Sheldon grew up in Holton, Michigan. His love for the outdoors started when he was about 5 years old. He fondly remembers the summer days at their cabin in Ruby Creek, where he and his grandfather would go to catch bass and bluegill. From there, his love of the outdoor lifestyle grew. He started hunting with his dad at the age of ten and shot his first deer at the age of eleven.
Hunting and fishing are not just what Sheldon does, they are a part of who he is. Every free second he can find, he is enjoying these hobbies. Whether it be drifting spawn in the river for steelhead or walking through the woods hunting small game, he spends the majority of his time outdoors.
Sheldon is also a father. He is looking forward to the day his son, Braxton, is old enough to start hunting and fishing with him. Sheldon will be passing down his skills just as they were passed down to him.
