Born and raised in the heart of Minnesota’s lake country, it’s only natural that Jim’s passion for the outdoors began at an early age. Fortunate as a child to accompany his parents in the woods and water often, Jim learned a deep appreciation for the natural beauty and order of the outdoors. Hunting and fishing have been a family tradition for generations and now Jim is able to share that love of the outdoors with his wife Jackie and his three children.
When Jim isn’t booking trips for clients or working with outfitters you can find him on the water chasing muskies. As the temperature drops and fall arrives, you can expect to find him in the woods in pursuit of an elusive whitetail with his bow or in the company of good friends seeking ringnecks in the corn stubble or in the blind hunting waterfowl. Hosted Hunts has afforded Jim the opportunity to hunt and fish all across the continent from the Gila of New Mexico to the barren tundra of northern Canada from the hills of west Oregon to the rolling seas off the east coast. Jim is quick to acknowledge that the joy of sharing these outdoor adventures with friends and family is what’s most important. Spending time outdoors is a very special gift. With a passion for the outdoors and a love of travel, working for Hosted Hunts, Inc. became a dream come true. Jim notes that the people he has met are without question the most rewarding aspect of his career with Hosted Hunts.
Jim is dedicated to superior customer satisfaction. His attention to detail, organization and communication skills have been a driving force in the success of the company.
Jim is a volunteer firefighter, youth firearms safety instructor, permit to carry instructor, and a lifetime member of SCI and the NRA.
