Ty’s been an avid outdoorsman since early childhood, where he spent countless days of youth fishing and chasing small game in the woods surrounding Breaux Bridge, Louisiana under the guidance of his father. When his dad slowly regressed from hunting, the fire had already been lit in Ty, and he soon found himself tagging along with every relative or friend that would take him. When he experienced his first successful deer hunt in Texas at age 12, Ty was totally consumed by it, but came to the bitter realization that deer hunting was tougher than he initially thought once back in Louisiana’s woods.
Years of learning from his own mistakes and reading countless deer hunting publications facilitated his progression into an accomplished deer hunter, but it was only after meeting Chuck Rozas, someone equally devoted to his passion, that Ty took the plunge into the bottomless pit of bowhunting. Plagued with this sickness, he and Chuck began exploring Louisiana’s public lands, where over the years they honed their skills and dulled many broadheads on some of the Bayou State’s most leery deer.
Ty is currently a member of Let’em Grow Hunting Club in St. Landry Parish, an organization tightly managed and consisting of only family and close friends. Under the guidance of club president and cousin Corey Leblanc, they’ve worked to transform the property into a shining example of that area’s potential, having taken numerous quality bucks there every year.
