Who is Evan Peterson?

Evan Peterson with a nice buckMy name is Evan Peterson.  I am twenty years old and live in the ever expanding town of Blythewood, South Carolina.  I graduated from Heathwood Hall and attended one year at Clemson.  I have been brought up hunting from a very young age and have always had a huge affinity for anything to do with the outdoors.  I live in one corner of my grandmother?s 400 acre farm not far from the small horse farm where I grew up.  This is the place where my hunting addiction began.

I was introduced into hunting by helping my dad take care of the pesky squirrels that liked to cause damage on our horse farm.  I started off by being the spotter.  I took it upon myself to be on constant recon for the invasive critters and alert my dad the moment I saw one enter the perimeter.  For my eleventh birthday I got my first gun.  It was a Gamo high powered pellet gun and from that point on no squirrel was safe at our farm.  I can remember several times that my dad and I would keep our guns close at hand, just in case one rodent became brave and decided to cross into the danger zone.  

Not too long after that I went on my first turkey hunt on my grandmother?s farm and successfully bagged a good three year old gobbler with an eleven inch beard.  From then on I was hooked and moved on to deer and ducks.  I am still that way today.  The only difference is that my addiction has grown so much that I am looking to become a popular hunting show personality as a profession.  It takes time, but one day I intend to see myself on a hunting channel pursuing wild game across the world and getting it all on camera.  This may seem like an unusual career path to some, but it is something I can?t imagine not doing.  

I got a huge break last July when I contacted Ken Cobb from Huntin the World Southern Style.  I went up to the studio to see what the show was all about and from the moment I walked through the door, I was convinced that this was the place for me.  From that point on I have been doing all that I can to learn as much as I can about the industry and running a camera.  I went on several trips last fall as a cameraman and got to see first-hand what it is like to be a part of a hunting television show.  I got to see the low-country of South Carolina, Kentucky, Kansas, Virginia, and Iowa last deer season which has given me so much experience and really helped me realize that I am meant for this job.     

I love everything there is about hunting; the adrenalin, fatigue, and emotion are what keep me craving more.  As soon as one season ends, I am getting ready for the next.  Whether it is honing my skills in the field by looking at new travel corridors and tracks or shooting dozens of arrows every day in the summer in preparation for the following fall, I am ready and motivated.

I look forward to sharing some of my hunting stories and experiences here with you on WeHuntSC.com.  I?m glad to be a part of the team and glad to have the opportunity to share stories with my fellow SC hunters.  Hopefully I?ll learn a great deal about the outdoors and have fun doing it.  Counting down until the season starts,
