There is a saying, "You can take the girl out of the country, but you can't take the country out of the girl." For me, that couldn't be any truer! As a young girl, my stepfather was an avid bow hunter. Through my teen years, my mother [Donna Fisher] worked as the designer for a number of outdoor related magazines. Now, as an adult, I decided to return to the outdoor world the best way I knew how, head first! With the loving support of my husband Eric and our five year old son Austin, I contacted Allan and asked if he could help me. Allan is now my mentor and I am an enthusiastic hunter and the newest member of the Ellis Outdoors Team as the "Social Media Coordinator".

He is usually the last man seated at the table when there is a pile of steamed crabs, and he believes a soft crab is better served on a sandwich than on a hook.
