Ray is an Indiana transplant, originally from the Virginia-North Carolina area. Ray was a high strung salt water fisherman. Since the saltwater is now gone, he has turned his attention to the woods.Ray eats, sleeps and breathes whitetail deer and turkey. Ray served in the US Navy as a Machinery Repairman and still currently works as a CNC Machinist. He has a loving wife, two children and eight grandkids. He is the founder of Whitetail Up and believes that it is all about the hunt and not about the rack. Time spent in the outdoors with God and family is what is most important.
