About Me

25yr Old Male, Born in North Bay and Raised in Bracebridge, Ontario, currently residing in Muskoka, Ontario. I am the Owner and Operator of Full Approach Outdoors. I have been involved with everything outdoors (camping, hunting, fishing, hiking, boating) since I was 5 yrs old. I am a pro-staff outdoorsman for Duck Junkies Ontario/Canada.  I grew up to love being outdoors no matter the circumstance through the guidance and teachings of my Father and Grandfather. I have traveled all over Ontario and around the United States of America for the obsession I have for the outdoors. I thrive to be outdoors as much as possible and get no greater high then being able to share/teach my knowledge with other individuals that are interested; I spend a lot of my time in Northern Ontario.

 Fishing

I enjoy catching fish of all sizes and species, always wanting to catch or see new species. I prefer to pursue Lake Trout in the winter months. I target Walleye/Northern Pike, and Smallmouth Bass during the season time lines. My favorite lakes to fish include Lake Joseph, Lake Rosseau, Lady Evelyn Lake, Lake Simcoe (Orillia) and Lake Muskoka/Muskoka River (Bracebridge). I enjoy to use Medium action rods for pitching baits and Heavy rods for down rigging equipped with Braided line – Mono Leaders.

Hunting

I enjoy harvesting many species of animals, however preferring to hunt big game animals until wildfowl opens. I enjoy getting up close and personal to the animals I plan on harvesting. If I am not hunting to harvest then I hunt predators to control the population. I have enjoyed using my bow in recent years as it has opened new avenues into the outdoors for myself. I have found my new passion with using a Muzzle Loader (Black Powder) to harvest game animals. I travel around Ontario to harvest and film. My favorite spot to hunt in Ontario is Muskoka/ Renfrew County. My favorite American Hunting spot is Florida, they have many species to target.

 Outdoor Activities

Aside from Hunting and Fishing I am out target practicing on 3d targets. I enjoy running hounds on the off-season to keep them in shape in trial run pens. I always try to make any vacation outdoors.  I have always preferred a day in the outdoors rather then being inside. When I am not participating in the hunting season I am studying the animals behaviors.

 Memories and Future

I have endless memories hunting and fishing with my father and friends. I have met some amazing individuals along my journey. I have spent numerous hours in trucks to travel to Florida to harvest Wild Boar with great outdoorsmen. I look forward constantly to opportunities to hunt and fish different areas throughout Ontario/America. The future I will be focusing on running more adventures throughout Ontario. Working with family and friends to make this all possible.

I thrive to be outdoors as much as possible and get no greater high then being able to share, teach and learn anything involving fishing/hunting with anyone who is willing to share the passion.

Fishing

I enjoy catching fish of all sizes and species, always wanting to catch or see new species. I prefer to pursue Walleye (Pickerel), and Smallmouth Bass. I am a self taught expert in trolling crank baits (Storm thundersticks, walleye divers, Storm shads) in success of bringing in numbers and good size walleye. If I am not trolling Crankbaits, then I go to my second best technique of Finesse fishing (Berkley Gulp Minnows/Soft Plastics). My favorite lakes to fish include Lake St. John (Rama), Lake Simcoe (Orillia) and Lake Muskoka/Muskoka River (Bracebridge). I enjoy to use Medium-Heavy action rods for trolling equipped with Braided line – Mono Leaders, and medium to light action rods with same line set up for finesse fishing.

Hunting

I enjoy to harvest many species of animals, however prefer to hunt Turkey (spring/fall), as well as waterfowl (ducks, geese etc). I enjoy getting up close and personal to the animals I plan to harvest. If I am not hunting to harvest then I hunt predators to conserve my farm land and the reproduction of other species within the area. I have enjoyed using my bow in recent years as it has opened new avenues into the outdoors for myself. My favorite spots to hunt include returning to my home town of Bracebridge to hunt with friends or to hunt my farm and Copeland forest (simcoe) where there is many opportunities to experience many different animals in a short area.

Outdoor Activities

Aside from Fishing and Hunting I am an avid hiker, mountain biker, and camper. I always prefer a day in the fresh air making memories and new experiences over a day stuck indoors.

Memories and Future

I have endless memories fishing and hunting with family and friends, to learn and observe and then be able to teach and enjoy everything I know with others. I look forward constantly to opportunities to hunt and fish with new people and share stories, memories and good times with those who share our passion.
