David Healy

David HealyHealy, a serious bow hunter for the past 25 years, is vice-president and co-owner of The ScrapeFixs. He is a sports and outdoor enthusiast with a particular love for bow hunting, fly fishing, videography and hockey. Healy is also a principle in Healy-Holm Promotions, a successful promotional merchandise firm based in Minnesota with a roster of blue chip clients.

In his work providing promotional merchandise to corporations for their loyalty, recognition, and branding programs, Healy focused on custom materials for his clients. This knowledge was clearly on his mind when he and friend Brian Trachsel, ScrapeFix’s co-owner, designed a better product to determine wind conditions for hunting big game. Healy and Trachsel were not satisfied with the current items on the market. They wanted a product that clipped onto your binocular or belt loop so you would not have to dig into your pockets and a container that would not clog or harden in cold weather. A product was born.

When Scent Blocker asked Healy and Trachsel to come up with a scented wind checker to add to their line they knew they had their work cut out for them. After 3 years of field testing to prove the effectiveness, they knew these products were special.

Healy continues to enjoy his pursuit of the ultimate attractant, videography and his work with Healy-Holm Promotions.

Healy lives with his family in Orono, MN.[/one-half]
