It all started for Jim when he was all of five years old and his father took him hunting with a Red Ryder BB gun. As he grew so did his passion for the outdoors, so if he wasn't hunting you would find him tagging along with his Grandfather to a favorite fishing hole. As the years progressed he would share that same passion with his children. Jim's idea of a romantic date was taking his wife, on their wedding anniversary, to a trophy ranch where she would go sit with him in the hunting blind. It didn't seem to matter where his career took him he always seemed to be drawn to where he was the most comfortable, outdoors. His adventures have taken him to fishing Bass tournaments, harvesting 19 of the 29 North American Big Game animals and teaching others how to read a stream when fly fishing. When he is not visiting Alaska, just one more time, you will find him sharing his passion with others on the radio .... hoping they will be drawn into the world that he dearly loves.
Trav is a small town kid driven by hunting, fishing, rock/honky-tonk music, a good cold beer and his wife and kids. Being raised in a rural area surrounded by wildlife and lacking the luxurious amenities of big city life might be challenging to some; however, to Trav, it was an utter blessing. From his inception on, Trav has spent his life outdoors, he was taught at a very young age to hunt and fish and over the years these skills have molded him into a self-sufficient outdoorsman that strives to live a sustainable and God fearing lifestyle. When Trav isn’t behind the mic he’s either in the woods or on the water sharing his passion and love for the outdoors with his family and friends. So, don't bother searching for him on Facebook or Twitter and you couldn’t pay him to own an iPhone, but let me reassure you of this: If there’s hunting and fishing, cold beer on tap and shaving isn’t required, he’s certainly not too far. What you see is what you get with Trav and to sum him up is simple, he doesn’t ask for a lot and he’ll never need much, a rifle, a bow, the love of his good looking wife and to be all that his children will ever need!
