south as Texas and as far north as Canada, making countless friends and memories along the way. The past few years, my passion for the outdoors has extended into not only catching big fish or chasing big bucks but introducing new people to the outdoor lifestyle. I’m so excited to see the impact Draggin’ Deer Outdoors can make in our outdoor community and I hope you are too! Let’s all get involved and do our part to BE SPORTSMAN and MAKE SPORTSMAN!

Hey everyone!  Thanks for checking out Draggin’ Deer Outdoors!

My dad got me hooked on hunting at a very young age. He would let me sit with him in the woods and always let me be a part of the process from scouting, to hunting, to game processing.  My passion for the outdoors was fueled more by my grand fathers and uncles and soon enough I was hooked!

I’ve been fortunate enough to spend time working in taxidermy and at a large outdoor retail store.  These experiences helped me learn from other experienced outdoorsmen and teach a few new comers along the way.

Being Matt’s cousin, I have spent a lot of time with him in the outdoors making countless memories.  I’m excited to be on the Draggin’ Deer Outdoors Pro Staff and I look forward to getting more people (like YOU) involved in the outdoors!

Hey everyone! Thanks for checking out the site!

My passion for the outdoors developed from an early age.  Like many Michigan kids, I grew up with an airgun and fishing pole in hand.  I’ve pursued everything from squirrels and rabbits as a youngster to deer, turkeys and coyotes as an adult. Most of my hunting takes place at our family camp (“Kamp Koldyke”) in Paw Paw, MI and I’ve been blessed to show many of my friends what hunting, fishing and the outdoors is all about. I’m looking forward to spreading the word and showing all of you what the great outdoors has to offer!

My dad introduced me to the outdoors at a young age by bringing me up to deer camp for bow and gun season.  I started out chasing squirrels and eventually was old enough to hunt whitetails on my own. I had a lot of success early on and was able to harvest two large bucks by the time I was 16. Although shooting large deer is fun, the sport is more than that to me. It’s about the time I get to spend every year hunting deer with my dad and brother in Wisconsin and taking a yearly trip to Michigan to hunt with Matt. I’ve made a lot of great friends through the sport of hunting and I can’t wait to help introduce more people to the great outdoors!

I have been obsessed with hunting ever since shooting my first doe with a shotgun at age 14.   I look forward every year to the preparation that goes into to manage a hunting property just about as much as I do actually hunting.  I just love being in the great outdoors!

Last year I got the opportunity to be in the tree with one of my best friends when he harvested his first buck.  To me being in the tree and watching someone else harvest an animal is just about as fun as doing it yourself.  I’m pumped to be a part of the Draggin’ Deer team and I look forward to getting more people involved in the great sport of hunting each year!

I grew up in a small town located in the Thumb of Michigan hunting, trapping, and fishing.  While I still occasionally hunt turkeys and jig for some eyes through the ice, my growing family has narrowed my focus to chasing and thinking mature whitetails 365 days a year.  Killing giant bucks isn’t everything to me, it’s putting all the pieces together creating memories with family and helping friends.

I look forward every year to planting food plots and implementing habitat improvements; then learning how the deer use and adjust to these features.  I can’t wait to begin sharing these improvements and all the little tricks that I have learned along the way!
