From an early age Derek was raised to be a different breed of hunter. It wasn’t all about the kill. His dad instilled in him that being outdoors is an experience. Being outdoors is about making memories and relationships with others. He would take these same values and instill them into his little brother. As he matured Derek took this one step further, by becoming a professional outfitter in New Mexico, and took it as a profession to take others hunting and into the outdoors to make their own memories.
