is a book about growing up in rural America. It’s a book about using guns responsibly, about hunting ethics and battling against hunter stereotypes, about conservation and hunting philosophy. It’s about how to think about hunting. The target audience is hunters, but non-hunters will see that hunters aren’t the bloodthirsty exterminators some people think they are. Everyone will gain a better understanding of what hunters really are, why hunters love hunting, and the role hunters must play if wildlife is to thrive in the future.
Growing Up With Guns is about the hunter’s role as predator and conservationist, plus a few personal recollections told with humor, and thoughtful opinions about hunting in today’s world. 50 chapters in four sections cover:
>> the days when people didn’t automatically assume guns were for killing people
>> the predator who cares about his prey species and his impact on species that aren’t his prey
>> the hunter as a non-consumptive user of wildlife, and why hunting is life-giving
>> tips and strategies that will make you a better hunter.

The antler in Steve's logo represents the first shed he ever found -- the half-rack of an 8-point. His fascination with antlers led him to keep it all these years. It's not the record book antler you might expect to see in a logo -- instead it's what any "everyday hunter" would be happy to bring home. The turkey feather is from the tailfan of one of the many spring gobblers that Steve has given a free ride in his Ford Ranger.
Spend some time here -- you'll find lots of information (including some opinions you may or may not share) -- and a lot to enjoy. Thanks for stopping by.
