Mikey Clark, Avid saltwater angler from Charleston, South Carolina
Everyone knows me as Mikey. Fly fishing is my passion with much love for the woods as well. I am a firm believer in catch and release. I have been working with SCDNR and their fish tagging program for the last 4 years. I currently hold the Louisiana state record sheepshead on a fly rod at 9.88lbs. Although the woods and water are my obsession, my wife and kids come first.
Jessica Zuppan, Northeast Georgia
I am from Habersham County in Northeast Georgia and am a Certified Surgical Technologist in the Operating Room and an Exercise and Sport Science student. I am married with 2 dogs, 19 chickens, 1 duck, and 2 pigs. I grew up always being around deer hunting with my dad, brother, and uncles being hunters, but I didn’t really get into it until my late teens. I was the only girl in the family that really showed any interest in the outdoor lifestyle, so I wasn’t exactly taken seriously as a hunter. I shot my first buck at age 18 on my first solo hunt. But it wasn’t until I married the man of my dreams that hunting became a way of life for me. My husband really pushed me (currently still does) to improve my skills as a hunter. He introduced me to turkey hunting and I was immediately hooked. In addition to hunting deer and turkey, I hunt waterfowl, dove, rabbits, coyote, beaver, and fox. Hunting has single-handedly taught me more life lessons than any other experience. I am so thankful to live in a country where we have the freedom to hunt for food that God has provided for us.
Wendell Hershberger, South Carolina
'Sit right here on this stump', my dad told me as he handed me my 20ga, single shot. I was 12 years old and since that day I have been hooked on the outdoor life. I was born and raised in Abbeville SC, and trapped fox and coyotes for 10 years then fished and hunted the rest of the time. As I get older, the love of hunting does not diminish. Whether it's taking my kids to the pond to fish or spending a week in the Midwest whitetail hunting with my friends, it's a way of life. When not in a tree, you can find me building kitchen cabinets at our shop, fixing fence or working the cows on the farm. God has blessed me with three wonderful kids and a wife that also love the outdoors, and for this I am thankful.
John Smith, Northwest Alabama
I am an active Outdoorsman/Gamekeeper that loves hunting and fishing more than anything.
Katie Morgan, Georgia
I grew up hunting and fishing. My dad was an avid offshore fisherman so he fueled my love of the water. I started bow hunting a few years ago and spend most of my time with that. I have a black lab named Maggie. She is our dove and duck dog. I also have 5 chickens. I love being outside with Mags, my chickens, working in the garden, on the water and in the stand!

Alex Malcom, Northeast Georgia
I am an avid hunter who loves the outdoors. I enjoy hunting every type of bird, but ducks and geese are my favorite. There is nothing better than enjoying a sunrise over a decoy spread. When I'm not hunting, I enjoy spending time with my wife and watching Georgia football.
Ryne Rankin, Northeast Georgia
Ryne is a former UGA Football Letterman (2013-2016) who majored in Agriculture Business as well as Agriculture Economics, but football and school isn’t the only thing he loves! He also is infatuated by the outdoors more than anything! His father Marc started taking him hunting/fishing ever since he could walk. Whether it was becoming a pro at snagging a few blue gills onto the dock with a Spider-Man pole or shooting his first deer ever with 410 single shot at the age of 7, he quickly fell in love with being an outdoorsman. If it has a pulse and can be hunted Ryne is probably out there trying to fill his tag! When Ryne isn’t hunting, he is enjoying the time well spent with his wife, Makenzie, and their Catahoula hunting dog, Grits.
Chap Bugg, Northeast Georgia

Bri Carr, Northeast Georgia
My name is Bri Carr and I am from Madison County, Ga! I am currently in school to become a Respiratory Therapist. I started going to sit in a stand with my dad around the age of three. I have so many memories of sitting in a stand with my dad and a deer or a turkey walking out in front of us and him letting me shoot at it with my B.B. gun, then us going tracking for blood. I knew then I had such a passion for hunting and wanted to continue to learn more!
Garrett Bastón, NE Georgia
At a very young age I was introduced to hunting and fishing by my father, who has taught me more about the outdoors than I’ll probably ever be able to remember. I have a love for singing and songwriting and play shows from South Carolina to Georgia. Though I love music, my true passion is the outdoors. I’ve turkey hunted from Georgia to Florida and duck hunted all the way up to North Dakota. Whether I am flushing quail over a bird-dog or catching catfish on the river, I feel most at home when I’m outdoors. Though I enjoy ending the day with my limit, I have learned through the years the best thing about being outdoors is the friendship and fellowship you have while you’re there. The memories I’ve made and look forward to making are some that will last a lifetime.

Chad Adkins, Georgia
I am Chad Adkins from Powder Springs, GA. I grew hunting on a family farm outside of Macon, Ga with my brothers since I could walk. Soon it would turn into a huge passion of mine. We continue to hunt that 200 acre farm as well as hunting down in South Georgia chasing whitetails. We travel out west to chase greenheads as soon as the season hits. We recently just got back from North Dakota and soon will be in Kansas and Arkansas. Every hunting season is a huge excitement for us enjoying with people that have the same passion for it.
Will Townsend, Northeast Georgia
I’m a Sheriff’s Deputy from Northeast Georgia, but when I’m not fighting crime you can find me in the great outdoors! Bow hunting is my true passion, but being in the duck blind comes in a close second. When I’m not hunting I enjoy spending time with my wife, Lauren, and my three pups at home.
Daniel Phillips, Northeast Georgia
I currently work as a pharmacist in my hometown of Hartwell, Georgia and spend most of my time outside of work enjoying the great outdoors. My love for the outdoors started at a very early age tagging along with my grandaddy chasing longbeards all across Northeast Georgia. I love all types of hunting, but deer and turkey hunting are the two that stand out above the rest to me. My true passion is managing our farm to provide the best habitat and nutrition possible for a healthy deer herd and to grow big whitetail bucks. There is nothing more satisfying than harvesting a mature buck that you have watched grow over the past 3-5 years thanks to your hard work. I'm a member of the Quality Deer Management Association and strongly believe in their management practices. Let those young bucks grow! Go Dawgs!!

