Meet the Legend
My Name is Greg “Butch” Bauer Jr and I am the Co-Founder of the Working Man BowHunter brand and team. I was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan and still call this great state my home. My passion for hunting started at a young age when my father would take me out hunting and where we spent hours together sitting in the hunting blind. My interest of watching the animals quickly turned into a passion for hunting. I shot my first buck at the age of 13 with a bow that I got as a birth day present and I instantly became hooked on bow hunting for life! Unfortunately, I had to take a 4-year break from hunting while I attended college and played four years for collegiate football, where I was a four-year starter.
After earning my undergraduate degree and graduating from college, I quickly picked back up my passion for bow hunting and started to travel across the Midwest on multiple whitetail hunts. My addiction and respect for deer hunting only grew stronger as each hunting trip came and I started to dream of filming my hunts.
Fast forward to 2019 and I am happily married and a proud father to a 5yr old son. I juggle my professional career in automotive manufacturing as a Sr. Manager in Stamping, family, house chores and my passion for hunting. I am an active member of North Macomb Sporstman Club, in-store Pro Staff for Jays Sporting Goods and passionate about filing hunts. I have been blessed to hunt and harvest 6 Canadian black bears, 1 Canadian Moose and 9 Pope & Young Whitetail from the Mid-West States. I am a Working Man BowHunter!
