|Derrick and son Wyatt after a successful north central Idaho turkey hunt|
Derrick lives in Deary, ID with his wife Tera, and children Katelyn and Wyatt. Derrick has two passions that he pursues: backpacking and hunting. He is happiest when he can combine the two. Derrick is fortunate to live in close proximity to some of the premier backpack hunting opportunities in the lower 48, and became active in BHA to help ensure that the opportunities he enjoys are available for his children.
