Director of Corporate Services / Retail, Newmark Moses Tucker Commercial Real Estate
Number of days you hunt a season? About 25-30
Where do you hunt? Jefferson County. I’m involved with a couple hunting groups. We lease some ground near Altheimer and several of us own some ground and a natural oxbow lake in Reydell.
Club name? Home base is Hannaberry Lake Land Co. in Reydell.
What kind of gun do you use? Ruger Red Label 20-gauge over and under
Favorite duck call? Rich-N-Tone acrylic original. Color: RNT Purple Passion, for the Catholic High Rockets.
Fields, reservoir or timber? All of the above. Timber is my favorite, but when the ducks are here, I’m not too picky.
Rainy, nasty or bluebird sky? Bluebird sky. No doubt. High gray can oftentimes be frustrating.
Favorite hunting story/memory? I don’t necessarily have one particular favorite. Lots of good memories. But I really enjoy a good hunt with both my sons, Cooper and Jenkins, along with our German shorthair, Lucy. Those are fantastic memories each and every time.
What got you into hunting? Back in high school, I started hunting with friends. We loved the chase and the harvest is super rewarding. Plus, the late nights and early mornings with good buddies (and new friends) before and after the hunt is hard to beat. I was hooked immediately.
What is your most unusual “must have” in the duck blind? My Bluetooth speaker. I keep it in my wader pocket when duck hunting and also in my bird bag while dove and quail hunting. I always like having some music. Mainly Texas red dirt country.
Where is your go-to spot for breakfast/meals on a hunting weekend? Breakfast with friends, and typically plenty of kids, at neighboring Walker Jones Land Co., especially on mornings when our dear friend and cook “Sweet Cheeks” does fried pork chops. For lunch, Sportsman’s in Stuttgart is an all-time classic for a cold beer and a cheeseburger.
Which Arkansas executive calls ducks the best? Mr. David Cassinelli Sr. He and his son, my longtime close friend David Cassinelli Jr., would take us hunting back in high school and college at their club in the Black Swamp. Mr. Cassinelli is a great caller. Plus, he’s super animated and focused while working a jerk string at the same time. Really fun to watch.
