I am 48 years old and have been duck hunting for a bit over twenty years. Currently own two duck boats and trailer that are displayed on the owners page.

Hunt mostly in Waseca County on and near the family farm. Have 2 wildlife management areas and 2 lakes that adjoin the farm. Own 6-7 dozen duck decoys with a half dozen goose floaters. Have a goose hunting field rig that includes 3 dozen full bodies, 4 dozen shells, and 6 dozen wind socks.

Have spent time collecting over a hundred books on the sport and carving decoys. Have over a dozen duck and goose hunting videos. I carve my own decorative decoys
and also carve shorebird decoys that I give away. Have a collection of about 400 slides and 200 pictures that I have taken during the spring mostly.

Own complete collections of the following magazines:

Minnesota Waterfowler
Waterfowl Carving
Waterfowler's World

Have helped to start three chapters of the Minnesota Waterfowl Association of which I am a Life member. Am a Life member of the NRA and am also a member of Delta Waterfowl and DU. I am also a volunteer state reporter for
