Hometown: Kent City, MI
Justin was born and raised in the farm country of Western Michigan. Although hunting and the outdoors wasn’t a familiar pastime with his family growing up, Justin naturally gravitated toward the forests and lakes near his home. At the age of 12, Justin explored an abandoned barn and found an old recurve bow. The next few weeks were spent reconditioning the bow and by the end of summer, Justin was simply hooked on archery and bowhunting in general. As time passed he became increasingly interested in filming his outdoor adventures. Within a few years, Justin was capturing footage for use in television and DVD’s throughout the outdoor industry. At the age of 28, DreamPoint Productions LLC was created. Justin’s love for the outdoors is easily seen through his productions. The entire team at DreamPoint Productions and Game of Inches is dedicated to allowing the viewer to “experience” the entire hunt through a unique and creative vision. Always showing raw emotion, successes, and failures, and the little things that we all appreciate as outdoorsmen, DreamPoint Productions has created a reputation for capturing some of the industry’s best footage. When Justin isn’t editing or spending time with his family, he can usually be found with his bow in his hand; elk, mule deer, and of course whitetails are among his favorite game to chase. Teaching kids and newcomers about the outdoors and staying in touch with fans are very important to Justin as well.
Favorite Sawyer Product and Why:
The full line of Sawyer Permethrin Insect repellents is one of the most amazing products I’ve been able to use in years. There is nothing better than treating my hunting apparel once with Sawyers Odorless Permethrin spray and hunting the rest of the season without worrying about ticks, mosquitoes or flies. Truly an amazing product for outdoorsmen of every kind.
Favorite Outdoor Location:
Nothing in the world beats the Rockies in mid-September. With bull elk in full rut and bugles echoing through the canyons… no place I’d rather be.
