Zack loved life, bow hunting was his passion. He loved to take his brother and Dad out hunting and and any others who could. He loved helping others tag a trophy almost as well as he loved to himself. Everyday was something with hunting, checking trail cams, planting a food plot, or sitting in a tree stand or blind with one of his hunting buddies. A special thank you to Todd and Pam Mahle, Sheriff Matt Lutz, and the entire Muskingum County Sheriff Department.
