Michael was born and raised in the game rich state of Texas. He was introduced to hunting at a very young age by his father and grandparents, however, his hunting obsession did not truly start until age 12, when he harvested a 21-point non-typical whitetail buck. After his father told him he had accomplished something that most hunters never would do, Michael's drive for hunting grew stronger. To prove that he could do it again, he set out to learn everything he could about Whitetail Deer. In 1998 his hard work and perseverance paid off when he harvested a free-range 199-inch gross Pope & Young Non-Typical Whitetail buck, that is still a Texas State Record.
Today Michael owns and operates H & H Hunt'n, an outfitting and guide service; Hunters 4 Christ, a family friendly hunting destination and Christian Hunting Game Camp; and Huntnleases.com, an online service that connects landowners and hunters looking for hunting leases. He has been featured in numerous magazines and newspapers and
