I grew up in Creighton, NE, a small town in the Northeast corner of the state.  When I was around 8 or 9 years old, my stepfather introduced my twin brother and I to hunting.

We would tag along with him during the Nebraska rifle season, and when the turkey population started to increase in the area, he bought us turkey calls and told us to “try to make sounds like the turkeys do”.  He wasn’t a turkey hunter himself, but he had a hunch it was something we would enjoy, so he encouraged us to give it a try. He was right and we were hooked.

I purchased my first video camera when I was 17 and instantly fell in love with the filming aspect of hunting. In 2006, an out-of-state friend of mine approached me about helping manage some of the hunting ground he leased in our area. That friendship eventually led to us starting a hunting outfitting business together called Millstone Plantation. Over the next 6 years, we guided turkey and deer hunters on approximately 30,000 acres. It was an incredible learning experience and blessing to get to spend so much time in the woods and to meet hunters from around the nation.

The EHD epidemic of 2012 led us to cancel all of our deer hunts, and slow down the guiding business. The timing of this was fitting as it allowed me to focus on my growing family, growing business, and also on filming.  Shortly after, my sister introduced me to Cody Sirek, who was just as passionate about outdoor filming as I was; in small town Nebraska, this passion is a rarity. We have been hunting partners ever since. In 2016, we had the opportunity to meet Marc Freese and were honored when given the opportunity to become pro-staff for Ani-Logics Outdoors®. We now get the privilege of sharing our passion with a wider hunting community. As a father of 2 young boys, I look forward to being able to incorporate my sons and family into it as they grow.

I was raised in the small town of Brunswick, Nebraska (population less than 150 people) in Northeast Nebraska where my love for the outdoors flourished, thanks to my Dad for introducing me to bow hunting and my Grandpa who always had time to take me fishing.

Show More...

From running catfish set lines to making tree stands, scouting, and learning how to set up a bow. I knew I had to always have the great outdoors in my life.  I have learned a lot and have great memories over my years of hunting with my Dad. As I grew older I ventured out on my own a little more and started to do a lot more self-hunting.

My passion grew even more when I got the opportunity to actually start managing 80 acres of land for deer and other wildlife. I started off doing small things such as, providing quality mineral for the deer, small food plots, making deer trails through the cedar tree belts, and improving bedding so the deer would not have to leave the property as often. I was fortunate to harvest a 168” mature buck with my bow on those 80 acres, which made me extremely happy and fueled the fire to do more on the properties that I am fortunate to hunt and manage.

The 2009 season was very special in many ways to me as I harvested my biggest 168” gross, whitetail buck, with a bow and got to share one last hunt with a close dear friend of mine as he was called to hunt in heaven. Before the 2010 season I became interested in self-filming my hunts so I convinced my Mom and Dad to let me use their camera!  I assured them that I wouldn’t drop it out of the tree, which I did unfortunately… I was hooked on filming from there on out and my passion to film grew and continues to grow each year. As it turns out, the 2010 season was good to me as well, I was able to harvest ‘’Snaps’’ not the biggest buck but one that will always mean the most to me for many of reasons.  It was my first self-filmed kill on video. Because of that experience, I never hit the woods without a camera in hand.  I have had many good opportunities to harvest some very nice bucks over the years but could never get it captured all on film while solo filming.

In 2013, I decided that if I wanted to continue to filming I needed to get good high quality equipment, so I took out a loan to purchase a Canon XA20 and all the necessities to get started. Most people thought I was crazy to do that, but they just don’t understand the rush you get from it! In 2014, I was fortunate to meet Brian Wiese and help him try to capture his quest of ‘’Westerkamp” on film all while creating a friendship that goes beyond just hunting. It is refreshing to have a hunting partner that has the same goals and attitude about the great outdoors as I do.

I’m excited for what’s to come in the future and ready to be back out sitting in a tree waiting for a big mature Nebraska buck!

I was raised in a family of hunting enthusiasts, going to the woods in pursuit of various game with my father since I was a very young child. Over the years, we harvested our share of mediocre deer, but nothing notable. Seeing the huge trophy bucks being taken from other parts of the country, I wondered why we didn’t have deer of that caliber in southern Mississippi. No one thought we could grow deer of that size here. As I grew older and more passionate about hunting and wildlife, I also grew more interested in the well-being of the deer, their health, and their environment. I set a goal to grow and harvest a Boone &

Show More...

