NEOWA Sportsman of the Year

I had the distinct honor of being named the 2018 Sportsman of the Year from the New England Outdoor Writer Association at their annual meeting.

Staci and I went down to southern Mass. to attend the annual meeting and network with fellow outdoor writers.  It was great to put faces to the list of familiar names there and I was voted in as one of their newest board members.

It was a long but fun day of talking with fellow writers and hearing their stories of the outdoors all across New England.
