About me

“I am an avid hunter, conservationist, and an outdoor professional. Each year I spend countless hours in the field hunting big game in my home state of Arizona and across the US. I especially enjoy hunting with my family and close friends. I have an undying passion for the preservation of our hunting heritage and ethical hunting practices. I enjoy sharing my outdoor passion with others through my writing and photography.”

Although born in Colorado, Darren Choate has lived in Arizona for over 40 years. The majority of his childhood years were spent as a young hunter growing up in the White Mountains of eastern Arizona.


My articles have appeared in Bowhunting WorldWhitetail JournalRocky Mountain Game & Fish, Quality Whitetails, Western Hunter, and of course, Western Whitetail to name a few.


I always have my camera in hand — searching for that ‘shot-of-a-lifetime.’ I enjoy capturing scenic, story-telling images, and then sharing those images with others in several mediums.
