Bruce's outdoor journey began in the hardwoods and streams of Rhode Island hunting squirrels, rabbits, ruffed grouse and fishing for brook trout and bass. He moved to Long Island and surfed fish for stripers and blues along the Atlantic coast.

It wasn't until he went to college in Wisconsin that he found his passion, Whitetail deer. 1966 was his first whitetail hunt and he has never looked back. His adventures have taken him from Ungava Bay to Lake Illiamna, most of the Canadian Provinces and the whitetail states of the Midwest. His hunting articles can be found at goHunt.com and GOABC. His intimate knowledge of big game hunting in the Rockies allowed him to be a contributor to goHunt.com Insider. He has served on conversation boards and participated as a member of the Colorado Sportsman's Alliance. He is known in the whitetail world as the very successful host, Executive Director and Co-Founder of Whitetail Rendezvous Podcast.
