Michael Leslie of Petersham, Massachusetts is the Mossy Oak Turkey/Whitetail Regional Pro Staff Manager for the New England States.
Mike’s hunting career has lead him to numerous amounts of Longbeards and Whitetail taken within New England. His love for chasing Whitetail Deer and Eastern Wild Turkeys with his bow and arrow is what Mike lives for when he’s not working as a local patrolman for the Town of Petersham.
Mike’s archery accomplishments have led to sponsorships by AEP Archery, Brunton Optics, C.C. Porter Release Aids, True Spot Scopes, and Mossy Oak to name a few. While competing all over New England as well as National and World competitions, Mike has won a large amount of NAA, NFAA and IBO tournaments. He claims his love for the outdoors grew for his desire to shoot his bow and has involved into a way of life.
Mike graduated from Unity College with a major in Conservation Law Enforcement and a minor in Wildlife in 2009. Mike has successfully shared his strong passion for hunting with his wife Tina and son Kyler; and will soon be welcoming another hunting member to the family. His goal is to pave the path for his family on how to be a devoted gamekeeper of the land and to share with them how to become an avid hunter and caretaker for the environment.
His love for the sport of hunting drives him to promote the outdoors too youth and newcomers, and to share what he believes to be the best gift given to us, Wildlife! To Mike, hunting is more than a passion, it is an obsession that he lives for 365 days a year.
