About Bill Bernhardt

I started camping at age three and hunting and fly fishing at age eight and thus, I was practically raised in the outdoors. Consequently, due to my love of the outdoors, I have spent the intervening years collecting both knowledge about, and experience with, both firearms and the various game species that I hunt and thus, I now have considerable expertise on the subjects of firearms, reloading and, hunting and, I am intimately familiar with both ballistics and optics. Furthermore, I am a professional outdoor author who has written and published nine books (https://www.amazon.com/-/e/B00MQ99ZPE); one of which is a comprehensive guide to concealed carry. Plus, I also have a portfolio of over 1,500 articles on various outdoor topics and, I have contributed to American Outdoors magazine, Surplus Today magazine and, Southern Trout fly fishing eZine as well as numerous well-known outdoor websites.
