This week on Neophyte in the Woods, I’m joined by Jim Lacefield. Jim has served 23 years in the Army National Guard – 6 in the infantry and the remainder in logistics. He began his service as an enlisted man, but was commissioned in 2005 and has achieved the rank of Major. He has two deployments to Iraq between 2003 and 2004 and 2009 and 2010.
Jim is, like myself, a later-life hunter – Beginning in the fall of 2012 when an army buddy asked if his son would like to join in on a pheasant hunt. Soon after, Jim was being begged to start hunting! The rest is history. He bagged his first Whitetail in the fall of 2014 and first Gobbler in 2017. In between, he harvested many squirrels and helped his son shoot his first deer, too!
In this episode, Jim and I run the gamut: From how he got started hunting, to discussing his preferred deer tactics and favorite hunts. Jim is a firm believer in not breaking the bank to buy the latest and greatest gear. We discuss the simple pleasures of a basic, functional shotgun and gear.
As always, if you’d like to come on the show, I’m always interested in talking to folks about the pursuits they’re passionate about, so PLEASE don’t hesitate to reach out to me!
