City of Residence: Norton Shores

Employment: Attorney, Gielow Groom Terpstra & McEvoy

Member Since: 2010

Board Positions(s): I joined the Board in 2012, and have served as Chapter Secretary and President.  I have also served on several SCI committees, including Bylaws and Awards.

Introduced: My dad enjoyed whitetail hunting and took me to sit with him when I was 8 or 9.  My first hunt was squirrel hunting with my dad at our cabin in White Cloud.

Continent(s) Hunted: North America, Europe, and Africa

Favorite Trophy: Kudu

Memorable Hunt: Africa because I'd dreamed of hunting there, and it was everything that I had imagined, and more.  Plus, it was the first time that my wife had ever got out into the woods/bush.  While she didn't hunt, she was an observer and has as many memories as I do.

Favorite Species to Hunt: Plains game (although I'd love to hunt the Big 5 at some point)

Want to Hunt: Lion

Advice: Take time to introduce your non-hunting friends to hunting.  I have several friends that never hunted until I introduced them to it.  Now, they are as hooked as I am.