Crockett deer from our farm. That was the beginning of deer management at Ashley Farms.

As a 16-year-old high school senior bound for college, I spotted a particular young 7-point buck, about 2-1/2 years old, on our farm. I decided to see how big this buck could grow. I built feed boxes, put up some game cameras, and began to supplement his diet. I experimented with various supplements, and began implementing protein feeds and year-round food plots. When I couldn’t find the right mineral supplement, I even made my own. I had many encounters with this deer over the next 5 years and watched him grow into a true trophy buck. He was harvested by a neighbor and made the Magnolia record books! Over those 5 years, I grew from a weekend hunter into something much more.

At 31 years old, I have been a land manager and game keeper for 15 years on our southern Mississippi farm. I have fought for diversity, because no one seems to think you can grow big deer in Mississippi. I am here to tell you that you can grow not only big deer, but record-worthy bucks! I’ve proven that intensive management, the right products to give the deer the nutrition they are lacking, and allowing the deer to mature are the key aspects of maintaining a healthy farm and a healthy herd, in spite of less than perfect dirt. As proof that hard work, perseverance, and proper management go a long way, we’ve harvested multiple whitetails over 170! If I can grow big deer here in southern Mississippi, you can grow big deer wherever you are.

I was born in Newark, New Jersey where I grew up hunting and fishing at a young age of 8. We made yearly trips hunting the mountains in New Castle, Virginia on family property and state game lands. At age 10, my parents relocated to Florida, which introduced me to a whole new learning curve to hunting the south. I’m an avid archer who enjoys hunting and fishing with my bow as well as target archery. I share my joy for archery and the outdoors with my wife and children who love it as well!!  I’ve been using Ani-Logics products now close to 3 years! I love the results! I’m a huge science geek and wanted to supplement a product that was biologically balanced that would give me the results other than trying to supplement with processed protein pellets. Especially, hunting mainly here in Florida. I wanted something to help boost antler growth! I started with Mineral Dirt 180 and was amazed at how much deer were visiting the site. I then added Supplement GOLD on a yearly basis.

What’s amazing is how the deer have responded in antler growth as well as healthy fawns hitting the ground!

I grew up in NE Oklahoma. I was introduced to hunting by my dad and grandfathers. They would always hunt quail, squirrel, and rabbits in SE Kansas along with their annual Thanksgiving pheasant hunting trip to western Kansas. I would always be waiting at the door for them to get back to show off their harvests. At age 8, I got the opportunity to go with them for the first time, and from there my love of the outdoors began.

Each time we would go after upland and small game we would always stop and watch the deer and turkey, although, we didn’t know the first thing about hunting either. As the next few years went by, I got more and more interested in deer and turkey hunting. I had several buddies that I grew up with that were brought up in deer and turkey hunting families and I always enjoyed hearing their stories.

In 1998, I finally got the opportunity to go on my first deer hunt. I will always remember that day. It was a snow covered foggy December morning and it was cold. As the sun rose I could make out two silhouettes around 300 yards to the east of us. I kept thinking finally I had my own deer hunting story and couldn’t wait to tell my buddies about it, and I hadn’t even pulled the trigger. My grandfather told me to pick out the biggest doe, as I lifted his 300 Winchester, I slowly put the cross arrows on the top of the deer’s back, “slow on the trigger,” my grandfather said, Boom! as the smoke cleared, I heard the words every deer hunter loves, “you got it!” At that moment, I finally knew what my buddies had been describing in all their stories and now I had my own story to share.

The following year I got my first bow and from there my lifelong archery passion began. I have harvested numerous Pope and Young deer on both public and private ground and still enjoy hunting both to this day. As the years went by my love for archery hunting grew and grew and I wanted to share my experiences with others. I started to self-film and quickly fell in love with it and the challenges that came with it. A few years later I started the KOAM Outdoors media pages with hunts covering Kansas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Missouri on both public and private ground. I continue to learn each year and enjoy producing videos of what I do throughout the season to be successful. I cover everything from tree stand placement, hunting and calling strategy’s, food plots, along with mineral and supplement feeding.

