Since age 6, his love for the outdoors has grown along with his passion for hunting and conservation. His first big game hunt was to Alaska for Dall sheep. After succeeding with a 40″ ram, he never looked back and the pursuit was on. Wilson has since collected 27 mountain sheep of the world with 20 different species. He has 25 North American species and all the huntable game birds. After hunting in Africa, Asia, Europe, South America, North America, and Australia he has collected 245 species over the world.
