Nick Larson is brand communications director at Northwoods Collective. He is also host and creator of the Project Upland podcast and a regular contributor to Project Upland Magazine. He lives with his wife, son and English setter in Duluth, Minnesota where he avidly pursues the outdoors with a passion. Naturally, his favorite pursuit is upland bird hunting. From the northern forests of the upper great lakes to the prairies of the west, he chases adventure across the uplands wherever his bird dog and the people he meets lead him. When he's not upland bird hunting, he truly enjoys time with his family, staying active, spending time at the cabin, shooting double guns and of course training bird dogs!
