I grew up in the swamp having fun, fishing and hogging. I went to school but didn't really like it. Only friends that I had are ones that I met in the swamp.
I was 11 years old when I pulled my first log. I sold it, made some easy money and that’s when I knew that is what I wanted to do. I pulled logs when I wasn't hunting and fishing.
Growing up I knew a lot of people that sold logs for a living. I started with a little boat and pulled one log at a time. The oldest log that I ever pulled so far was over 500 years old.
I was 5 years old when I got my first BB gun. When I was 7 my dad gave me a .22 rifle and I still have it.
I like to get Sinker Cypress and Sinker Pine logs because that’s the ones I can make the most money with.
Ya’ll have probably heard stories about me being bitten by poisonous snakes and never got sick. The stories are true, I guess I’m immune to them.
All of my hobbies are in the swamp and the swamp is my home.
I really don’t like to leave it but this year I’m gonna try to get out and meet some of you fans.
We’re gonna try to get some appearances set up and see how it goes. I love my fans and want to thank each and every one of you.
I’ll have some new t-shirts, caps and some other stuff up for sale soon so check back. My web guy is working on those now. Ahh Sh*t can you believe that I got my own web guy. I would have never thought I would have one of those.
