About Mia

mission-statementI’m happy you stopped by. I hail from the mountains of beautiful Southwest Colorado. I grew up near the San Juan River as a young child and have fond memories of days in the mountains and by the river. I spent my time as a child near the river in front of our home, and hiking in the hills behind. It is there that I began my adventures and learned to respect the outdoors.

My father hunted to provide for our family and taught me firearm safety and how to dress and process animals.  My mother taught me how to prepare wild game, how to garden, sew and to live off the land.

In my teen years, my parents divorced and I moved to the city with my mother.  It is there that I learned to truly appreciate the outdoors and all my fantastic experiences as a young child.

I returned to Colorado and now spend many days in the field, hunting, fishing and shooting.I feel it is important for everyone to get a chance to connect with Mother Nature and the outdoor life.  I spend many days in the outdoors, hunting, fishing or shooting and always look forward to sharing my many unforgettable adventures.

I strive to preserve wildlife, habitat and all of God’s creation. I am hunting guide at Wolf Creek Outfitters. I teach firearms and archery skills, I write, I vlog and I contribute to podcasts. I do all of this in hopes to inspire others.
