With all the hustle and bustle of ATA and SHOT Show, I didn’t get a chance to formally say how excited I am to be back on the North American Hunter/North American Hunting Club team. I have been incredibly busy hunting and producing TV for the past year-and-a-half, but I’m thrilled to be back!
Straight out of college, I worked as a producer for “North American Hunter-TV” for 4 years, then decided to pursue a career as an on-camera freelance host. After two great seasons on my own, I’ve joined back up with the team and look forward to an incredible year.
I’ve been a hardcore hunter since I was a little kid. My mom and dad brought me along on all their hunting excursions in central Minnesota; by the time I was 12, I was begging to hunt and not just go along for the ride. During my senior year of high school my parents allowed me to get a work driving permit, which allowed me to bowhunt each morning before school.
Hunting has always been my passion, and I vowed to find a way to hunt for a living some day. I graduated from St. Cloud State University with a double major in TV Broadcasting and Spanish, then immediately set out to find a job in the hunting industry. Unable to find a full-time job, I offered to work for free at North American to gain experience. After a 4-month internship, I was offered a position as a full-time producer. During my 4 years I not only produced a variety of hunting shows, but also spent every spare moment filming on my own.
After a lot of hard work and dedication, I feel privileged to be back at North American—where my career began—but now as the host of “NAH-TV.” As this blog shows, I’ll be doing some other things for North American, too.
I have numerous hunts in store for the upcoming season, and can’t wait to get back in the field this spring. I put together a short highlight reel to show you what I’ve been up to the past couple seasons, so I hope you enjoy!
