David Fauver (Maryland)
David Raymond Fauver grew up in Stevensville, Maryland. Stevensville was a small town on Kent Island along the eastern shore of the Chesapeake Bay. Dave was introduced to hunting by his father at the age of 12 years old. Living on the eastern shore, David was able to take advantage of the surrounding abundance of water fowl, small and large game animals. David’s first experience with hunting was for waterfowl. Dave says that the first time he remembers stepping into a blind with his father, on the Peninsula of Kent Island, he was hooked. Since that day David has enjoyed the last 31 years around the water, woods and farm lands. David spent his early years hunting ducks and geese along the eastern shore and grduated later to harvesting his first deer at the age of 16. Living and growing up on the eastern shore of the Chesapeake Bay, David also enjoyed fishing along its coastal waters, back creeks and ponds.

David has hunted in 7 different states which include Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, New York, Illinois and Texas. With 31 years of hunting experience in the United States, David’s experiences ranges from harvesting waterfowl, upland game birds, small game and large game animals. David has hunted White Tail Deer, Sea Ducks, Puddle Ducks, Canadian Geese, Snow Geese, North American Wild Turkey and Dove.
David has harvested game with shot gun, rifle, muzzle loader and bow. David is also an accomplished Canadian goose caller. Dave raised and trained his trusted lab-retriever mix, Brittney (since passed) to retrieve birds for him. Hunting game birds was always enjoyable with Brittany and he was never lonely with his faithful companion sitting right beside him.
David still lives within 40 miles of where he grew up in Maryland and now enjoys sharing his hunting experiences with his son, Josh, who also enjoys deer hunting, goose hunting and fishing.
