Sole Adventure exists to inform and inspire passionate bowhunters of all types.
There is something truly amazing about harvesting a wild animal with a bow and arrow. It takes an immense amount of dedication, patience, skill, and yes, ultimately a bit of luck. This pursuit is something that has changed my life, and it is something that I want to share with others.
Any bowhunter that is honest will readily admit that they are on a journey of continuous growth and change. We are constantly learning new things, and often discovering that what we thought we knew may not always be true.
I am on a constant quest to know more about hunting techniques, wildlife behavior, conservation, outdoors skills, and developments in archery equipment. I hope you will join me in that adventure!
What does “Sole Adventure” mean?
What is a sole? Well in one sense it is a part of a shoe, right? “Sole” can also be defined as
“being the only one” or “functioning on independent power”. In another sense, “sole” is a word play on “soul”. These three aspects of “sole” are critical to what Sole Adventure is.
A sole adventure is about being outdoors, exploring on foot. It is about discovering nature and wilderness. It is about finding new places and experiencing open spaces. A sole adventure is also about leaving the comforts of my daily life and pushing myself to do something on my own. Finally, a sole (soul) adventure is where I rediscover who I am, and why I am here.

“It’s paradoxical that the death of your quarry is besides the point and at the same time the whole point. A chase without a kill as its object is like a journey without a destination; a kill without a chase employing all the hunter’s craft is killing, not hunting.”
