Growing up in Northwestern Wisconsin, I quickly learned my calling to the outdoors
through the guidance of my father. He mentored me in all areas from fishing to hunting.
A strong advocate of timber management, he encouraged and educated me to become
a good steward of the valuable natural resource. I regularly pursue a range of game,
from calling coyotes to hunting turkey. Some of the big game I have pursued includes
black bear, moose, and woodland caribou. Of all the animals I have hunted, the elusive
white tail deer remains my favorite.
My dad, Steve Sr., introduced me to deer hunting at an early age, and despite getting
frostbit feet on my first hunt, I’ve been hooked ever since. I’ve been lucky enough
to hunt alongside three generations of family: my grandfather Cliff, my dad, and
now my son & daughter, Jack & Elli. As the kids approach legal hunting age, developing
a sound deer management program on my family’s hunting land has become a huge priority.
I was introduced to hunting by my Dad at a very young age. I quickly fell in love
with hunting and made it a huge part of my life. I also had a mentor take me under
his wing as show me the ropes. And now I like to think I am on top of my game in
the whitetail woods. With last year being my best so far by tracking a specific
buck and being able to tag him. Hunting really is a 365 days a year "job" for me
now. From mineral sites to food plots, tracking deer year round with trail cameras
and adjusting stand set ups in the middle of June, I really am a whitetail junkie.
I also love to hunt turkeys and pheasants. I can even be seen catching some fish
in my spare time. But my true passion is whitetails with archery gear. It's just
something about the close encounters and the adrenalin rush that keeps me coming
back for more.
I have been bow hunting for 11 years and I grew up surrounded by hunting and it
has been a family tradition for a very long time. I first began shooting archery
when my father would shoot 3D tournaments, and the rest is history. My father owns
a few farms in South Western Wisconsin where we have been implementing strict quality
deer management. My greatest passion is bow hunting for Whitetails. We have stepped
up our level of bow hunting by adding a camera to document our never ending 365
days, 24/7 passion for whitetails. During the off season you can find me putting
on miles while shed hunting, preparing food plots, and scouting. I attend college
at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater as an Operations Management Major. I am
fortunate to have a great family that not only supports my whitetail addiction but
is a part of it as well!
David Underwood Sr.
I have two farms in South West Wisconsin. I have been very passionate to the sport
of deer and turkey hunting for thirty plus years. I am a father of three sons and
have been happily married to my wife, Theresa, for twenty-six years. My biggest
passion is hunting big mature whitetails primarily with archery equipment. We spend
a lot of our time reviewing trail cam pictures and studying the placement of “kill
stands” and food plots. We spend a great deal of time and resources on our management
of the deer herd on and around our farms. We recently, in the past two years, have
started to film some of our hunts. My biggest enjoyment is taking first time hunters
(youth or adult) on their first successful hunts for deer or turkey! “The season
never ends! It just leads to the next phase!”
I was born and raised in St. Cloud MN, into a family that enjoyed camping and canoeing,
but never hunting. I was 19 when I had the chance to go deer hunting for the first
time with my close friend and his family. So, opening morning I went out to some
nearby public land, and that year I got a bit lucky and shot a Doe while she was
on the run. I spent 4 seasons on that public land and thought it was pretty good,
until I had the chance to hunt some private land, and I have not been back to public
land since. I took a few years off from hunting, until I moved and meet a new neighbor,
Tom Lester. Tom helped to rekindle my love of hunting whitetails, and I have been
hunting with him for the past 5 years now on a private lease in south eastern MN.
Now we do more than go out for one week a year. Hunting has become a year round
event, and I enjoy it more now than I ever have in the past.
Jimmy was born in Eau Claire, Wisconsin and currently works at a manufacturing company
in the municipal industry. He loves archery and meeting new people every day. He
always likes hearing about other peoples' success in the woods and there great stories.
"Hunting and the Outdoors is about all I do. Hunting mature whitetails has become
more than just a hobby and it's one of the hardest things I've ever done." Besides
hunting, he enjoys fishing, family, and hanging out with friends.
Aaron Nordby grew up in Whitehall, WI. The outdoors has always
been a passion of his. He has been bow hunting since he was 14 years old. Over the
last 10 years his addiction for bow hunting has turned to hunting bigger bucks. His
seasons are differant than most people's. His are hunting season, shed hunting season, turkey
season, food plot season, scouting season... his passion runs year round.
