Jimmy Herman was bit by the hunting bug early in his life.  Growing up in West Central Wisconsin, Jimmy was always tagging along on his dad and brother's deer hunting adventures where he eagerly watched and learned.  Immediately after taking Hunters Safety, he was in the woods, gun or bow in hand chasing whitetails.  It wasn't just the desire to take a trophy buck home that was appealing.  It was the drive to learn how deer communicate, how they travel, how they allude hunters, how to listen for other animals reactions in the woods that were indicators of deer approaching.  It was more than the animals themselves.  It was just being in the outdoors; observing, growing with the crops, changing as much as a person as did the seasons themselves.  There is so much to appreciate outside the four walls of a person's home that most people will overlook and never experience because they are unaware.  There is so much life growing, changing, moving all around us while we are on this earth and just knowing that alone is at times as captivating as some of the trophy animals Jimmy has taken.   

The opportunities that Jimmy has had touring with Carrie Underwood has led him to meet numerous people in the hunting industry worldwide that heard his story and encouraged him to become more involved with hunting and conservation not only in the US, but worldwide.  Not only is he an avid whitetail hunter, Jimmy has also hunted a large number of North American big game such as elk, mule deer, antelope, moose, and black bear.   When Jimmy is not onstage he is in the gym training for rigorous mountain hunts, shooting his bow, and writing articles for hunting, music, and fitness publications across the globe.
