Outside the Office
- Outside the office, Hunter is an avid outdoorsman with a deep passion for fishing and hunting. He enjoys spending as much time outdoors as possible. Away from the wilderness, Hunter enjoys playing the guitar and listening to music with friends. However, the most joyous part of his life is undoubtedly the time spent with his two children.
