About Samuel Ayres: https://thewildinitiative.com/
Samuel is a firm believer that being “country” is not defined by where you live or where you were born, but rather by how you live and where your heart truly lies. Although he spent his childhood as a suburban kid in Southern California, Samuel’s spirit was always drawn to the untamed beauty of nature. While he had his BB gun, a recurve bow, and even a Davey Crockett coonskin cap, activities like camping, fishing, and horseback riding were more of occasional adventures than daily experiences.
Fast forward to the present day, and Samuel has undergone a transformative journey. He has bid farewell to the bustling city streets and embraced the wilderness, equipped with his bow and rifle, immersing himself in the world of hunting and the great outdoors.

For Samuel, being “country” transcends geographical boundaries. It is a matter of where your heart lies and how you choose to live your life. He firmly believes that present circumstances should never limit one’s passions. Regardless of where you were born or where you currently reside, if your heart is drawn to the wilderness, then you embody the spirit of being “country.”
