Whether he’s cutting wood, sitting in a wetland, fishing muskies, or snorkeling Spider Lake for treasure, Jeff spends as much time as possible outdoors.

I would like to experience life and community minus so many of today’s complexities during a time that shaped the future of our country. I know that “Rascal” is a memoir so I hope it counts anyway. It is my favorite book.

Many thanks to Barry Adams for this feature in the Wisconsin State Journal. I have walked many paths in life that influence my writing, in addition to careers in law enforcement and natural resources. (An interesting note: Barry recorded and edited the video of our wetland tour using only his phone.)