I am a firm believer that shooting the most mature whitetail in an area is the most
challenging hunting endeavor there is. I learned this early, coming close, but not
sealing the deal, so many times. These were challenges that every hunter faces.
Some quit, but this only fueled the fire more for me. I had my first success at
age 15, shooting what I believed was a trophy deer at the property I hunt. From
that moment on I knew what I enjoyed in life and the one thing that I would never
be willing to give up. Bow hunting mature whitetails! I feel extremely fortunate
to be able to hunt in the driftless area of the Midwest and having the opportunities
every year to see bigger and bigger bucks as the successes of quality deer management
have kept paying off. I have grown up spending as much time as possible in the outdoors
and especially in the bluffs of Southwest Wisconsin.
Born and raised in Eau Calire, I have been hunting since I was 12 years old (33
years). My parents introduced to me the outdoors at a very early age and I haven't
looked back since. My main passion is chasing whitetails with archery equipment
in the fall and turkeys in the spring. Most of my turkey hunting happens in Buffalo
County, WI and my whitetail hunting in Eau Claire and Clark Counties. I'm enjoying
watching both my kids following me into the outdoors.
I have been bow hunting for over 33 years. I love God's Great Outdoors and feel
very blessed to be able to spend that time with family and friends. Especially my
brother, Mike, who I have been hunting with for all those 30+ years. I also have
enjoyed my time with my daughter, Danielle, who shares the same passions to the
outdoors and archery as I do. And I look forward to getting my youngest daughter,
Ashleigh, involved in the sport of hunting as well. I enjoy getting youth started
in the sport of hunting. To see the excitement on their faces when they have harvested
their first deer or turkey is an incredible feeling. I would have to say though,
my real passions are chasing spring gobblers and mature whitetails in the fall with
archery equipment. I have to thank my wife for allowing me to pursue my passion
(addiction) of hunting.
I grew up in Wisconsin my whole life. I currently live in
the outskirts of Richfield, Wisconsin. I am currently a Union Millwright at P.W.
Walsh & Company. I also am a guide/outfitter for Wicked Whitetail Outdoors in Southwest
Iowa. My hobbies are hunting, bowfishing, four-wheeling, and Brewer games. Growing
up on a farm in a small town made me a country boy at heart. My dad brought me into
hunting at a very early age. He took me everywhere with him. From putting up tree
stands, scouting for deer, or driving around in the back roads of Iowa, I knew this
style of living was for me.
I am a small town, country boy being born and raised in Slinger, WI. Growing up
fishing, hunting, and playing around on my 4-wheeler, I gained a love for the outdoors.
I am currently a Union Millwright for P.W. Walsh & Co. and am a guide/outfitter
for Wicked Whitetail Outdoors. My father was/is the biggest influence on my hunting
career. He taught me how to hunt smart and safe from the day I could walk. He always
told me it isn’t about the score or the age of the animal you have taken, it is
the memories in the hunt and the people that you are with that make the hunt a true
I grew up in Crivitz, WI but recently moved to big buck country, New Market, IA.
I am a over-the-road truck driver and guide/outfitter with Wicked Whitetail Outdoors.
Growing up around hunting my entire life, made me realize immediately that this
would be my hobby. I have been blessed with an opportunity to hunt great land with
great family and friends as well. At a very young age I was introduced to hunting
and shown the different techniques and strategies that go along with it.
I grew up in Pennsylvania and developed a love for hunting and the outdoors at a
young age. My Dad taught me how to be a successful hunter, but more importantly
a man of God. My passion for archery and hunting has increased through the years.
I truly love being in the woods and the challenge of trying to take trophy whitetails.
I also enjoy shooting 3D and represent a few well known companies. I currently reside
in Indiana with my beautiful wife and daughter. I am thankful for the support that
I get from my family to pursue my love of hunting. I am excited about being on the
Monster Raxx Pro Staff and look forward to what is to come.
My Dad got me interested in whitetails at a young ae. I started off scouting, shed
hunting, and helping with mineral sites. Last year at 10 years old I shot my first
deer. This year I hope to shoot my first turkey, and shoot a buck with my bow on
film. I also like to play Football, Basketball, and Baseball. During the summer
I like to go the lake and fish.
