Dave Brinker is a father, a husband, a musician, and someone that has openly struggled with mental health, to the point that he strongly considered committing suicide. Hunting and the outdoors couldn’t be more “in the blood” for Dave. He grew up in the elk woods of Oregon, taken into those woods by his Dad, so hunting, and specifically elk hunting is engrained into who Dave is. If you listen to Dave’s story you may find some of yours – a love for hunting, dealing with a heavy issue in your life, finding solace in family and the outdoors. Dave’s story is about way more than a kill associated with hunting – its fashioned him into who he is today, and could be a major part of why he is still who he is today.
Grateful thanks and support to the SCIF HLF Hunter Legacy 100 Fund for supporting showcasing the true heart of hunters.
