I am an avid outdoorsman, athlete and conservationist. I was raised in Southern Michigan chasing pheasant with my father on my family’s farm and have lived in the Upper Peninsula, Alaska, Traverse City and now Lowell Michigan. I had the opportunity to chase large and small game in locations throughout the country. The ability to pursue game throughout a variety of terrain, states, and times of year are what draws me to upland hunting. The challenge of honing teamwork, gear and skill has become my passion. Gun dog training and guiding hunters at Pine Hill Sportsmans Club has greatly added to those skills. Although relatively new to guiding upland hunts at Pine Hill I strive to provide the best experience possible with my side kick Newman.
Newman is a 2 year old, vom Brosius line, Deutsch Drahthaar. Born a “slick” ,without a beard, Newman is often confused as a pointing lab or German Shorthair. Newman prides himself on leaving no doubt that underestimating him is a mistake. Do not be fooled by his age, he has gained the experience level of a seasoned veteran. Newman’s drive to do what he loves makes him the best hunting partner a person could request. His loving demeanor is what makes him a beloved member of the family.
Why Do I Hunt BIrds?
We look forward to the challenges every season brings. Each year we spend September through early November chasing grouse throughout Michigan and Wisconsin. Late season will bring on adventures for Kansas quail and North/South Dakota pheasants. When the opportunity arises, we do not hesitate to meet up with some distant friends for Hungarian Partridge and Chukar in the Pacific Northwest. As a team we keep our passion simple. Work together to pursue as many birds as we can find in forest or field. Also, we push each other to improve in conditioning, skill and execution. This diversity is why we love what we do!
