Donnett's Skeetercreek Mississippi Moose is a Chesapeake Bay Retriever from a long line of champion dogs.  He is still learning but is always eager to get the job done and the more practice he gets the happier he is. Tom found out last December that Moose will gladly break ice to bring back fat ol' green head mallards!

Tom Wood


Tom was born and raised in Lanark county.  Now this married, father of two has passed on the values of outdoor recreation to his own children. Tom is a proud graduate of Sir Sandford Fleming College (Frost Campus) Fish & Wildlife Technician and Natural Resources Law.  An accomplished angler, hunter and archer, Tom took his first deer at age 16 with a bow and never looked back.  His first turkey was taken in 2004.  In the winter he enjoys taking the kids out to catch slab crappies through the ice in Lower Rideau Lake. Bowhunting deer has always been a passion on an individual level but he truly enjoys the teamwork involved for successful waterfowl hunting.  He loves seeing the anticipation on a fellow hunter's face as they watch a flock of Canada geese set into the frosty corn stubble or a big tom turkey fanned out just beyond the decoys. Hunting is more than a seasonal hobby for Tom and he looks forward to meeting new people and sharing the outdoor lifestyle 365 days a year.
