He graduated from Rogers Arkansas in 1973 where he started working in construction for several years which led to working for the Missouri Department of Transportation, where he retired early in 2010. Mark has been married to Vicki for 10 years and together they have a son, two daughters, seven grandchildren and one great grandson. Mark currently has a small lawn mowing business which provides him the opportunity to pursue his love for the outdoors. Mark met CTO Missouri State Director, Kirk Bouse at his church and began volunteering for CTO in 2015. Then in January of 2018 Mark felt the call to become the new CTO Missouri Northside Chapter leader.

    Spring turkey hunt in at the infamous Sarcoxie base camp. The turkeys are gobbling and ready for action. 

    Bring a sleeping bag and the normal camp toiletries for staying in a nice bunk house. 

    Cammo is a great choice for hunting clothing. If you don't have it let me know, I have several pieces I can loan out.

    We also have shotguns if needed. Let me know asap if you need one.

    If you bring your own gun please be sure it has a "full choke" or a "turkey choke". You will also need a box of turkey load shotgun shells. 4 or 5 shot size work great.

    The main meals will be provided, including Friday night. Hunting snacks are a great idea if you need or want them.
