I was privileged to be one of the presenters at the Senior Americans Day 2015 event held at the W. R. Davies Center on the University of Wisconsin – Eau Claire campus. My presentation encompassed how my Whitetail Deer Hunting photography series went from being an idea in my head to a now established and published book. I shared my journey from start to finish as I drove from county to county across Wisconsin looking for hunters. I touched on how I approached each of them to be an integral part of my book idea and the now end result working with the Wisconsin Historical Society Press and the ultimate creation of Blaze Orange – Whitetail Deer Hunting in Wisconsin. I shared a few of my intimate experiences with the hunters and their views on the tradition of hunting in our state. I left my presentation open ended and encouraged the audience to share their thoughts and hunting stories, which was a great ending to the day.
