PSE’s Albert Quackenbush – A Die Hard Bowhunter
What you see is what you get. That’s exactly how I have lived my life and how I want to be known. My name is Albert Quackenbush and I am a die-hard bow hunter. I have been a bow hunter for 28+ years and I most definitely passionate about it.
Up to this point, I spent most of my life living in Western New York State and utilized everything from a bow to a firearm. I hunted everything, but my passion was for whitetails. I now reside in Southern California where I strictly bow hunt and love to hunt anything I can. One of the things that make it even better is having a great group of hunting buddies out here. In NY I have two of the best hunting partners a guy could ask for; my dad and brother. We always swap stories, talk about gear and plan our next hunting trips. I always look forward to heading back to NY to hunt whitetails with them.
The SoCal Bow hunter blog (SoCalBowhunter.com) started for a few reasons. First and foremost, I love to write. I love telling stories and I getting people involved. I saw little to none of that here in Southern California. I also started it to share information and to get information. When I moved to California, I couldn’t get a hunter to help with anything. Everyone was super tight-lipped. It not only frustrated me, it angered me that my fellow hunters would even give me a tip or two. I wasn’t asking for hunting spots, just where to start. That is primarily the reason I started the blog. The second reason is that I love to test out gear and see what works, what doesn’t, and what I would recommend to my fellow hunters.
I am a Pro Staff member for DIYbowhunter.com, Field Logic and Piranha Custom Bowstrings. I am a member of the RMEF, California Deer Association, NWTF, and is a Life Member for the North American Hunting Club. Best of all, I am now part of the PSE Blogging Staff and a PSE Field Staff member.
Most of all I just want to be the best husband and father I can be. Being a hunter, while important to me, is secondary. Sharing what I know with my daughter will be ongoing as she grows up. I feel that sharing what I know will help keep our heritage alive for future generations.
