Cody was raised in the mountains of Colorado by two elk hunters. His upbringing on Yampa River lead him to life pursuing game and fish and a deep respect for his quarry and the wild places they inhabit. From Patagonian Brown Trout to New Mexico Oryx, Cody has guided, hunted and fished across the globe. He has also written extensively about his adventures and has appeared on MeatEater and Hushin'. Currently, his focus is instilling a passion for the outdoors, wildlife, land stewardship and hunting in his young children.