Ani-Logics Outdoors has lead the way for achieving deer management by delivering great mineral and supplement products that keep your deer herd healthy and fight diseases such as Epizootic Hemorrhagic Disease (EHD).

I’ve been a hunter my entire life, beginning with growing up on a dairy farm in lower Michigan. When I moved to the Keweenaw Peninsula of Michigan in 2001, I experienced a big learning curve in trying to track down those elusive Upper Peninsula mature bucks. My forestry and real estate career have allowed me to spend extensive time exploring and scouting the big woods over the last 17+ years.  I have been filming my journey towards consistently tracking down big deer for over a decade now, and I enjoy sharing those adventures with viewers all over the world.

I run a popular real estate/hunting website,, that features a live webcam tucked deep in the north country. The webcam has a large viewership, where visitors enjoy watching deer, bear, turkey and more feeding on Ani-Logics products!

I didn’t necessarily grow up in the typical hunting family in Northwestern PA.  My dad hunted as kid and young adult, but had more of a passion for music.  I hung out with the kids that hunted and fished when I was young and went on my first deer hunt at the age of 13 in the Allegeny National Forest of Pennsylvania.

I remember that first morning of rifle season like it was yesterday.  Stump-sitting on my blaze orange heat-a-seat in my once-piece blaze orange coveralls looking over a vast gully in the pitch black! As the world awoke for another day, that’s when I saw it in the gray light!  My first sighting of a deer in the woods!!  Although it was only a doe, I knew instantly that I was hooked!!  She slowly browsed by me and made her way into a thicket on top of the ridge. Although I didn’t see a buck that first day, I couldn’t wait to get out and hunt again!

Since that first hunt many years ago, I have transformed into what many people call a 365 hunter.  There isn’t a day when I don’t think of  managing property for wildlife, where my next stand should be, what to plant, where to plant, what to feed, where to put my next game cam.  I have developed such a passion for hunting that I also have made it my career.  I am currently part of the management team at my local Field and Stream Shop located in Erie, Pennsylvania. You can catch me many times being out on the sales floor getting carried away talking about attractants, hunting products, treestand strategies, food plots, game cameras, etc.

Being asked to be part of the Prostaff team at Ani-logics Outdoors is a great honor! Their philosophy and mission is the definition of who I am as a land steward, game manager, and hunter!  I truly believe that providing wildlife and game with added nutrition and supplementation can only benefit them and assist you as a hunter and/or manager to help you achieve your personal goals on your hunting grounds!

I grew up in Hutchinson MN, a small farming community west of the twin cities. I got my first exposure of hunting when I was 4 years old.  Thanks to my dad for taking a 4-year-old on opening day of Wisconsin gun opener I got to experience deer hunting for the first time. I still remember to this day him bundling me up with orange and us walking to his tripod over looking a food plot on the edge of the woods. I remember him telling me to be still and quiet as I sat at his feet on the tripod. It wasn’t 15 minutes later that I was shaking his leg as a nice buck was chasing a doe in the food plot. My dad shot him twice and the brass hit me right in the head and the buck crashed in the swamp. Both my dad and myself were shaking so bad from “Buck Fever”. From that moment I was hooked on hunting whitetails.

While going to college at St. Cloud State where I ran track and field and was in the Army Reserves, I spent all my free time, which wasn’t much, on the new property my dad bought in Polk County, Wisconsin, right next to where my mother grew up. The piece of property was just logged before we bought it. Looking like a wasteland, my dad and I began scouting and putting up stands. With the help of Ani-Logic blocks we were able to pattern some mature buck in our first season. Both my brother and I harvested mature bucks the first day hunting the property. Since then we have harvested 9 mature bucks after only owning the property for 4 years. I owe all my hunting success to my dad for teaching me everything about hunting and the outdoors. Something I hope I can pass onto my kids one day. I have been very blessed to share many wonderful memories in the outdoors with my dad and brother something I will cherish forever.

I am very honored to be apart of Ani- Logic Outdoors Pro Staff team. They are a great company with even better staff. It has always been a dream of mine to get into the hunting industry. I have used their products for many years and have had wonderful success. I love the research behind the products and the results they produce. “There is no off season” describes not only the company but myself as a hunter!

