Dave comes from LaGrange, IL. His passion for canoe country was born in 1980 when he came to this area fresh out of high school to work for the summer. Since that time, Dave has traveled throughout the Quetico Provincial Park and Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness learning their portages, lakes, campsites, and fishing spots. He has been working in the outfitting industry for over 20 years. He is our General Manager. You will find him pitching in wherever there is something that needs doing. Dave is also a superb nature photographer and you will find his prints at many of the finer shops in Ely. Dave lives on Moose Lake year round and besides photography enjoys hiking, fishing (he is superb), canoeing and camping with his wife Eva, and son, David.
