More about Ken:  Currently the Capital District Chairman and Mississippi State Recruitment Chairman.  I grew up in a family that loved to fish and hunt.  We primarily hunted deer, turkeys, squirrels, and rabbits.  I had shot a few wood ducks on impromptu hunts in flooded hardwood bottoms as a youth but I really didn't start hunting ducks until I was thirty.  I dove into it headfirst and have made many great friends and memories along the way.  As a result, waterfowl hunting and conservation have become a passion for me that I hope to pass on to my children and many generations to come.
