Working along with his father, Dave Bultman, they spend every chance they get working and playing in the natural splendor of the Door Peninsula. He also helps landowners maintain and enhance their native landscapes with Restored Door Ecological Services and serves on the Niagara Escarpment Network (NERN) steering committee.

Bultman currently resides with his family in Baileys Harbor, where he serves as a firefighter and first responder and operates his small business in addition to spare-time cave exploring.
