Hunter was born in Eastville, Virginia and currently lives in Moreland, Georgia. From an early age Hunter was introduced to the outdoors by his father. Hunter's father traveled the world in search of big game. He brought Hunter and his brother Daniel along and taught them what he had learned after a lifetime of experience in the field.
Although Hunter has fished his whole life, he was first introduced to fly fishing in Jackson Hole when he was 13. One big cut throat eating a hopper changed Hunters course in life completely.
Several years later Hunter was introduced to competitive fly fishing after a guide trip with NC Fly Fishing team member Nick Johnson. Hunter joined the team and began competing when he was 15 years old. The next year, a now 16 year old Hunter traveled to State College Pennsylvania for his first Youth National Championships. After a tough competition Hunter won gold and was named National Champion.
After a string of consistency and excellent finishes Hunter was asked to be a part of the Worlds Team that represents the United States at the World Fly Fishing Championships. Hunter and the Youth team have won the nations first medals in International Fly Fishing Comeptition. Gold in Italy, Silver in France, and Gold in Ireland.
Although Hunter knows that a day will come that he doesn't compete any more, the experience he is gaining traveling the world and representing his country is one he doesn't take lightly. Hunters philosophy on fly fishing, competing, and hunting, is the same motto we share on the show....."to be better tomorrow, than you are today." "Keeping an open mind and using every experience in the outdoors to make you the best you can be has been the secrets to my success".
