I grew up in the southernmost tip of Illinois which I still reside today. Hinting and fishing has always been a deep passion of mine. I harvested my first nice buck when I was 16 years old and all I can say is I've been hooked every since. There's rarely a day goes by that I'm not strategizing or thinking of a new method to outsmart a mature buck. Turkey hinting is also a passion of mine. It's tough to beat the sounds of the spring woods waking up in the morning.
