Dustin has grown up hunting in central Illinois in the middle of the Mississippi flyway. As a young boy, he wanted to learn as much as he could about the outdoors and hunting so he read every magazine, watched every tv show and movie he could. Dustin started deer hunting at the age of 10 with his Dad and uncles. Then at the age of 12, he got the opportunity to go waterfowl hunting and shot his first duck. Since then Dustin has anxiously awaited for each waterfowl season to roll around. Once he was old enough to drive, he started guiding at a couple clubs in Missouri and would travel and hunt in between going to school and work. When Dustin graduated high school he followed in the family construction business and was lucky enough to take off and hunt when he wanted. Dustin is always looking forward to spending every chance he can in the field or the blind. Dustin also enjoys taking every opportunity he can to take a kid hunting or fishing so they can also experience the outdoors. When Dustin is not hunting or fishing he enjoys spending time with his wife Faith, daughter Avery, and dogs Magnum and Drake.
