A native of Cleveland, Ohio, Mike Carney cut his bowhunting teeth on burly Buckeye-State whitetails, and he has taken numerous Pope-and-Young-class whitetails across the Midwest. This accomplished stickbow shooter has also matched wits with all sorts of North American game, from antelope and mule deer, to elk and moose, to black bears, wild turkeys, and flying Asian carp, just to name a few.

Not only is he an avid bowhunter, but he is an accomplished bow technician who excels at getting the most out of all types of archery equipment. Mike currently keeps watch over big whitetail bucks from his home outside Peoria, Illinois, where he lives with his wife Heidi and his daughter Lauren.
