Greenhead presents this year’s Executive Q&A featuring a slate of executives, headed by Gov. Asa Hutchinson, sharing the moments, tips, guns and gadgets that have made their time afield special.
Number of days you hunt a season?
Where do you hunt?
The White River near Tichnor.
What kind of gun do you use?
A 12-gauge Remington 11-87 semi-automatic.
Duck call skill level?
I’m spoiled by my husband, Scott, who does all the calling.
Fields, reservoir or timber?
Rainy, nasty or bluebird sky?
Favorite hunting story/memory?
It’s impossible to pick just one. Spending time outdoors with my family watching the sunrise always makes my day. But the time I caught my hair on fire with a blind heater is probably my funniest memory.
What got you into hunting?
My husband. His patience is infinite.
If you have children do you take them duck hunting? If so what are some of the highlights from these youth hunts?
My two boys, Connor (12) and Cole (9), love to duck hunt. They started at age 2 with toy cork “pop” guns. At 4, they graduated to BB guns. Connor now shoots a pump 20-gauge, and Cole uses a single-shot 20-gauge. Cole’s first duck was a pretty, banded wood duck so he was immediately hooked.
What is your most unusual “must have” in the duck blind?
A Swell bottle full of hot coffee and raw almonds.
