Chris grew up hunting with his father near Vicksburg, MS where he was born and raised. Chris harvested his first doe at age nine and the rest is history. Chris got his start in the outdoor industry when he began guiding bowhunters at Tara Wildlife in 1995. At Tara, Chris found his true passion for bowhunting whitetails. In the off-season Chris enjoys riding horses and bass fishing. He and his wife, Heather, also own Banner Kennels where they train dogs everything from simple obedience, retrievers to blood trailing. Chris also has one son, Haden Ashley, that shares the same passion for hunting as his dad does.