I’m an avid hunter and personal trainer. I love to hunt everything from small to big game. I’ve been fortunate enough to travel around North America and take some world class animals.

I started hunting when I was 10 years old with my family, on public lands, in Western PA. As I got older and my love of deer hunting grew, I became more serious. It was no longer about shooting a buck each year; I needed to be out in the woods scouting for quality deer and finding new places to hunt. Living in Western PA, this was not an easy task. Due to poor QDMA practices in the state, deer were hard to find in the mountains.

I would use trail cameras to determine what deer were living in the area and what their travels patterns were. I would take every precaution to avoid detection from the deer and other hunters. Once I found the ideal locations, it was not unusual for me to walk miles, up and down hills; carrying tree stands tree stands and climbing sticks to setup my stands. Fortunately, my other passion and full-time job is in the fitness industry; this made the treks into the woods, loaded with equipment, a little easier.

Growing up, I dreamed of owning my own land someday. That dream finally became a reality in 2019, when I purchased my first property in southern Iowa. I moved to Iowa in January, I can only imagine the excitement I’ll feel hunting turkey and deer, on my own land. I cannot wait to get my hands dirty creating the ideal habitat to attract and hold deer. I look forward to my new partnership with Ani-logics Outdoors and seeing the results of using their products first hand.

I’m from Rushville, Indiana, which is about an hour Southeast of Indianapolis. I first started hunting when I was about 10 years old when my grandpa and my uncles introduced me to coyote hunting. I first got into deer hunting when I was about 13 and as I started to learn the ways of hunting, I became more and more interested in deer; big deer.

I harvested my first buck when I was 16 years old on the second day of youth season. From 2014 until 2016 I was after a buck I nicknamed “Curve”.

Show More...

I watched this buck grow for 3 years and he ended up being harvested by a neighbor. He ended up scoring around 160” and this buck is what really sparked my interest in the management side of deer hunting because I was able to watch him mature and grow. Ever since, I’ve chased after the most mature deer in my herd because I like seeing them reach their full potential and then feeling the satisfaction when your hard work and dedication finally turns into success.

I spent a lot of time over the years trying to figure out which mineral supplement is best and after about 5 years of experimenting I came to the conclusion that Ani-Logics was the answer. I really enjoy seeing my deer herd reach their full potential and I try to provide them with the proper nutrients they need to do so, that is why I use Ani-Logics. I know for a fact that Ani-Logics mineral provides all of the nutrients my deer need to keep them healthy, while also helping them grow and I have seen the results over the last few years.

As I’ve grown as a hunter, I take pride in harvesting a particular deer I’m after each year who is also the most mature deer within the herd. I love the challenge of chasing and harvesting a particular buck and how you continue to learn something new, each and every year. I harvested “Triple B” my first ever “Booner” and my first compound bow kill this past season on October 24, 2017. He grossed around 185”. This was a hunt and a deer I will never forget, as everything finally came together and my hard work had finally paid off.

I’m very fortunate to be a part of the Pro-Staff team at Ani-Logics and it is a great honor. I truly believe that we have the same values and goals when it comes to managing whitetail deer and helping them reach their full potential every year. I’m also very proud to say that I’m a member of not only a great company, but a great group of people as well. I look forward to what’s to come in the future here at Ani-Logics!

I was born and raised in the outdoors here in central North Carolina. I have been passionately pursuing whitetail deer for over 20 years now since the age of 8 years old. Over the years I have been fortunate to harvest a number of great whitetail deer in my area . In my adult years I have developed a passion for whitetail management and getting the most out of my local herd. Thousands of trail camera pictures a year, meticulously combing over and studying my herd which in turn led to an obsession that runs deep within. I have been filming my own hunts for the past 6 years and enjoy capturing the action for all to see the hard work and fruits of my labor pay off.Naturally, Ani-Logics was the perfect fit for what I wanted out of my herd and offered results year after year in the form of consistently harvesting mature whitetails. I am very fortunate and excited about the opportunity to be a part of such a great company that offers a full scale supplement program I can stand behind and count on day in and day out.

