I was born and raised in Southwest Iowa on a small working rotational row crop farm. I've been fortunate enough to hunt all over the nation and complete multiple "slams" on our beautiful public lands and enjoy whitetail hunting in Southwest Iowa. Even though whitetail hunting in Iowa for myself seems to be a rarity now after starting an outfitting business. I've been a hunting guide in Texas, Nebraska, and Colorado for Elk, Bear, Mule Deer, Turkey, and Exotics. However, whitetail hunting is my true passion and I want to see individuals be successful when the come and hunt with Iowa Elite Outfitters. I believe I'm only successful when you're successful! During the "off" time I'm a wildlife researcher for different Universities and Wildlife departments across the nation. I received my Bachelor's Degree from Morningside College in Sioux City, Iowa in Agricultural Food Science with a Minor in Natural Resources and Conservation. My original plan was to go into Agronomy, but, after taking a job with Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife I decided I wanted to focus on wildlife and conservation.
