Joe grew up in south-central Oklahoma. His passion for the out doors started at a young age, hunting rabbits with his Dad and Grandad. After graduating High School, he became a welder and fabricator, which he did for 18 years, before moving into the Sales profession. He has hunted whitetails, ducks, coyotes...and almost every other legal game animal in Oklahoma, to the pheasants of South Dakota. He says his most successful hunt was being with his son, Cooper, harvesting his first deer.
