Clint began hunting at age 7 when his father took him on a squirrel hunt in Shimek State Forest. That first hunt and first squirrel with his grandfathers open sight .22 resulted in him taking hook, line and sinker. While subsequent hunts with his father have been few, he still gives his dad all the credit in the world for planting that seed. Clint has enjoyed traveling the Midwest on various hunts for big game and small game in Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, Wyoming and Missouri.
He has a true passion for teaching others and encouraging newcomers the sport of hunting. Clint has the ability to connect with hunters of any age and can carry on a conversation effortlessly. He and his wife Tami have two young sons and a daughter that all are active youth hunters. Clint owned and operated State-Line Whitetails and Turkeys until December of 2008. The decision to end his guided hunt service was made so he could dedicate more time to his children’s hunting ambitions. He began filming his own hunts in 2001 and has enjoyed capturing his children’s hunts on video since 2008. Having been shooting archery for over 25 years, he brings a wealth of knowledge and experiences to Campfire Stories that include Bowhunter of the Year award and several ProStaff positions with industry leaders. He has 24 whitetail that score over 140” and an abundance of long beards that have topped 25 pounds. You will often hear Clint say, “Putting in the time and effort for scouting and hunting are the keys to consistent success. Anyone can get a rut crazed buck or the perfect wind on occasion. Do it every year, and you are a great hunter.”
