Josh Kaywood grew up backpacking, climbing and kayaking in the Blue Ridge Mountains, where he developed a passion for the outdoors. While attending college at the University of Mississippi he was introduced to a new landscape, the Mississippi Delta, where he fell in love with waterfowl hunting. The cypress swamps and fields of the delta provided a new lens through which to view the outdoors and inevitably led to his growing interests in small game hunting, bowhunting whitetails and black bears.
Before coming to BHA Josh developed a career as an entrepreneur in healthcare, largely focusing on business development. Josh is a founding member of the Southeast chapter and served as its first chair, which fostered a desire for a deeper level of commitment to the BHA mission.
