Since I was a little boy id go hunting with my dad. Whether that was bow hunting the early season or walking the wet logging roads late in the year, I was always one step behind my dad. I have had a passion for hunting ever since I can remember. It is something that has been a way for me to forget about everything else and just enjoy my hunt. I harvested my first animal at 10 years old with my dad by my side. It was a 3×2 Mule Buck that I shot at 260 yards with a .243. I won’t soon forget any of my hunting memories, especially my biggest buck to date. A blacktail I harvested at the age of 17. It ended up being the #2 youth blacktail in the state scoring in at 171 5/8”. Its the memories made hunting that will always be with me.

November 16th, 2013 I started up a hunting page, aspiring to be known in this industry. I started up PKD Out. A brand showing full circle of hunting. We started at 0 followers. Growing rapidly but still not as fast as I’d like. We hit 1,000 followers before the year was over. And in January of 2017, we were at 9,000 followers with 8 sponsors. I know how to hunt but it was tough for me to figure out how to get constant followers. Until Wes and I put our heads together… As of June, I am sitting at 17.4k. We figured it out, and boy am I thankful for it. It has taken my brand to the next level. I’m am the type to always be grateful for what I have but never satisfied and always hungry. I constantly remind myself that Chasing my dreams is whats going to get me where I want to be in life and I remind myself daily of this especially during those late nights and early mornings.

When I saw Wes taking off with this idea to help people “get sponsored” I couldn’t help but jump on board. I want to help people with the knowledge I have gained over the past 4 years of growing a brand from scratch. It isn’t easy, and sometimes you feel like giving up, but I can promise you, nothing great ever comes easy, don’t settle, go get it and let us help!
