Chris Yasher (Pennsylvania)

Chris grew up in western Pennsylvania and was first introduced to hunting by his father at the age of 12.  Growing up in rural western Pennsylvania enabled Chris to pursue his passion for the outdoors through hunting, fishing, whitewater raftering, and camping with his family.  Chris caught his first fish, and harvested his first buck (a spike) on gorgeous pristine land of a long time family friend in Ligonier, PA.
