A love of hunting and fishing brought Mike Okuley to Bedford County.
Okuley was invited by a friend, a retired state trooper, to experience local deer hunting during black powder season.
“My first hunting experience in Bedford County was on Sharp Top Mountain,” Okuley said. “That’s when I fell in love with Bedford County.”
After that, he made frequent hunting trips here. Then, he found some property which he bought in 1999.
