I've been hunting, raising and training dogs for over 30 years and was taught at a very young age that a dog could be a very important tool to have around. I've been married to my wife Cindy for almost 15 years and we have a daughter named Kinzie and a son named Tanner. My wife is an outdoor enthusiest that enjoys hunting deer, turkey, bear, coon and squirrel. Together we raise and train Treeing Walker Coonhounds as well as Fiests and Border Collie Cowdogs. The sport of coonhunting has been very good to me and I've met a lot of very nice people from being involved in it. I worked almost 7 years with S&S Wholesale and learned a whole lot about buisiness and customer service from the company founder Steve Cox. I've used Marshall equipment for a good many years and believe it to be the best that you can buy and wouldn't be working with them if I didn't think so. I look forward to meeting everyone at the many hunts we attend throughout the year."