I’ve been very fortunate in the past years to harvest/manage some very good deer. In October of 2016, I harvested a buck that grossed 201 5/8”. I watched and managed that deer for a few years and it was like a dream come true to be able to actually put my hands on him. All the long days of planting food plots, running cameras, providing the proper protein/minerals, and scouting was all worth it in the end.

As time went on, I saw deer hunting strategies and techniques continue to evolve with more usage of mineral and supplement feeding. I messed around with a few products, but didn’t fully understand their purpose until the 2012 EHD hit. After walking up on several dead hit list bucks, I knew I needed to start protecting my deer herd better.

I did a lot of research on the best products available and everything led me to Ani-Logics. I’ve been running their products for several years now and have noticed the deer are looking healthier and better equipped for winter more each year. There are a lot more deer holding on my properties and antler growth has met my expectations.

I grew up on a beef farm in Southeast Ohio, which is where I still live, work, and hunt today. I started out rabbit and squirrel hunting with my grandpa when I was 8 years old, which really got me interested in the outdoors. When I was 10, I was finally able to go on my first deer hunt, with my uncle as my guide; I harvested my first whitetail. From that moment on I was hooked! After a couple Ohio gun seasons I needed a reason, and a way, to be in the woods as often as possible, and that’s when I found bow hunting. Through bow hunting whitetails I have been able to study the outdoors and mature as a hunter, as well as find something that I am truly passionate about.  

Show More...

As I get older, the reasons I hunt have changed from wanting to go out and harvest a deer, to becoming obsessed about only harvesting a particular deer, the right deer, and always the most mature deer. I have learned that in order to make that goal and obsession into a reality you have to be a “365 Hunter”. Which to me, it comes down to herd management; by harvesting only the most mature deer in a herd, keeping a desirable buck to doe ratio, and providing them with the habitat and nutrition they need to thrive and grow to their full potential. Through my management practices I have been able to harvest several mature deer ranging from 130″ to 163″ gross scores. While I’m always hoping to produce and harvest a “Booner”, it’s more important to me to harvest a mature buck than a young one with a big rack.

I now run 25-30 trail cameras year round on several parcels totaling around 800 acres. I start with mineral sites in late winter through early fall, and keep the feeders full of supplement year round. I own and operate a food plot business on the side, and plant annual food plots for multiple clients and myself. The most rewarding part of managing deer has been getting my family involved, I have three younger cousins that are extremely eager to learn and get out and hunt as much as possible and it is always a blast taking them. I have recently begun filming our hunts, so that we will have them to share for years to come.

I am very fortunate to have found a company like Ani-Logics Outdoors, who has the same values and goals as I do, when it comes to managing whitetails year round. As a pro-staff member, I am able to put their products to work in my management program, and provide them with the feedback needed to continue to produce the best products on the market.

I began hunting around my 11th or 12th birthday. Although I didn’t have any luck until I was 13, I loved every chance I got to spend outdoors, whether it was deer or turkey hunting or fishing. I was always thinking about the next chance I’d have. I remember the minutes leading up to my first deer. The excitement, the shakes, the uncontrollable breathing and the rush after finally squeezing the trigger. That rush still gets me to this day at the age of 27. I love hunting point blank, period.

I haven’t killed what society would call a trophy buck yet, or turkey with 6 beards yet, or a whole limit of banded ducks. I have enjoyed some amazing sunrises and sunsets and seen things that people who don’t hunt or fish will never see. I’ve also shared some awesome memories with great friends in the outdoors as well as harvested a lot of deer, a few gobblers, and ducks, and even a rabbit or 2 here in Georgia.

I am lucky enough to have a wife that enjoys hunting almost as much as I do. I was blessed to be with her and film her when she killed her first deer. Seeing her light up after the buck dropped, was a priceless moment, and I pray daily that I’ll be blessed to experience that with my son, whenever that day may come. Being outdoors with your family are special times, and I wish more families would venture out and try it. I am honored to be a part of the Ani-Logics team, and look forward to the future, I stand behind and believe in the products they have. The proof is in the product. I used it last year, and it blew all other competition out of the water! When you’re able to get over 400+ pictures in weeks’ time at one spot on one camera and see deer you’ve never seen or thought were dead, all killing the spot you put your Ani-Logics at, then you know you’ve found some good stuff. Ani-Logics is taking the deer supplements game to a whole other level.

