Minnesota BHA board member, Will Jenkins, is BHA’s new Upper Great Lakes Outreach Coordinator. Born and raised in Central Virginia, Will now resides in Hudson, Wisconsin with his wife and 3 kids. Growing up he mostly hunted whitetails and turkey with family, but developed a passion for the outdoors after discovering bowhunting and taking a trip for trout and turkey to Highlwand WMA in the Virginia mountains. After moving to the Midwest, his love for public land and the backcountry was further cemented after chasing South Dakota mule deer.
Will has been a freelance outdoor writer and blogger for 5 years having written for various publications on the topics of hunting, fishing and conservation. He has assisted with multiple MN BHA programs/projects, such as the Adult Learn to Hunt program with the Minnesota DNR as well the initiative to help protect the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness from sulfide mining. Thank you, Will, for stepping up to the plate for BHA and wildlands/wildlife!
