I was born and raised in north central MO where I started waterfowl hunting with my dad at the age of 6. Grew up hunting swan lake and fountain grove as well as several private hunting spots. I enjoy hunting all types of game from rabbits to deer I started contest calling in 2008 my first contest I took 3rd with a strait meat honker and still use it on the stage. Foiles Migrators is hands down the best waterfowl company now and forever.
