Michael Mitrick grew up in Illinois, where his father introduced him to rabbit and pheasant hunting. He continued to hunt pheasants throughout his college years. When he moved to Pennsylvania in 1981, deer hunting quickly became his new passion. He has held a Pennsylvania hunting license every year since moving to the state.
Mitrick is a member of several sportsmen’s organizations including Starview Sportsmen’s Association, York Riflemen and S&M Hunting Lodge.
When he’s not enjoying the outdoors, Mitrick can be found working as an orthopedic surgeon at OSS Health in York, Pa.
In addition to hunting in Penn’s Woods, Mitrick has hunted and participated in outdoor recreational activities in several other states and countries.
