His father's passion for hunting pheasants and quail behind their brittany spaniel fueled Scott’s desire to be a hunter. When a childhood friend of his let Scott shoot his Bear whitetail compound bow, he was hooked immediately! His father took him to get his first bow, a Jennings Forked Lightening, later that summer. He grew up in Southern Michigan, so he had deer, and now he had a bow. Only problem was his Dad wasn't really a deer hunter; so Scott and a good friend decided to enroll in the school of hard knocks. By the time he hit 15 that fall, he had arrowed his first deer, a yearling doe. He will never forget how that made him feel, and seeks out that feeling each and every fall.
