About-Marlon (1)

My story is a bit different, as hunting has not always been in my life – I’m a self made bowhunter through and through. I did not have family that hunted nor family that loved to camp and hike big mountains…  I was the Son of a commercial fisherman, born in the mountain country of Hilo, Hawaii.  I was raised big game fishing for Marlin, huge yellowfin tuna and lots of other crazy looking pelagics…  I spent my childhood sailing around the world on a 60 ft. sailboat with my family, learning other native cultures and enjoying the world! When I turned eighteen, I attained my 100 ton Captains License with the USCG and Captained 70 ft. multi million dollar sport fishing yachts for elite, private individuals.  I did this for years!  Catching lot’s of fish, winning hundreds of thousands in tournament money and reaching the Apex of that career path.

Gray-Light-'What-is' (1)

Essentially, Gray Light is the first and last hour of each day we experience in the field. It represents the moments in time when we as outdoorsmen find 90% of the quarry we will ever get the chance to pursue. Historically, the first moments of gray are the only chance we have to really find a truly mature buck or bull. Most seasoned outdoorsmen understand that a truly mature animal won’t allow itself to get caught flat-footed in the open during broad daylight. As a rule to follow mature animals bed before the sun comes up and will not get out of bed until after the sun has gone down. With this in mind, I have always hunted or fished in the Gray Light. As an outdoorsman, what better name to bestow on what we do in the wild!
