Outdoor Life: Tell us about your passion for hunting and the outdoors?
Brock Lesnar: I grew up on a dairy farm in Webster, South Dakota and there was just an abundance of wildlife on the farm. I guess I was just six or seven when I got my first gun—a Crosman air rifle. I pretty much tried to clean out the blackbird population on the farm. When I moved up to a Ruger .22, I spent a lot of afternoons, after doing chores, running around the countryside gopher hunting. Each year, between football and hunting, I couldn’t wait for fall.
