|First of all thanks for visiting 1895Gunner.com!
Hello! My name is Scott and I’m a husband, dad, and enthusiast for all things outdoors! My wife and I are parents to two adult children, and grandparents to one sweet boy! We moved to NW Georgia in 2015, I'm originally from Illinois & my wife from Florida!
Everyday I try to live a balanced, healthy lifestyle while juggling all of my favorite things. I am very excited to share my passion for the outdoors, handloading, range fun, hunting, and fishing lifestyle!
Welcome to my life - I can’t wait to bring you along on the adventure!
I have been hunting my entire life and am passionate about sharing my knowledge and adventures with others. From a very young age I took to the field learning the land and the animals in it. I constantly pushed myself in the field to be the best I could and learned a lot of good lessons along the way... often through trial and error or the school of hard knocks!
After high school I made my living in local factories often working 2nd or 3rd shifts allowing me to spend more time fishing & hunting. Central Illinois was a wonderful place to grow up for pheasant, quail, dove, rabbit, squirrel and especially deer.
I've since moved many more times from Florida to New Mexico then Minnesota and then back to Florida. Finally we find ourselves in NW Georgia living the outdoor experience.
I've spent a great deal of time developing a social media presence over the last dozen or so years. From Facebook, to firearms forums, YouTube, Instagram, Twitter and the web I'm lucky enough to have grown a following of my posted interests. I'm a lever gun collector, shooter and hand loader which drives the majority of my following. There are hundreds of thousands of lever gun lovers across this great land and the remaining democracies around the world.
Starting this year I've been fortunate to expand my online presence via brand ambassadorship for:
Go Gear Direct,
Caldwell Shooting Supplies,
These seven companies supply the outdoor enthusiast with almost endless quality products much of what I use personally as they relate to firearms & fishing.
When I'm not in the field or online I'm writing for a couple of sportsman's magazines! My 1st article "Hunted by Anti-Hunters" was recently published by Field Ethos Journal and Sporting Classics Daily just published an article of mine, "Like Moths to a Flame".
Meanwhile, please follow me here and across social media all under the name 1895Gunner.
