This week we talk with a relatively new deer hunter, Augusto Zimmermann. Augusto is from Brazil and didn’t grow up with a hunting background. Moving to Georgia after college, Augusto stumbled on NDA’s Field to Fork program and was able to quickly foster a passion for hunting and the outdoors.

Augusto shares the process and challenges of learning to deer hunt as an adult, what he learned from Field to Fork, his success in the field over the last three seasons, and how he’s now giving back by becoming a mentor himself.
