HTF Meteorologists and Contributors

Austin Dixon, Bowhunter, B.S. Meteorology


Hi, my name is Austin Dixon and I am the primary contributor to Hunt The Front. I am currently working on my Master’s degree in Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. My primary research as a Master’s student involves using the Blue Waters supercomputer to perform high-resolution simulations of severe thunderstorms and tornadoes. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Meteorology from the University of Oklahoma in 2017. I have been deer hunting since I was 7 years old and was mostly a rifle hunter for many years but have more recently become primarily a bowhunter. I am originally from Oklahoma and grew up doing most of my hunting there, but I bowhunt lots of public land in southern Wisconsin now that I live here.

When I am not hunting I love spending time with my fiance (who often hunts with me), storm chasing, playing golf, playing guitar, fishing, photography, just to name a few.

I am very passionate about both weather and deer hunting and I love sharing my passions with others. I hope to achieve that with this site and hopefully provide something useful to you. Thank you for visiting Hunt The Front!

Good luck.
