My Name is Mike DeVore, I'm from N.W. Ohio. I'm a member of SCI, P&Y, QDMA, and I would imagine that the NWTF is next on my to do list.
I'm creeping ever so close to the half century mark this upcoming October. I was a late bloomer in the hunting world, although I did a little hunting as a teen, it wasn't until I was in my mid 20's that I became consumed with a passion for the great outdoors, that has only been second to the three F's, (family, faith, and friends). Like a lot of people these days I have been kicked around pretty hard by the economy, plant closings, layoffs, etc... A passion for hunting and the great outdoors has helped keep my sanity.
A few years back I started writing and having a few of my longwinded tales published in various hunting mags. However I've experienced bit more success as a videographer. I've had the good fortune to video everything from bighorn's to bears, from elk to deer and of cource turkeys.
Unlike some, I've harvested more with my canon xlh1a, than I have with my bow or muzzleloader. Anyhow just a little about who I am and what passions consume me.
I truely enjoy talking, reading, writing and videoing anythiing to do with hunting, and after just a few days in the forum, I can see that I am going to enjoy this site. Thanks for having me, and goodluck to all.
