Clay started hunting waterfowl at the age of 12 and was not brought up into a family that really hunted that much. He was introduced to waterfowl hunting through one of his close friends growing up and was instantly hooked. Ever since then he has dedicated his life to the sport and has chased waterfowl through the majority of the Mississippi flyway and parts of the Central flyway. Clay spends his off seasons in preperation of the upcoming season and spending time with his family. Starting in September the chase is on with the local early goose season kicking off in Michigan. From there he travels to the neighboring country of Canada to join Fall Flight Outdoors in mid to late september to close down their early season goose hunting. Following that he can be found in his home state or traveling the country in search of that next big hunt and capturing waterfowl hunts on film.
Since his introduction to waterfowl hunting Clay has worked with Lewis Custom Calls where he helped with goose and duck call production as well as filming, producing, and editing 2 waterfowl hunting dvd's that we're found in Gander Mountains through out the midwest. From there he joined Joe Thole and Matthew Cagle owner of Rig' Em Right Waterfowl in the production of The Dawn Patrol DVD Series that gained national recognition and could be found at the big box stores around the country. Now you can find him working on some new projects bringing waterfowl hunting tv to the online community 24-7 and 365 days a year at no cost with the production of a new waterfowl hunting tv series at 365 Waterfowl the online waterfowl hunting tv show starting this fall 2015. He is also working on another long time project at Giant Ganderz Outdoors a waterfowl hunting gear outfitter dealing with mostly the production of snow goose hunting gear available online.
Outside of waterfowl hunting Clay works as a web designer/developer where he is constantly working on new projects for the internet as well. His latest project for the web is a website that offers a database of waterfowl hunting outfitters through out the country so that anyone looking for a waterfowl hunting outfitter can look up outfitters by waterfowl species, by state, by canadian province, and by waterfowl migration flyway.
In 1999 Clay started hunting snow geese in Northwest Missouri around the famed Squaw Creek National Wildlife Refuge where he was introduced to the spring snow goose migration. Ever since then he has spent his time in the relentless pursuit of chasing the snow geese from Arkansas to South Dakota. Snow goose hunting is a blessing and a curse, it is one of those things that you can't turn away from if you get started. There are days that you just wish you didn't get out of bed but, there are those other days that make all that pain and suffering of dealing with all the dreaded weather conditions seem non existant. Sharing those experiences with others is what brought us here to offer these snow goose hunting opportunities today.
