Dick grew up in Shelby county Ohio and spent many of his formative years with his paternal grandmother. Dick is a mixed blood of Lakota/Scot descent. His grandmother was Oglala/Sihasapa Lakota and was from the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota.

In addition to bowhunting, Dick’s other passion is writing. Dick has completed a work of fiction titled In Black And White, about the experiences of two soldiers, one black and the other white, in Viet Nam. Dick has written a novella called Wanikiya that deals with the spirituality of the Lakota Indians. He has also authored a humor book titled Almost Flying, dealing with the zany sport of racing pigeons.

Dick wrote a monthly by-line for National Bowhunter and Western Bowhunter magazines for 15 years. He edited a book titled Blood Trails for friend and rock star Ted Nugent. He has wriiten features for hunting magazines including Adventure Outdoors and US Archer, produced a television series and speaks at hunting-related venues.
