Nick grew up in St. Louis, and currently resides in the great town of Washington, Missouri. His obsession for the outdoors began at an early age with his father, whether chasing squirrels with a pellet gun, hunting deer in the woods, or standing elbow to elbow on opening day of trout season. Nick always had a rod and reel in his hand until after high school. Then, his great friend, Troy, introduced him to waterfowl hunting. One hunt was all Nick needed, and he was hooked! He had the fever, couldn’t learn enough, and wanted to soak it all up like a sponge. He is still, and will always be learning about this great sport. Researching, watching and gaining knowledge on waterfowl and their habitats has put him where he is at today. He’s fortunate that he can chase ducks and geese almost all winter long. You can find Nick all over Missouri, at conservation grounds, lakes, rivers and even a little bit in Illinois, but where his heart really lies is in corn fields along rivers chasing field mallards and honkers. That’s what he eats, sleeps and works for all winter long!
