Kevin Paulson

Kevin Paulson started HuntingLife.com in 2006 to create a resource to share his passion for the outdoors, hunting and conservation.  Prior to that Kevin co-owned an outfitting business in Idaho and Montana focused on elk and mule deer. He sold his portion of the business after his father passed away in 2006.   Kevin’s passion for outdoor gear, shooting and the entire hunting industry has allowed his business to grow exponentially over the last 20 years.  Kevin was a board member for the Professional Outdoor Media Association, and he is singularly focused on bringing more outdoor writers and influencers into the association.  Kevin is focused currently on growing a network called Outdoor Hive using new technology to benefit outdoor, hunting and shooting companies.

Kevin enjoys mentoring business partners, writers and influencers as well as new hunters looking to learn.  Over the past 20 months, Kevin has been working with his dog, a Deutsch Drahthaar named Miko, and working with a trainer to learn more about upland hunting behind a pointer.  Every step of the process has been about learning and sharing that connection with his dog.

Annalena Wood

Annalena Wood is a copywriter who is the owner of Annalena Wood Creations LLC where she promotes her writing services and is a contributing writer for Thermo Gears. “Field experience” in this industry to her, is more like her lifestyle, as she’s been hunting with her family every year since she was 8. Her dad bought her her first BB gun for her 5th birthday. At the age of 9, her dad made her a deal that if she passed her Hunter’s Safety Course that he would buy her first hunting rife of her own to carry that next fall. And that’s exactly what she did.

For the next 12 years, Annalena carried her rifle with passion and pride for her love of the outdoors and the experience of hunting. Her most memorable hunting season was back in 2015, when her and her dad were drawn for special elk tags that allowed them the chance to fill their tags with an actual bull elk rather than a spike. That year both her and her dad came home with their first trophy elks, with hers a 6 by 6 pointer and her dad’s a 6 by 5.
