Steve credits his love of the outdoors to his Dad who took the time to introduce him to what has become a life-long obsession. With a passion for all things “bowhunting”, Steve specializes in chasing whitetails in some of the most demanding terrain on earth….the rugged mountains of the east. Growing up in Southern West Virginia, he learned the hard way what it takes to consistently tag elusive bucks under such grueling conditions.
Today, Steve shares his knowledge of “mountain” whitetail bowhunting through the pages of major outdoor magazines such as Bow and Arrow Hunting, Bowhunting World, and Deer and Deer Hunting. His insightful and helpful tips can also be found at Bowhunting.com where he is a regular contributor as well as a co-editor. In addition, he serves as a Pro-Staff member for Hunters in Christ Kingdom.
When he is not writing or bowhunting, Steve can be found spending time in the outdoors with his wife and three children. He also enjoys fishing, weight training, and a variety of outdoor activities.
His advice for any newcomers to the sport is to simply have fun and enjoy God’s gift that is the great outdoors. And, don’t get too caught up in the “trophy” aspect of the hunt either. Animal’s taken and number of points won’t really matter when all is said and done. However, what will matter is your time spent with loved ones, memories made in the field, and ultimately….your relationship with God.
