About the Author:

Mark Hampton is one of those fortunate individuals who grew up in a family of avid hunters. He was raised in rural, south Missouri where hunting and fishing were a way of life. The local school closed for deer season and still does to this day. Mark's father was serious about hunting taking polar bear, grizzly, dall sheep, moose, bighorn, mule deer, elk, and many other North American trophies. The passion for hunting ran deep in the family. Today, Hampton has hunted in twenty five countries on six continents and continues to explore remote areas searching for game. He has taken over one hundred and forty different species of big game with a handgun alone. Far from being a "collector", Mark is passionate about hunting. His enthusiastic dedication and goal-oriented drive has led him to various mountain ranges in pursuit of difficult and sought after big game.
