Macka is a hardcore bowhunter. And “hardcore” in Australia means something totally different than it does stateside. For every species of animal we have here, there’s a corresponding animal Down Under that can KILL YOU. But Macka gets ‘em first.

Since I was a child, I always had to be outside. I have always had a passion for wildlife and the outdoors. After obtaining my BS in Wildlife Science, I worked for various state fish and wildlife agencies. After a few years, I decided that I needed to spend more time in the woods hunting in order to keep my sanity. Over the past few years I have guided, hunted, and trapped in Pennsylvania, New York, Vermont, Maine, Texas, and Montana. This year I will be guiding in Idaho.
