Tyler Baumgarten was born and raised in south central Iowa. He started out fishing mostly farm ponds, but it wasn’t until college that his friends opened the doors to the world of hunting and furthered his respect for nature. Tyler started, as many have, with a .22 chasing after small game, quickly moving to deer and turkey. He has recently matched the success he has had gun hunting with a bow and arrow. When not hunting, he is preparing for the next hunting season, helping out around friend’s farms, watching sprint cars or just hanging out with family and friends.
