Tim PadenTim Paden

Oxford, NY

From the time he was a young boy, Tim has had an overwhelming passion for the outdoors.  He started hunting at the legal age of 14 in Central NY where he was born and raised.  A self-taught archer and turkey hunter (because no one in his family did either), he has achieved considerable success despite that fact. Since the time Tim called in and shot his first turkey, a mature gobbler at the age of 15, he has been hooked on chasing Toms.  Tim has had the good fortune of harvesting over 75 long beards in his home state.  A few of these are recognized in the NWTF records.

In addition to being a passionate turkey hunter, Tim is also an avid bow hunter and successful competitive archer.  Tim is married to his beautiful wife, Stephanie and is the proud father of two boys, Christian and Bennett.  His own competitive shooting has been put on the back burner to coach his young sons in their quest to experience high levels of success of their own… and they are well on their way with countless local wins, State championship titles and top 5 World Championship finishes.

Tim has played an integral role in developing LOD (Living Our Dream) Outdoors along with co-founder Mason Willis.  Together they have created an outdoor group dedicated to sharing their passion and knowledge of our sport with everyone they come in contact with, and to pass on our hunting heritage to future generations.  His go to calls are the Yellow Venom and the Legend Glass.