I was born, and raised in the small town of Cannon Falls, MN, and am extremely fortunate
to have been brought up by a family who has a tremendous amount of respect, and
passion for the outdoors. I started hunting at the age of 12 taking my first big
game animal a P&Y black bear, that same year I also harvested a nice turkey, and
whitetail deer. Since then I haven't looked back. Throughout the years I have harvested
a number of animals, but quickly realized that whitetails are my true passion. I
now find my self striving to better their habitat through various types of land
management, and food plots. My dad and I are constantly searching for better ways
to keep our deer herd non pressured, and healthy. I'm very excited to be apart of
the Monster Raxx team, and cant wait for the years to come.
I wasn't born with a bow in my hand, I blame my brother Jim for what I've become"...
I honestly live for bowhunting Whitetails capable of making me do a double take.
I crave the never ending excitement that a mature buck brings to the table. I've
been chasing Whitetails for 33 years. The last 15 years I've hunted strictly with
a bow, and for the last 10 of those years I've been picking one specific deer to
haunt until I either succeed or simply run out of time. My bow season has no expiration
date because it's one of those truly unique pastime's which actually has several
other nessesary seasons in; and of itself. Closing day after I hang the bow is when
my real season restarts. Since my hunting is a 365 day long event I've been fortunate
enough to live for 23 yrs right in amongst the deer here in Minnesota. I'm recently
a published Outdoor writer who has the same passion for photography and shooting
video of deer in their natural settings as I do looking at a Pope & Young buck at
full draw while thinking: "Checkmate."
Bowhunting is my passion in life. Being raised in a family that spends countless
hours in the outdoors, it was only natural for me to follow suit. My obsession with
the outdoors has evolved into a 365 day a year pursuit. It begins in the spring
with shed hunting, and continues through the fall chasing whitetails across the
Midwest. I am constantly driven to new levels in my hunting career, working on ways
to put myself above the rest through hard work and dedication.
Born and raised in Central Ohio I grew up hunting some of the best land in the country.
Im a firefighter by trade which allows me the time to pursue my main passion which
is chaising mature whitetails. I started chasing whitetails when I was 11 years
old and took my first P&Y when I was 18. After taking my first P&Y a deadly passion
set in to seek out the most mature whitetail on my properties and spend that season
chasing those particular animals. I have since taken numberous P&Y animals and hunt
at least 3 different states every year. Ive dedicated my passion for whitetails
to mainly bow hunting and on top of that I self film which is by far one of the
hardest things to accomplish. Every year I set a goal to build a relationship with
a animal and then harvest him on film. Accomplishing these goals is very tough but
using Monster Raxx minerals makes this VERY easy!!!
I was born in south central Kansas and feel very fortunate to be able to live and
pursue trophy whitetails on my family farm. Putting a big buck on the ground requires
countless hours of work, well before the season begins, and I enjoy every minute
of it. Stand sets, trail cameras, mineral sites, food plots and scouting make for
a busy off season and productive fall hunting. When time permits I enjoy predator,
turkey and waterfowl hunting, as well as fishing for largemouth bass and flathead
cats. When the antlers drop you can bet I'm on the trail for sheds. One of my favorite
times of the year is when the bucks start growing their headgear and I'm able to
watch them weekly with the trail cameras as they put on the inches. Any day spent
outdoors is good but the days spent outdoors with a bow in my hand are a blessing.
Being from southeast Kansas, hunting big whitetails is in my blood. Around my house
the season never ends. As soon as I pull the trigger on my release I'm thinking
about how I can improve my chances next year of harvesting a mature deer. Between
mineral site, shed hunting, and preseason scouting I put my time in every year to
improve myself as a hunter, a conservationist, and an all round outdoorsman.
I was born in Northeast Iowa into a family that has strong values in hunting. I
am lucky to have family that enjoys the outdoors and the adventures that each outing
brings. I have been hunting for over 24 years and each season is better than the
last. Bowhunting is my preferred form of relaxation and frustration, but I will
use whatever method need to have a great time in the deer woods. Recently I have
been more invoved with managing my uncles farm in Iowa, this sense of accomplishment
is something I cherrish greatly. I enjoy catalogging the trail cam photos and tracking
the progress of the herd. With the help of my wife we are raising two great boys
that I hope will follow in my footsteps of managing and enjoying hunting for many
years to come. I can't wait to film their first hunts!
