My name is Jason Tome, and I am the founder of Jason Tome Outdoors (no surprise there). I am an avid outdoorsman and hunter. I started this blog because I wanted to share my outdoor experiences with those interested in the outdoors and to inspire you to take action from the content I’m creating.
After shooting small bucks for the first few years of my hunting career, I decided to challenge myself and hold out for bigger bucks. Since then I’ve spent many years in frustration, eating tags, and never even laid eyes on a big buck. I continued to work harder still with little results, but I wasn’t about to give up. This frustration lit a fire which turned into a passion and obsession.
Although I still have a lot to learn I have started to see some success. Being able to outsmart mature bucks is no easy task and is why I find the chase so compelling and why it is so gratifying when I’m finally successful, I’m sure many of you can relate.
As a kid, I spent a lot of time outdoors hunting, fishing, and camping with family and friends. I still do these things today. Through these experiences, I recognized the value and importance of the outdoors. The responsibility of contributing to the environment has become increasingly important to me. I wanted to give back so that future generations could experience what I’ve had. I knew that a career geared towards wildlife, restoration, and conservation would give me great satisfaction and would be something I would personally enjoy. This led me to pursue a B.S. in the Wildlife Ecology program at the University of Maine.
I have worked for U.S. Fish and Wildlife conducting seabird research, the University of Maine collecting data on various fish and insect species, and a microbiology lab performing diagnostic and regulatory testing on all finfish, shellfish, and crustacean species. Currently, I’m employed as an Environmental Consultant doing a range of projects which consist of wetland delineations, habitat restoration, forestry, and surveying.
