Laden joined Bowhunter Magazine in 2016. Raised on his family farm in northern Missouri, he cut his teeth on bowhunting eastern turkeys, whitetail deer and a few small game species. Since leaving the small town to pursue Undergraduate and Graduate degrees in Business and Business Administration, his education and passion have driven a career of 10+ years in the outdoor industry with companies such as Remington, Zeiss Sports Optics, Bowtech and now Bowhunter Magazine. Laden is an avid outdoorsman that thrives on pursuing game with his bow, successfully harvesting several North American species. He has been lucky enough to move back to small-town Northeast Missouri, where he and his wife, Jordan, are raising their two boys, Stone and Wilder.
