With a reputation as an editor and writer Steele knows his market intimately. He began shooting at the age of five and became a licensed hunter at the age of ten. He has actively participated in IPSC, Metallic Silhouette, 3-Gun and Cowboy Action Shooting, along with skeet, trap and sporting clays. His vocation as an outdoor journalist coincides with his avocation as a passionate outdoorsman who loves shooting, hunting, fishing, off-roading and horses. Competent in all shooting diciplines, Steele has hunted on four continents, taking sixty-two species of big game at last count.
An avid hunter and accomplished writer, David Draper has traveled the globe in search of good stories and good food, yet his roots remain firmly planted in the soil of his family’s farm on the High Plains of Nebraska. As a young man, his dreams were fueled by daily trips to the original Cabela’s retail store, which stood a short four blocks from his childhood home. The ensuing years spent chasing his passions for adventure and the outdoors have taken him from the shores of Africa’s Gambia River to Alaska’s Brooks Range. He has hunted birds and big-game on five of the seven continents.
A 20-year industry veteran, Draper has worked in communications, writing and editing roles for the biggest names in the industry. In addition to bylines in scores of publications, he also served as the editor for the hunting journals of Dick and Mary Cabela and contributed to several books on the outdoors. Draper is Editor-in-Chief of Petersen’s Hunting magazine, where he also writes the Fare Game column covering all aspects of processing and cooking wild game.
Kali Parmley is the Managing Editor of Petersen’s HUNTING magazine. Growing up in rural Ohio, Kali was an avid outdoor enthusiast, spending countless hours in the saddle camping along the trail with her horse, and watching her Grandfather raise and train English Setters. In her early 20s, she furthered her love of the outdoors and began her hunting career.
Kali has become an avid big game and bird hunter, focusing on do-it-yourself hunts on public land. After training her own Labrador Retriever, Lincoln, to hunt alongside her, Kali travels across the United States doing what she loves: chasing wild animals in wild places.
