I was born and raised in Cody, Wyoming located 53 miles from the East Gate of Yellowstone National Park. From a young age, my passion has been the surrounding mountains and the pursuit of the plentiful elk, deer and pronghorn. In the spring months I take advantage of the abundant shed hunting opportunities which eventually guided me to another passion, raising and training shed hunting Labrador Retrievers. We own a family run kennel named Antler Point Gun Dogs.
