Being a Responsible Hunter

David Psimer is the owner and CEO of DP Builders, a multifamily housing and commercial property construction company in Tennessee. He takes fundamental responsibility for ensuring that the company finishes projects on time and within budget. When he’s not busy with work, David Psimer enjoys such activities as hunting.

Responsible hunters care for the environment and the game they hunt and are dedicated to protecting recreational areas and showing respect for their fellow hunters. They follow all safety guidelines for handling a gun and hunting, as well as the pertinent game laws. This involves staying up to date on hunting regulations to avoid breaking any laws and gathering specific dates for the different hunting seasons.

Since it is not uncommon for several hunters to prowl a recreational area at once, it’s important that no one shoots across roads or waterways, that all parties request permission from landowners before walking across private property, and that hunters only shoot when they are positive they have properly identified a target and are certain that the area surrounding and past the target is clear. Responsible hunters must also do their part in preserving the environment and are asked to always follow any signs or barriers and only travel on designated roads and trails, even if they are rough.

Showing respect to the game is another part of being responsible. Hunters should only fire when they know they can kill the animal with one shot and in the most humane and painless way possible. When choosing a target, hunters must be capable of moving the body, if successful in making the kill, and should be willing to eat the meat; if not personally, then by giving it to someone who will. Additionally, responsible hunters make sure that their target is able to run. If a kill is 100 percent guaranteed, then the hunt is considered unethical.


Golf Digest Articles Offers Recovery Shot Tips from the Professionals

A longtime resident of Tennessee, David Psimer has been the owner and CEO of DP Builders for more than two decades. In his free time, David Psimer enjoys engaging in a range of active pursuits, including golf.

Golf Digest recently issued an article with tips from some of the game’s top professional players on how to recover from a less-than-ideal shot. According to well-known English professional golfer Ian Poulter, playing out of deep rough requires that players hit down on the ball with a strong swing to power through the grass. Poulter states that players should position themselves a couple of inches further back from the ball than normal, place more weight on the front foot, and hinge the club rapidly during the backswing in order to hit down on the ball.

After a shot that lands in a deep bunker, South African golf professional, Louis Oosthuizen, recommends a straightforward grip adjustment to facilitate a high pop-up shot with a quick stop. Oosthuizen suggests weakening the right hand grip, leaving the left hand in a strong grip, and placing the ball slightly above center.

Popular Tourist Attractions in New Zealand

David Psimer, the CEO and owner of the commercial construction company DP Builders, in Gray, Tennessee, enjoys traveling the world when he has the chance. Over the years, David Psimer has visited Canada, various countries in Africa, and New Zealand.

New Zealand is widely known for its range of environments and terrains. This variety gives New Zealand a unique assortment of tourist attractions, including the following.

– Coromandel Peninsula: Arguably New Zealand’s favorite tourist destination, the Coromandel Peninsula offers outstanding views of the coast, a rainforest, and white and golden sand beaches. Visitors can engage in a huge array of activities on the peninsula, ranging from digging their own hot pool to taking a glass-bottom boat out to Cathedral Cove.

– Sky Tower: For tourists who enjoy more city-based activities, Sky Tower rises up 1,076 feet above New Zealand’s largest city, Auckland. It is the Southern Hemisphere’s tallest free-standing structure and allows visitors to see about 50 miles all around them. Sky Tower is also home to a revolving fine-dining restaurant.

– Fiordland National Park: Recognized as a World Heritage site, Fiordland National Park is the largest national park in the world. It includes everything from waterfalls and mountains to extensive rainforests, and park visitors can view some of the best landscapes New Zealand has to offer. Fiordland National Park is also home to Doubtful Sound and Milford Sound.

Developing a Good Golf Swing as a Beginner

Owner of DP Builders, David Psimer advises his project analysts and meets with investors and attorneys during the process of building multifamily homes and commercial properties. In his free time, David Psimer enjoys playing golf.

