Jim “Ike” Eichinger
I have been hunting since 1980, bow hunting since 1997. Have harvested several deer and taking my very first bow Buck in 2001. I traveled to Colorado in 2008 and took my first Pope & Young Antelope with the bow. I currently represent Mossy Oak, PSE archery, Muzzy Broadheads and Bohning archery.
This past season I took the largest Buck I have ever seen in the wild, Setting up Mock scrapes using Kishel’s mock scrape kit, this buck stayed in the core area from early September right till opening morning of NY firearms season. Tending to the scrape and cameras only catching him at night. On opening day he came charging out a set of pines and stopped 20 yards from my stand. Truly the highlight of my hunting career to date.
My passion for the outdoors goes beyond hunting and am also a amateur wildlife photographer and receiving several 1st place awards including Pope & Young 1st place award at the annual banquet for Black and White photography. Looking forward to adding trapping to my resume this coming season.
It is with great pleasure to be a part of the Kishels team,
Thank you again
Husband and Wife Hunting and Fishing Team
Kim and Jim Skoczylas are from Sheldon, New York where they enjoy the outdoors together. Jim began hunting and fishing as a child in the woods and on the waters of Western New York, with his grandfather and father. When Jim met Kim in April of 2004, Jim wanted to share his passion for the outdoors with her. Over the past ten years Jim has taught Kim how to enjoy the outdoors, by teaching her to hunt, fish and snowmobile. Kim has since become as passionate about the outdoors as Jim.
Kim and Jim were married on the shores of Lake Erie’s Eastern Basin in September 2009 overlooking their favorite walleye fishing grounds. In 2011 Jim decided to take his enthusiasm for fishing to the next level and obtained his Charter Captains License. Since then, Jim and his first mate Kim, spend their summers chartering on the Eastern Basin of Lake Erie aboard their 27’ Baha Cruiser, running Ultimate Adventure Sport fishing. While out running charters, they enjoy teaching their clients about the game changing products to successfully catch Walleye and Perch. Ultimate Adventure Sportfishing donates many volunteer hours to several local charities.
Jim and Kim led their tournament team to victory at the 2012 Amaracan Walleye Classic Championship out of Dunkirk Harbor with a record breaking weight of 80.30lbs for 10 fish. They also led their tournament team to victory at the 2013 Sunset Bay Shoot Out for the heaviest Walleye division, with fish weighing at 10.93lbs.
When the leaves start to change they trade in their fishing rods for hunting equipment, where they enjoy pursuing small and big game alike with their family and friends. On and off the field they are always willing to help fellow sportsmen and women learn new techniques and products to pursue their trophies.
As the year moves on and the snow starts to fly you will find them out on the local snowmobile trails of WNY.
Currently Kim and Jim are pro-staffing for Kishel’s Quality Animal Scents & Lures, Inc. and PBO TV. While pro-staffing for these companies Jim has conducted many seminars at local fishing clubs and outdoor shows. Kim and Jim are also active members of the Southtowns Walleye Association and Safari Club International.
In 2014 the Jim and Kim, started Ultimate Outdoors of WNY, to take their passions to a new level. Ultimate Outdoors of WNY is committed to offering and promoting products that have been proven over the years. The company also is always looking for gaming changing products to offer to their customers to change the way they enjoy the outdoors. They are excited to be representing and offering Kishel’s full line of products.
“Please remember to take a kid out hunting and fishing. They are our future sportsmen!”
