Over the years I have been asked to speak to a number of sporting organizations. I really enjoy these engagements because I get to mingle with the people I enjoy the most… outdoor people! My experience over the years includes a number of Ducks Unlimited groups, some Pheasant Forever get-togethers and various sporting groups and organizations from Blue Earth, Minnesota to Milaca, Minnesota.

Public speaking is a very enjoyable thing for me as I teach people and anglers about passion and why passion has been my driving force for decades. It’s not about chasing the dollar bill but rather following your interests, passion and love of life. I have had the opportunity to share my passion for the outdoors with high schools, Boy Scout groups, state legislators, sporting groups and sport shows all over the Midwest. I am known for “telling like it is”…not sugarcoating and spewing nonsense.

My speaking fee is negotiable and on a case-by-case basis. My speaking fee is what you can afford depending on the organization. Oftentimes I have a collection of my fishing tackle, rods and reels and even my boat to help illustrate my passion in the outdoors. If you have a company event or want some motivation and joy in your school or church, call me anytime to discuss: 218-367-6902
