The day that I took my first deer was the day that I knew that hunting wasn't a hobby, it was a way of life. From that moment onward I've made it a purpose to devote every ounce of time learning more about hunting game across the country.

My outdoor adventures started back in the hardwood ridges of the northeast back in the early 90's. For the most part I hunted deer and turkey, with the occasional squirrel hunt sprinkled in along the way. It didn't take me long to realize that hunting wasn't just a weekend activity, it was in my blood and something that I couldn't live without. As the seasons rolled by, I began to expand what I hunted and eventually relocated to Texas where doing something hunting related is part of my daily routine. This site is home to my adventures, links to my favorite wild game recipes and thoughts on today's pressing topics within the hunting community.

Knives are a personal thing, there's just no doubt about that. Before half of us were given our first shotgun, we had a pocket knife given to us and carried it everywhere we went. As the years go by, half of them are given out as gifts and the other half are usually kept sharp to remind us of the old times. I for one, own too many knives(is there really such a thing?) and the majority of them are the same blade style. Great for generic cutting, but awful for skinning and technical work. If you're a big game hunter, there's honestly nothing worse than muscling your way through an animal with the wrong knife whether on a mountainside or back at camp. Fortunately, there are good people out there dedicating hours of research and development to overcome these hurdles. The team at Raptor Razor is doing exactly that and then some.
