I Love the Outdoors!

With a lifetime of holding a fishing rod and wielding a rifle, I’ve become involved in numerous forms of communicating those experiences—writing, editing, publishing, photography, and videotaping. This website has been launched to help share those outdoor experiences and knowledge.

The column on the right shows projects I am currently involved in. These include magazines I edit and layout, websites I publish, books I’ve authored, and DVDs I helped publish. It is my desire to help as many as possible to enjoy the outdoor experience. Please click onto the projects to learn more about them.

Thank all of you for visiting this site. I trust it’ll help you to gain knowledge and enjoyment from fishing, hunting and trapping.


Beaver Pond Publications is the official website for Beaver Pond Publications, the imprint for my books and DVDs. Watch this website for new products and use it to order books and DVDs.



I am in the process of formatting and adding e-books to our hardcopy book offerings. These will be available in a FULL VERSION and a TEXT ONLY version. The TEXT ONLY version is self-explanatory. The FULL VERSION will be an identical layout to the hardcopy book – including all photos, captions, and so on.

Looking Ahead

My current on-going projects include the American Trapper and The Wisconsin Trapper. I have just published “Perfect Sets—Bedding, Blending and Weatherproofing.” Beyond this, I have other projects at various stages of production. These are both books and DVDs, including joint projects with Ralph Scherder.  I will continue to work on various outdoor projects, by myself and with partners, to advance the enjoyment and skill of those who take advantage of them. If I’ve learned anything through the years, it is that  the best way to get ahead is to make every day your masterpiece.
