Eric grew up hunting, fishing, trapping and camping with his father in Kansas. His father instilled in him safety as well as the love for the outdoors. As an adult, he continued to hunt and fish but was always wanting more of a challenge.
In 1999 he discovered big bore airguns. The thought of using something so different to hunt with intrigued him. So the quest began for more knowledge and then to bring airgun hunting mainstream. Since then, Eric has been known for being the pioneer of bigbore airgun hunting. With such accomplishments as working with manufacturers for different calibers and power levels, being one of the first to hunt big game in Africa with an airgun, producing many airgun hunting DVDs, and having a successful YouTube channel, Eric has been a trailblazer and pioneer in the outdoor industry.
