Tom likes anything outdoor wise and fishes/hunts from Alaska to Florida. He loves elk and bear hunting but says it’s hard to beat a good Idaho backcountry flyfishing trip. He rodeoed at Texas A&M Univ. but dropped out to go pro as a bareback rider. In due time he went back to school and got a real job and ended up marrying the prettiest girl in the world.

Tom is an outdoor writer for Bass Pro Shop, has outdoor columns in newspapers in Alaska, Oregon, Idaho, Utah, Nevada, Colorado, and Louisiana, writes for the Idaho Deer Alliance Magazine, Mule Deer Foundation Magazine, Western Shooting Journal, some for Havalon Knives,,, NBS Magazine, Western Whitetail Hunter, freelances for various magazines and newspapers  and has e-articles on Amazon Kindle.  He also conducts about 60 seminars annually at various sports shows and outdoor stores.

Tom enjoys hunting ground squirrels in Idaho with his Marauder rifle and bringing his Woods Walker pistol along on backcountry flyfishing trips for grouse.