It’s just something about seeing ducks work a decoy spread or even the quickness of a wood duck coming in on top of you. I also have a strong love for Labrador retrievers. There’s nothing better than getting to hunt with man’s best friend and to see how incredible smart they are. I also enjoy deer and turkey hunting.
Dale Sanders, South Carolina
I’m from Hartwell, GA, but now live in South Carolina. I volunteer with a men's ministry called Ironman Outdoors and we lead hunting/fishing retreats all up and down the eastern part of the US.

I have a passion for introducing young kids to the outdoors, that way they can carry out the tradition of hunting.

We are both avid bow hunters and also enjoy hunting other game and fishing. When it’s not deer season we have a huge garden and we fully believe growing your own food and knowing where your meat comes from is the way it should be. Nothing makes me feel more blessed than being able to harvest an animal that I know we will be able to eat for a long time!

Mitchell Chadwick, Northeast Georgia
Hey everyone, my name is Mitchell Chadwick and I am from Danielsville, GA. Starting at a young age my father introduced me to the outdoors and the fellowship that becomes of it. It’s hard to compare sitting in the woods or listening to whistling wings in the marshes of Coastal GA watching the sunrise. That’s God’s handy work at its finest! Spring turkey season is by far my favorite time of year and you can catch me on the public lands of Georgia chasing a Longbeard.
Tyler Goninen, Wisconsin
My name is Tyler Goninen and I am from Blanchardville, Wisconsin (population 802). From an early age my dad would take me and my brother out into the fresh combined Ag fields and thick hardwoods for the annual Wisconsin gun season. That passion for chasing whitetails has grown into an obsession. Although whitetails are my favorite animal to chase, I can’t seem to keep myself out of the woods. From chasing spring gobblers, to making the trips out west for big game, the outdoors is where I feel most at home. This is truly a family sport and tradition that my son and daughter are already partial to.
Brenton "Buck" Edwards, Middle Georgia
I have a passion for the outdoors. I love to bass fish in the summer and duck hunt in the winter. I am from Jones County in Middle Georgia.

I am a hardcore Waterfowler hunting in the harshest climates and doing whatever it takes to find the birds.

I grew up hunting and fishing with the greatest family and friends dating back to age five where I harvested my first wood duck. I am primarily a turkey hunter in the spring and a waterfowl hunter in the fall and winter. Few things bring me joy in life like the whine of a wood duck, a old tom sounding off at daybreak or the whistle of goldeneye wings echoing through a canyon. I’m lucky to have a loving fiancé and great family who pushes me to pursue my dreams and enjoy the things I love to do most in the great outdoors. Every sunrise is special, so make the most of each and every one!
Andrew Welch, Rabun Gap, Georgia
Terry Middleton, Hartwell, Georgia
I reside in the Reed Creek community of Hart County. You can sum up my living by a Hank Williams Jr. lyric, “I live back in the woods you see. The woman and the kids and the dogs and me.” 2 kids, 2 dogs and a wonderful girlfriend. I was introduced to the great outdoors at the early age of 13 by my grandfather. Took my first deer soon after that and in that instant, I was hooked. 31 years later, I’m still at it! I introduced my girlfriend, Makenzie, to hunting this year and she was able to take her first kill, being two deer with one shot. Needless to say, she is now hooked as well. To me, the hunt is not all about the kill but more of enjoying God’s creations and feeling free. I’m blessed to be able to go out and do what I enjoy. Every year I donate one deer to Hunters for the Hungry to help those in need of a meal. Besides being an avid hunter, during the off-season Makenzie and I spend a lot of time on our Harley Davidson. When we’re not enjoying taking on the mountain rides alone, we get involved in benefit rides to help families in need of finances. Whether it’s in the woods or on two wheels, we enjoy the outdoor living!
Bryson Gilbert, Texas
From a young age my parents had me on the water or in the woods. Following my freshman year at Texas Tech I took a summer job as a deckhand in Seward, Alaska. 4 years later I am graduated and the Captain of a charter boat. Hunting and fishing have been a major part of my life, and the passion is still growing.
Cameron Loving, Oklahoma
I grew up in southwest Oklahoma huntin' and fishin' so early I couldn’t tell you the story of my first fish or the first shed I found, but I’ve accumulated many stories from the lake or the woods along the way. I find myself sitting in a tree or on the lake not only after a big buck or a double digit bass but after the perfect moment when a well thought out plan comes to fruition. I'm getting a head start on a film full of memories I can one day play over and over in my head from an old rocking chair on my porch. When not in the woods I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. Along with the adventures small or big my girlfriend Riley and I stumble upon. Y’all keep your eyes peeled for us boys down in Oklahoma.
