Sam also enjoyed going on hunting trips some which included Texas and Canada. Fishing in Canada with his dad, uncles and brothers was a favorite pastime. Going up north to the hunting shack was a regular thing for Sam, Dad, brothers and friends. Watching Packer games and Badgers was a huge priority for him.
