Zink Calls - Zink Calls Field Staff
Jared was born and raised in South West Michigan.
Growing up in whitetail country, he
began hunting deer with his
dad at the age of 4, and took his
first hunting trip at age 6 to hunt grouse and woodcock in the northern Lower Peninsula.
continued to pursue deer and small game with his
father and friends until he
was introduced to waterfowl hunting as a senior in high school.
Not only did he
enjoy shooting waterfowl, he
first experience hunting with a retriever.
Since that day, Jared
has become an avid water fowler, focusing mainly on geese, but has enjoyed many duck hunts as well.
After moving to Western Nebraska in Mid 2007 with his
girlfriend Casey and Chesapeake Katie, Jared
has made friends with a couple other die hard water fowlers.
Together, they hunt whenever possible and hardly ever without their dogs.
Having hunted from Michigan to Nebraska and many places in between, it's the companionship of both man and dog that fuel the desire to return to the fields and water day in and day out.
Jared began working at Flatlander Kennels in May of 2008.
considers himself extremely lucky to not only do something he
loves, but also work with a great friend who shares the same passions he
new job also offers him the opportunity to do a little more hunting, something that was difficult before.
is very grateful for the opportunity to join the Zink "family" and looks forward to meeting and hunting with many new people as well as promote the Zink product and name throughout the west.
