Don is a freeland outdoor writer living in the mountains of North Carolina. A lifelong hunter and wingshooter, he started out hunting dove and quail in his native state of Alabama. His travels in the U.S. Army gave him the opportunity to hunt throughout the U.S., Germany and pheasant in Korea. His passion for upland hunting has associated him with English Setters and along with his home territory he has followed them throughout the northeast and Midwest chasing ruffed grouse and woodcock. Don has 25 years of sporting clays shooting experience and is a NSCA Level I instructor at Biltmore Sporting Clays Club in Asheville, NC.
