Meet Gardner Douglas, the 6th Greatest Shucker in the USA

Meet Gardner Douglas, the 6th Greatest Shucker in the USA

I am honored to share the story of Gardner Douglas, a US Vet and the 6th greatest shucker in the nation. Every journey sharing these stories is a personal one for me - Gardner is from the Chincoteague area in Virginia, which is one of my favorite places to visit on earth, and close to my roots. When we connected, I mentioned that this blog is my "side hustle" and he said, "haha that's the shore in you." Yeah, I can be proud of that. :)

Gardner, inspired by his Father, Sam Fisher (Sam, Sam the Shucking Man) grew up honing the skills of the shuck. I could tell you his story but why write it, when you could watch it through video? Give it a view, share it with friends, and follow Gardner's journey on Instagram at @s.s.shucking

Gardner is also looking into a potential Podcast down the road, so make sure you keep up to date on his plans!
