After school, Jim continued hunting on public lands before heading to Ball State University and obtaining a bachelors degree in Natural Resources.  After moving to Iowa, Jim landed his first career in land management in 2001 assisting a friend on his property.  In the first year of management they found three bucks, the largest measuring 110”.  The first three years of structured improvement 126” to 140” bucks were being harvested.  Drastic improvement in buck size has continued with many bucks from 150” to 184” with four of the deer scoring over 170”.
