Bill Winke's  Field Journal
Bio:
Bill Winke has been writing full-time for hunting magazines for 13 years.  He specializes in articles about hunting strategy, primarily whitetail deer.  Bill has hunted deer in sixteen different states and three Canadian provinces.  While hunting extensively in new settings each year, Bill has gained expertise in reading and interpreting topographical maps and aerial photos and deer sign. 

Bill Winke has also played a leading role in the management of thousands of acres of land for improved deer hunting.  These experiences have given Bill broad exposure to - and great appreciation for - the wonderful challenges that whitetails present.

Bill earned a degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Iowa in 1986 and now lives on a farm in southern with his wife Pam, their seven-year old daughter named Jordan and their five-year old son named Andrew.
