Principal/Structural Heart Consultant, Boston Scientific Corporation
Number of days you hunt a season? My goal is 20-25 days.
Where do you hunt? Occasionally on a WMA, but mainly Reydell, Humprey and Carlisle
Club name? Bayou Hunt Club
What kind of gun do you use? Benelli SBE
Favorite duck call? Rich-N-Tone
Fields, reservoir or timber? Timber is incredible, but [I] hunt fields also for ducks and geese.
Rainy, nasty or bluebird sky? Bluebird and nasty. … I’m not that angry anymore for the rain.
Favorite hunting story/memory? I would say it was a number of years ago when it was youth day. Terrible weather, nasty rain and howling winds at around 5 a.m. A friend and I took both my boys to a local WMA that he had scouted a few days prior. By the time we got to the hole, the rains had stopped. The boys wanted to call their own ducks that morning, so I just sat back and watched. Hundreds of mallards poured through the treetops as we sat back and watched one of nature’s majestic sites. One mallard actually swam into my youngest son’s leg. It didn’t take long for them to limit that morning. They still talk about it to this day.
What got you into hunting? I started going with my friends and their families at around the age of 13. We hunted the WMAs of south Arkansas and loved it.
Where is your go-to spot for breakfast/meals on a hunting weekend? I usually cook a lot, but when I don’t, a great burger can be had at Sportsman’s Drive In in Stuttgart. But my favorite invite is at Walker Jones Hunt Club when the chef, Sweet Cheeks, cooks up a meal. It’s a family favorite.
If you have children do you take them duck hunting? If so, what are some of the highlights from these youth hunts? Yes I do. Alex, 20 and a 17-year-old, Caleb. My favorite hunts are with them and their friends. I love passing on the sport of duck hunting to the next generation.