There just isn’t anything better than waking up at 3 or 4 am, to go freeze or sweat your butt off. Whether in a duck blind, a treestand, or walking a few steep ridges. You know that there is a small chance that you might get to shoot a duck or a turkey in the face or lay the smackdown on a nanny doe or a swamp daddy buck. My life revolves around faith, family, friends, and the outdoors. Hunting isn’t a hobby in my life, its apart of my life and lifestyle.

Georgia is always on my mind, especially when it comes to hunting whitetails! Growing up in a big family full of hunters and fishermen, I can’t remember a weekend not spent in the woods or on a boat. At a young age my father showed me his passion and love for the outdoors and naturally it rubbed off on me.

As I became older, more mature and an avid hunter I began to see the big picture. Not only was harvesting a mature trophy buck my goal, I was also becoming more interested in herd health and managing the property for years to come. Now as a young adult I love the off season almost as much as the hunting season itself. All the prep work, all the maintenance, and especially all the nutrients and minerals provided for our deer make the hunting season that much better! Pro baseball players don’t just show up opening day and start hitting homeruns, they put in all the hardwork during the off season and the results speak for itself when its game time. Thats how I hunt whitetails, if you put in all the work during Spring and Summer, you will see the results when its game time. And nobody will work as hard as the guys and gals at Ani-Logics. They do all the leg work so all we have to do as hunters is put out the product and let the good times roll!

I grew up on the Satilla River in southeast Georgia and gained my passion of the outdoors from my father, James. From an early age he spent an enormous amount of time with me, grooming me into the outdoor enthusiast I am today. Although I did not know it at the time, he was teaching me how to become a husband, father, and provider through lessons in the outdoors.

He also made sure we had fun and we killed some beautiful bucks throughout the years. Now I have two sons of my own and a third one on the way. My passion is still to grow and harvest mature bucks, but to also educate my sons on the outdoors, make memories with them they will never forget, teach them the importance of God’s creation, and pass on the legacy of a being an outdoorsman that my father instilled in me.

Over the years my knowledge of deer has grown tremendously, and my views have evolved. I previously focused predominately on rack size and was missing part of the bigger picture. Rack size is only a small portion of what is important when managing deer. Age, population, buck to doe ratio, and heard health all play an important role in managing your specific property. I am excited to be partnering with Ani-Logics as they have the products to grow and sustain great deer and a healthy herd. As long you have a plan, put in the work, and be diligent you can turn any property you manage into a whitetail haven. Just remember, there is no off season.

I grew up in a small town in Eastern North Dakota. At a young age I tagged along with family, and family friends, rifle hunting for whitetails. We would do deer drives, which were very action packed and fun. That is where my passion began.

Later, when it was my turn to draw the tags, the deer population took a crash. With a few bad winters and loss of habitat the state couldn’t issue as many tags, and the wait to get a rifle tag was too long for me. At that point I took up bow hunting. This is where I became absolutely addicted to the sport of hunting, and especially whitetails.

 The connection with the deer year after year is what intrigues me the most. Targeting specific bucks and watching them mature throughout the years is something that I don’t get with other types of hunting. This is where my focus on the management side of things started.

During high school I hunted pretty hard, but was mainly only able to hunt on the weekends with school, sports, work, and other activities taking up a majority of the time. I was able to harvest a few bucks, all in North Dakota. After high school, I attended the University of North Dakota and earned a Fisheries and Wildlife Biology degree. During college, I had a little more free time. I invested all of this free time into hunting and fishing. My passion for whitetails really grew.

College classes and work experiences taught me a lot about wildlife and their behavior during the different seasons. I used this knowledge to manage the land. I started running a lot of trail cameras and getting an inventory on many different properties to find mature bucks. I started to plant grasses, trees, and food plots to improve the deer habitat, helping them get through the winter and get more fawns on the ground. I became more involved with the preseason part of hunting and now that’s what I really enjoy about the whole process. After college, I started hunting big game out-of-state.

I love all types of hunting, but my connection with the whitetails is something I can’t get enough of. This is why I am always on the lookout for new ways to help deer populations and increase the health of the herd, and Ani-Logics is my newest secret.

