Bob McNitt has been an outdoor writer and editor for nearly four decades. Raised on an upstate New York farm, McNitt grew up hunting, fishing and trapping. Although he majored in Business, his minor was in Journalism, and that proved to be a blessing in disguise. His initial profession as a businessman and investment broker paid the bills , but his love of the outdoors drew him there at every chance and eventually motivated him to begin writing about his experiences there. Many of his features were published in major outdoor magazines and this led to him becoming the outdoor editor for the Norwich (NY) Evening Sun, a position he still holds today. During his career, McNitt has also been an editor for Northwoods Publishing, Petersen Publishing, emap-usa and Primedia. He's past president of the New York State Outdoor Writers Association, Inc., charter member of the Professional Outdoor Media Association, Inc. and an inductee of the New York State Outdoorsman Hall of Fame. McNitt is currently also contributing editor for Jordan Outdoor Enterprises, Ltd (Realtree Camo). McNitt and his wife Betty live in Norwich, N. Y.
