English Springer Spaniel
Colorado to North Dakota
Born and raised in Colorado, Adam is a passionate hunter whose youth was shaped through competitive hockey. Once those days were over, he was reunited with his enjoyment of being outdoors and sharing a field with Man's Best Friend. He now takes every opportunity to get outside and hunt – no matter if its big game, turkey, or upland hunting – but it's always better with Kona at this side.

My father. Without him I never would have been exposed to hunting. Outside of hunting he taught me strong work ethic and business sense. Tough but fair, I learned to work hard, be entrepreneurial and value relationships with friends.
As a kid I would walk fields with my dad. It was then that I learned about the special relationship of man and his dog. We grew up with Springer Spaniels – I love the breed's ability to be a great family dog and also a phenomenal hunting dog.
Munsterlander. I like uncommon dog breeds and I also think they are beautiful dogs.
One of my favorites was when we came across a pheasant with a broken wing who could still run. Kona took off after the bird, chasing it through a field of yucca plants. It zigzagged every way possible and I lost sight of both Kona and the bird over the hill. As I crested the hill Kona welcome me, with the live bird in his mouth.
I love chasing pheasants because of their abundance in North America. Allows for an individual to be nomadic and wander through states. Every area has a different feel to it that shapes the experience and provides a fulfilling experience.
