Rob Poorman's  Field Journal
Bio:
20 plus years ago Rob Poorman picked up his first bow, an old fiberglass recurve which changed his life forever. Moving from that vintage bow into his first compound at the age of 15, Rob not only made bowhunting a passion but also of part of who he is. If you stroll through Rob’s hometown in North East Pennsylvania and ask those that know him, they will tell you that he takes his bowhunting very serious as well as the outdoor industry.

From his truck to his home there is no doubt that hunting is in his blood. Through the years Rob has taken on many adventures and challenges in the outdoor industry. He not only took top finishes in local and national 3D competitions, but also spends his time promoting bowhunting and hunting in general when ever possible. He gives his time through the National Wild Turkey Foundation, The United Bowhunters of Pennsylvania and the National Rifle Association. As a former owner and guide for River Valley Outfitters, a former sister company to River Valley Game Calls where Rob pro staffs, he continues to promote hunting by guiding and teaching first time turkey hunters. Rob now heads up the Pro Staff for Enigma Camouflage, and previous held a position on Hoyt’s National Shooting Staff and currently HuntingNet.com where Rob moderates specializing in the bowhunting and technical archery forums. He’s had the opportunity to be published in articles, books and throughout the Internet. Rob also participates whenever time allows for the NWTF’s Jake’s programs.

His accomplishments with a bow include bull elk, countless whitetails, coyotes, black bear and numerous small game and upland birds. His passion has taken him across the country and Canada.

“I hope I can bring my passion to HuntingNet.com and share my experiences through my seasons and days a field. If there is anything I can do, for you, HuntingNet.com, it’s members or staff, all one has to do is contact me. Good Luck and Good Shooting.”
