Since my father was a taxidermist, I've always been fascinated by wild animals. Not only do I enjoy hunting and observing North American wildlife, I've also been interested in animals all around the world. In elementary school, my free reading books were often about animals or even field guides for various species. I still love animals and appreciate now more than ever the incredible diversity and ingenuity of their creator.
