Tyler Frantz caught the outdoor illness as a young boy, when he stayed up late, anxiously awaiting his father’s return from a successful trip to bear camp. His condition worsened at age 15, when he arrowed his first whitetail on the family farm in Schuylkill County. Since then, Tyler has been fortunate to hunt and fish all across the great state of Pennsylvania. Now, he shares his passion for the outdoors as a successful freelance writer for various local, state, and national publications. He teaches fulltime in Lebanon County, where he resides with an understanding wife, inquisitive son and energetic bird dog.