As a beginner, learning a proper golf swing is essential to developing and maintaining a good golf game. The first step of learning a good golf swing is the grip. Without mastering the grip, trying different swing techniques is not very helpful. There are three basic grip types: the baseball, the interlocking, and the overlapping. While the baseball grip simply involves holding the club like a baseball bat, the overlapping grip involves placing the pinky finger just over the index finger. Meanwhile, the interlocking grip, which is popular for players with smaller hands, locks the pinky between the middle and index fingers.

Posture is also an important part of the golf swing. A good stance balances your weight equally on both legs while your arms naturally hang down. Finally, the actual swing is important. There are several swing techniques that suit different body types, but at a basic level, they consist of moving the club back and carrying momentum forward by moving your upper body along with the swing. Rather than focusing on force, taking the swing calmly often results in a better hit on the ball. Also, some beginners may look at where they want the ball to go after being hit instead of looking at the ball, but this may cause you to miss entirely or hit the ball in the wrong spot.

Canadian Winter Travel Destinations

A construction company owner by profession, David Psimer enjoys traveling in his personal time. David Psimer has visited a number of the Canadian provinces over the years.

Although many people think of Canada as prohibitively cold in wintertime, both the natural beauty and the culture of the country make it an appealing destination even when the air is chilly. Skiers flock to Whistler in British Columbia, though the area’s resorts have begun to court non-skiers as well with activities such as dog sledding, snowmobiling, and ice climbing. Aspiring mushers may also experience dogsledding through Saskatchewan’s Sundogs Sled Excursions, Outdoor adventurers also enjoy ice walking in Alberta’s Johnston Canyon or at Prince Edward Island’s Brookvale Winter Activity Park.

Ice skaters from across the world have enjoyed gliding down the 7.8 kilometers of the Rideau Canal in Ottawa, which opens the waterway to skating in January and February. Skating along the world’s largest skateway, visitors can view such marvels of architecture as the Chateau Laurier hotel and the Canadian Parliament. The attraction also serves as the center of such celebrations as the annual Winterlude. Events like the Quebec Winter Carnival and the Niagara Icewine Festival in Ontario draw visitors from across the world as well, while those who prefer to stay indoors can nestle into the comforts of Cambridge, Ontario’s Langdon Hall or any one of Montreal’s world-class attractions.

Professional Golf – The Many Career Accomplishments of Billy Casper

An experienced executive in the construction industry, David Psimer serves as the owner and CEO of DP Builders, a construction company in Tennessee that builds commercial properties and multifamily housing. Outside of his professional endeavors, David Psimer enjoys spending time with family and engaging in various outdoor activities, such as golf.

Golf Digest recently issued an article highlighting the many career accomplishments of Billy Casper, a former professional golfer who passed away in early February. In recent media publications, Casper has been widely regarded as an underrated player, and the Golf Digest article reviews many of Casper’s most impressive golfing achievements, including his 51 PGA Tour titles. Only six other players in golfing history hold more titles, and golf’s current players are far from surpassing Casper’s record, with Phil Mickelson being the closest contender at 42 wins.

Not only did Casper win 51 PGA Tours, but three of those wins were majors championships. The Golf Digest article notes that just 13 other players have won more majors since Casper’s first win in 1959. In evidence of his enduring success, Casper also won one or more PGA Tour events for 16 consecutive years, a streak that is only surpassed by golfing legends Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus.

Best Time to Visit Alaska

Based in Tennessee, David Psimer owns and manages a construction firm called DP Builders, which builds commercial properties and multi-family housing. When he’s not working, David Psimer enjoys traveling and has visited Africa, the Canadian Provinces, New Zealand, and Alaska.

Alaska, the United States’ northernmost state, offers many attractions to travelers, especially outdoor enthusiasts. If you’re thinking about taking a trip to Alaska, you might want to take a number of factors into consideration while deciding when to visit. First of all, tourist season in Alaska is from mid-May to mid-September, and most tours operate during these months. This is the time of year when the days are longest, as well, and the sky stays bright most of the night. Summer also offers pleasant temperatures, with daytime highs between 60 and 80 degrees. The early summer is also slightly less rainy, with the chance of rain increasing as the summer goes on.

All in all, experts suggest that visitors plan a trip to Alaska between June 15 and July 15. However, if you go in the off-season, you might save on hotel and airfare.
