My Story

Terry holding the bass he caught

I was born in a little town in Northern California where I grew up fishing, hunting and camping with my parents, grandparents, and all my other family. I started hunting when I was old enough to take my hunter’s safety course when I was 11 years old, and I have been hooked ever since.

I have hunted almost every animal that you can, fished rivers, streams, lakes and ponds. I have camped and owned almost anything from a tent to a cabin, and have hiked almost every popular place in California and other states. Guns have a special place in my heart, and have owned pistols, rifles, shotguns, and have even built (legally) several of them. I have even been known to be pretty good with a bow.

After finishing high school, I worked in all different areas in my community like bucking hay, cooking, and even plumbing! It wasn’t until I bought my fist computer from Kmart that I fell in love with technology. I got my degree in Computer Science, and have been working in the tech industry ever since.

I never lost my love for the forest, so when I met my wife, we would spent all year camping in tents, campers, and cabins while starting a family. Since I loved the outdoors so much, and am always interested in getting people into it, I decided to start this blog to help give tips to people that would have the same questions I had when I tried new things like duck hunting, fly fishing and even building my own guns.

It is my hope that I can take the 30+ years of knowledge I have learned and give it back to all of you here. I just started a YouTube channel and have a few videos up, but plan on adding a TON more this year.
