Joe Shead is happiest playing outside. He began his journalism career in a cubicle, but decided he is claustrophobic. Since then, he has tromped around Alaska, “working” as a rafting guide on the Kenai River. A Wisconsin native, Joe was trapped in Minnesota during road construction and stuck around. Now living in Two Harbors, he is a freelance outdoor writer and fishing guide. Joe enjoys looking for shed antlers, hunting and dragging lures for long, fishless hours on Lake Superior.
