I would like to share my story as to how I came to start the UWC North American Waterfowl Grand Slam. As with most serious waterfowl hunters, my hunting career started well before I could carry a gun. I followed my Father around the marsh in western Minnesota on what at the time was one of the best waterfowl hunting reservoirs in the entire state, if not the Midwest- Marsh Lake. Thus the waterfowl hunting tradition was installed from an early age.
After graduating from college with a degree in Wildlife Management I picked up a short reed goose call and a Chesapeake Bay Retriever Pup and got a job as a duck hunting guide at a duck club. I guided waterfowl hunters for the next 10 years before launching another outdoor company called HuntTheNorth.com.
In 2014 my passion for waterfowl hunting drove me to Officially launch the Ultimate Waterfowlers Challenge and taking the challenge myself of harvesting all 41 species of huntable waterfowl in North America It has been a most enjoyable experience meeting many die hard waterfowl hunters from across the country and helping them in their quest for completing the North American Waterfowl Grand Slam.
The UWC Adventures Program was born out of an attempt to not only complete the challenge myself, but to also offer other hunters who are I quest of completing the “Grand Slam” a reputable and reliable option to harvest those not so easy to get birds.
One of my best memories from taking the UWC Challenge myself thus far came this last January while standing in a 23 ft boat in the middle of the Bering Sea on St. Paul Island, Ak holding my trophy King Eider in hand. While most likely completing the Grand Slam this coming season, I now look forward to making these memories all over again with my two boys as they get old enough to hunt. I hope to help instill that drive in many more young waterfowlers that come down the path as well for generations to come!
I feel so Thankful and Blessed every day by the Lord, to have the ability to found this wonderful organization with my incredible partner Brandon Crowley and to have the ability to wake up every day and work in the industry that I truly love! I can’t wait to meet many of our UWC members at our first annual UWC Banquet in June 0f 2018.
