David Alan Woolsey was raised in Maryland, and began rifle shooting at the age of eleven. A few years later he added skeet to his shooting sports, as well as waterfowl hunting. At sixteen, black powder rifles and deer hunting expanded his pastimes, and he was a member of his high school rifle team. By the time he graduated from Walter Johnson Senior High School in 1981, he had successfully hunted deer, waterfowl, forest game, as well as upland birds.

After graduation from Marquette University in 1985, he was commissioned as a 2nd Lieutenant in the United States Marine Corps, and attended The Basic School and The Infantry Officer Course, in Quantico, VA.

While serving in the 2nd Marine Division, he served in the 3rd Battalion, 6th Marine Regiment, as well as the 2nd Reconnaissance Battalion. While in several billets with these battalions, he was cross trained with numerous firearms.

He left the Marines in 1989 to pursue a law enforcement career. Currently he is in his eighteenth year as a sworn officer, and is a detective assigned to the Major Crimes Division of the Montgomery County Police, Montgomery County Maryland.

Regularly volunteering his time to teach hunting and hunting safety for the Maryland Department of Natural Resources, he is a senior instructor as well as a certified black powder instructor.

He also volunteers his time to teach Colonial American History, as well as demonstrating Colonial arms and equipment. The locations where he demonstrates are historic sites such as Colonial Williamsburg in Williamsburg, VA, Mount Vernon, VA, Ft. Frederick State Park in Big Pool, MD, and Historic Jerusalem Mill Village in Bel Air, MD.

In possibly the only known situation in which firearms and alcohol properly intersect, Dave Woolsey is also the author of Libations of The Eighteenth Century, a manual for home-brewing beer and ale in the styles popular during the Revolutionary War.
