Strategic Bow Hunting for The Everyday Bow Hunter

I’m a retired U.S. Army Green Beret who is taking my Special Operations background and turning it into a new, more mobile way to hunt deer. I call strategic bow hunting. But, like you, I am just an everyday bow hunter who is learning how to be a better deer hunter with every hunt.

Join me on this journey and let’s all get better together.
