HUNTING

Mike Hunsucker is a bowhunter, plain and simple. The Missouri native will do just about anything for the chance to scout, hunt, and take a mature whitetail. It’s a passion that has taken him all over the country with his archery equipment, all the while documenting his adventures for Heartland Bowhunter, his TV show on the Outdoor Channel. Bowhunter and storyteller — not a bad combination.

CONVERSATION WITH OUR HERO INTERVIEW

QUESTION:
What goes through your head when you first wake up in the morning when you go hunting?
ANSWER:
When it comes to bowhunting, preparation is the key to success. When I wake up, I immediately go through a mental checklist making sure that I have done everything within my power to be successful.
QUESTION:
Where is your favorite place to hunt?
ANSWER:
I have been very fortunate to hunt all over the country and experience some really incredible adventures, but no matter where this life takes me, I always find myself coming back to the mid­west whitetail woods where I cut my teeth and first took up the sport.
QUESTION:
If you could do anything better, what would it be?
ANSWER:
Being in our position as industry professionals, we have a large influence on the market. Inspiring and encouraging people to become hunters and participate in the hunting lifestyle is something that we pride ourselves in, but it is something that we can always do a better job of especially when it comes to the next generation. It is up to us to ensure that hunting is around for our kids and the generations to follow, and that all starts with shedding a positive light on the sport and the industry.
QUESTION:
Who are your heroes?
ANSWER:
My father is a huge role model of mine in both the sport and in business. Not only did he introduce me to hunting, in turn creating a monster. He also instilled some of the most important values in me as a young man that I rely on today in life.
QUESTION:
If there is any love­-hate relationship with any aspect of what you do, can you describe what that is?
ANSWER:
There’s a lot more to what we do than what meets the eye. Hunting is only a small part of it. It’s the busy hunting months that become a grind when we still have the business to run behind the scenes.
QUESTION:
What sound or noise do you love?
ANSWER:
Spring turkeys gobbling.
QUESTION:
What would be your day job if you weren’t doing what you are currently doing?
ANSWER:
I would probably work in real estate or own another small business.
QUESTION:
If you could bring anybody in the world with you to do what you love (dead or alive), who would it be?
ANSWER:
My grandpa who was taken from us too young, who I unfortunately did not get to spend a lot of time with as he passed when I was a young kid.