I love hunting whitetail with my bow or rifle, given the choice, I do prefer my bow! I hunt several properties in Missouri as well as a couple in neighboring states. My home town is St Peter’s Missouri.  If I’m not prepping for deer season, I’m hunting. If it’s not season I’m fishing. I love the outdoors. I’m so excited to see what the future bring using Ani-Logics and being part of an awesome Pro-Staff.

I grew up in a small town in Northwest Iowa. I got the itch for hunting and the outdoors when I was only 6 years old. I started following my dad and uncle around hunting for deer and pheasants. Even though I was too small to actually hunt, I never wanted to be left behind. I always wanted to tag along and help carry birds or help drag deer back to the truck. As I got older, the obsession got worse, and hunting was all I ever thought about. I began spending all my time scouting for wild game or sitting behind a fishing pole. In high school I slowly began focusing more and more on whitetails. Before I knew it, I was obsessed with chasing these totally unpredictable animals and have never looked back. I started wanting to learn more and more about them. I love the never ending chess match these whitetails provide us with year after year.

I got into filming hunts at a young age after watching all sorts of hunting videos on VHS. I loved the extra challenge it added to the hunt. I started filming some on my best friends on their properties, and eventually started making my own home movies. Over the years I got more and more into the filming aspect of hunting and eventually that became just as important, if not more important to me than actually hunting. I spent more time filming whitetails throughout the year than I did hunting them. Don’t get me wrong, I love to hunt them, but I love the challenge of filming them even more. Making sure you have all the angles covered and all the extra footage you need to make a killer home video is more exciting to me now.

Through a previous job I was able to meet my new hunting partner Buddy Hanner. We started talking about deer one day while I was working and after talking for over an hour I learned that he was just as passionate about hunting and filming whitetails as I was. He invited me down to check out his farm and the rest is history. He liked hunting them more than filming them and I loved filming more, so it was a perfect match. As the years have gone by we have been blessed with the ability to manage so much amazing hunting ground in Iowa. Growing and managing these magnificent animals has consumed our lives. We do every thing we can to provide them with the best habitat and best nutrition possible to help them all reach their full potential. We’ve spent countless years trying different types of minerals and supplements, but it wasn’t until we talked with Bob and Tim at Ani-Logics that we truly believe we have found the right combinations to provide our deer herd with the best nutrition possible. Through countless conversations and meeting with these two gentlemen, we were given the opportunity to join the Prostaff team for Ani-Logics. Whitetail management and nutrition is our passion and hopefully we can help others create their own hunting paradise through our own experiences!

I have lived my whole life in Southern Ohio, in one of the best counties for whitetails in the world. Since I was 9 years old I have had a passion for chasing big bucks, thanks to my role model and best friend; my father. He taught me how to bow hunt, and I have been hooked for 12 years straight. However, it wasn’t until last year when my family purchased an 250 acre farm that I realized the importance of providing deer with the right nutrition, which is when I found out about Ani-Logics.

I have seen the positive effect it has on my deer herd, not to mention it draws them in like a magnet. It truly has changed the way I hunt, for the better.

Aside from bowhunting, I am currently entering my senior year of college, where I will graduate with a Bachelor’s degree in Marketing. I am the founder of Buckeye Hunting, and I do home remodeling on the side and most importantly, I do all of this in the name of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

I’ve lived in Leitchfield, Kentucky my entire life. I began deer hunting when I was 10, my grandpa would take me a couple times a year during rifle season.  My dad also took me hunting a few times and I was with me when I killed my first deer, a small buck.

 I’ll never forget the excitement of that day as long as I live. When I was seventeen I met a new friend from my youth group at church who loved hunting as much as I did.  As we began to talk about our passion for hunting we decided to begin filming some of our hunts.  We are now co-founders of a YouTube channel called Priority Outdoors TV. I am also blessed to be able to share my love of hunting with my fiancé Kenzie and her dad. I love hunting and the outdoors and I literally count down the days till the season opens each year.  I have a farm that I hunt on and have recently began utilizing some new hunting tactics such as scent control, land management and herd health. I truly believe in the product that Anilogics produces because I have seen the results first hand.
