I started shooting a bow around the age of five, and have been bowhunting since I was 13 years old.  I first joined the Lone Star Bowhunters Association in my late teen years.   Have served on the Executive Council as Region 77 Rep. and then as Vice President.  Now I server as the Texas Bowhunting and Bowfishing Records Chairman for the Lone Star Bowhunters Association since 2011.

Hunt Committee

The main purpose of the Hunt Committee will be to promote bow hunting for and among LSBA members by organizing/overseeing Fellowship hunts, Youth hunts, and Special hunts (to include bow fishing).  The Hunt Committee Chairperson has the ultimate organizational responsibility of the hunts, but each hunt can be headed by any member of the Hunt Committee.

I started out as an October bowhunter and would switch to rifle in November.  Sometime in the early 80s I switched to bowhunting only. I joined LSBA around 1991.  In 1996 I came on the EC as treasurer, since then I’ve been the Region Rep for 76 and also 78.  I was LSBA President in 2000, 2001, and 2004.  In 2003 I started the Hunt Committee and we started doing Fellowship hunts ever since.  I’ve been on the EC for most of the last 21 years and in that time I’ve seen a lot of good people work hard to preserve and promote bowhunting in Texas.  LSBA is an organization we can all be proud of.  Having said that, someone reading this needs to take my place,  I’m coming off of the EC next year so I can go hunting and fishing full time.  See you in the woods.


The Membership Chairperson is responsible for maintaining the membership data base in a complete current status at all times, sending out renewal notices in a timely manner, and generating reports as requested by the Executive Council.

First and foremost, I serve the Lord, Jesus Christ.  After that I am a husband, a father, and a grandfather.  I retired from the Austin Police Department in 2015 after just over 24 years.  Prior to that I served just under 7 years in the U.S. Army.

I began shooting a bow at a young age, hunting rabbits and such, then went over 20 years without shooting.  I got back into it in the mid 90’s and have hunted primarily with the bow and arrow ever since.  I’ve hunted with crossbow, compound bow, and traditional recurves and longbows.  I am passionate about bow hunting and try to pass that on to everyone I meet.

I have been a member of the LSBA since 2000.  I took a position of Regional Rep’ when I retired in 2015 and now hold the office of president and membership co-chair with my wife Camey.  I am also a Life Member of TBOT, and a Life Member of the North American Hunting Club.

My passion for archery started when I was 10 years old and making stick bows out of kite string. My dad bought me my first recurve a few months later and my first compound when I was in 7th grade. Since then, I’ve been obsessed with this sport. I joined LSBA in 2014 and served a short time as magazine editor and now I’m honored to serve as VP of our great organization. I enjoy working with each one of our district reps and being a part of something that makes a difference.
