Patrick Long

I am a college student and avid outdoorsmen in the great state of Georgia. I killed my first deer at the young age of 5 with a .243. Since then i have hunted nearly every year. I love hunting whitetail, ducks, and turkey, but most of all I love to learn. My goal is to teach every single one of my readers something new in every piece of content I make. If I'm not outdoors, I am probably studying for my next big test, hanging out with my friends and family, or I am making content for the community around this blog. If you have any questions or would just like to strike up a conversation feel free to shoot me an email at Patrick.long@omegaoutdoors.net
