Throughout the years he has always  been affiliated with major outdoor manufacturers and promoted many of  their products in his endeavors.  Alex is arguably one of the best  whitetail and turkey hunters in the nation.  Alex, being the youngest  (at that time), was inducted into the National Outdoors Hall of Fame in  2007.

Alex continues to be aggressive in the  outdoor industry, making appearances for churches, schools, and many  other outdoor events, including major box stores.



Currently, Alex and his  family have started a new endeavor.  They have created a trademarked  name in the outdoor industry.  The name is “American Roots Outdoors TV”.   AROTV will depict and capture the reality side of hunting, fishing,  and the cultures of friends, faith, and heritages, as well as our  Constitutional rights.  AROTV is about “US”, every true outdoorsman or  woman, and American Christians.  Our motto is, “When your roots are deep  and strong, there is no reason to fear the wind”.
