Prostaff

Mikey Clark, Avid saltwater angler from Charleston, South Carolina

Everyone knows me as Mikey. Fly fishing is my passion with much love for the woods as  well. I am a firm believer in catch and release. I have been working with SCDNR and their fish tagging program for the last 4 years. I currently hold the Louisiana state record sheepshead on a fly rod at 9.88lbs. Although the woods and water are my obsession, my wife and kids come first.

 

 

Wendell Hershberger, South Carolina

'Sit right here on this stump', my dad told me as he handed me my 20ga, single shot. I was 12 years old and since that day I have been hooked on the outdoor life. I was born and raised in Abbeville SC, and trapped fox and coyotes for 10 years then fished and hunted the rest of the time. As I get older, the love of hunting does not diminish. Whether it's taking my kids to the pond to fish or spending a week in the Midwest whitetail hunting with my friends, it's a way of life. When not in a tree, you can find me building kitchen cabinets at our shop, fixing fence or working the cows on the farm. God has blessed me with three wonderful kids and a wife that also love the outdoors, and for this I am thankful.

   

 

Wesley and Lauren Southers, Northeast Georgia

Wesley grew up in Toccoa, Ga and Lauren moved to NE Georgia from Butler, Ga (Taylor County) about 14 years ago. We have two beautiful daughters, Peyton & Baylee. We hunt and fish as a family and enjoy every aspect of the Great Outdoors! We’re avid hunters of deer, turkey & waterfowl. In addition to that we thoroughly enjoy bow fishing as well!! If we’re not in the woods, or on the water we’re spending time with our family and friends! We feel blessed to be able to provide food for our family, while doing what we love!!

  

 

Alex Malcom, Northeast Georgia

I am an avid hunter who loves the outdoors. I enjoy hunting every type of bird, but ducks and geese are my favorite. There is nothing better than enjoying a sunrise over a decoy spread. When I'm not hunting, I enjoy spending time with my wife and watching Georgia football.

 

Jessica Zuppan, Northeast Georgia

My name is Jessica Zuppan and I am 24 years old. I’m from Habersham County in Northeast Georgia and I am a Certified Surgical Technologist in the Operating Room and an Exercise and Sport Science student. I am married with 2 dogs, 19 chickens, 1 duck, and 2 pigs. I grew up always being around deer hunting with my dad, brother, and uncles being hunters, but I didn’t really get into it until my late teens. I was the only girl in the family that really showed any interest in the outdoor lifestyle, so I wasn’t exactly taken seriously as a hunter. I shot my first buck at age 18 on my first solo hunt. But it wasn’t until I married the man of my dreams that hunting became a way of life for me. My husband really pushed me (currently still does) to improve my skills as a hunter. He introduced me to turkey hunting and I was immediately hooked. In addition to hunting deer and turkey, I hunt waterfowl, dove, rabbits, coyote, beaver, and fox. Hunting has single-handedly taught me more life lessons than any other experience. I am so thankful to live in a country where we have the freedom to hunt for food that God has provided for us.

   

 

John Smith, Northwest Alabama

I’m 22 years old from Alabama. I am an active Outdoorsman/Gamekeeper that loves hunting and fishing more than anything.

  

 

Katie Morgan, Georgia

Hey y'all, my name is Katie. I'm 25 years old and have my Bachelors degree in History from Clemson University. I grew up hunting and fishing. My dad was an avid offshore fisherman so he fueled my love of the water. I started bow hunting about 3 years ago and spend most of my time with that. I have a black lab named Maggie. She is our dove and duck dog. I also have 5 chickens. I love being outside with Mags, my chickens, working in the garden, on the water and in the stand!

 

Johnathan Hulme, Northeast Georgia

I’m Johnathan Hulme. Raised in Elbert County, I’ve either been in the woods or on the water all my life. Hunting and fishing is my passion. There’s nothing I’d rather be doing.

  

 

 

Travis Haley, Northeast Georgia 

Travis has been an avid fisherman for many years. Born and raised in Georgia, Travis likes to spend his time fishing on the lake and spending time with his three daughters.

   

 

Will Townsend, Northeast Georgia

I’m a Sheriff’s Deputy from Northeast Georgia, but when I’m not fighting crime you can find me in the great outdoors!  Bow hunting is my true passion, but being in the duck blind comes in a close second.  When I’m not hunting I enjoy spending time with my wife, Lauren, and my three pups at home.

   

 

Bri Carr, Northeast Georgia

My name is Bri Carr and I am 21 years old and from Madison County, Ga! I am currently in school to become a Respiratory Therapist! I started going to sit in a stand with my dad around the age of three. I have so many memories of sitting in a stand with my dad and a deer or a turkey walking out in front of us and him letting me shoot at it with my B.B. gun, then us going tracking for blood. I knew then I had such a passion for hunting and wanted to continue to learn more!

  

 

Ryne Rankin, Northeast Georgia

Ryne is a former UGA Football Letterman (2013-2016) who majored in Agriculture Business as well as Agriculture Economics, but football and school isn’t the only thing he loves! He also is infatuated by the outdoors more than anything! His father Marc started taking him hunting/fishing ever since he could walk. Whether it was becoming a pro at snagging a few blue gills onto the dock with a Spider-Man pole or shooting his first deer ever with 410 single shot at the age of 7, he quickly fell in love with being an outdoorsman. If it has a pulse and can be hunted Ryne is probably out there trying to fill his tag! When Ryne isn’t hunting, he is enjoying the time well spent with his wife, Makenzie, and their Catahoula hunting dog, Grits.

  

 

Chad Payne, Georgia

Growing up as a son of a former police officer I was taught at a very young age about hunting, fishing, and the outdoor world.  Following in my late dads footsteps I was a police officer for over 21 years.  Retiring at an early age, I now work as Director of Security Operations for the Zac Brown Band traveling all over the world.  I have coached a travel baseball team for several years and just recently took a part time position as head JV coach at a local high school.  My off time is spent with my wife, Kara, and son, Wyatt.  Go Dawgs!

   

 

Daniel Phillips, Northeast Georgia

I currently work as a pharmacist in my hometown of Hartwell, Georgia and spend most of my time outside of work enjoying the great outdoors. My love for the outdoors started at a very early age tagging along with my grandaddy chasing longbeards all across Northeast Georgia. I love all types of hunting, but deer and turkey hunting are the two that stand out above the rest to me. My true passion is managing our farm to provide the best habitat and nutrition possible for a healthy deer herd and to grow big whitetail bucks. There is nothing more satisfying than harvesting a mature buck that you have watched grow over the past 3-5 years thanks to your hard work. I'm a member of the Quality Deer Management Association and strongly believe in their management practices. Let those young bucks grow! Go Dawgs!!

 

Shane Turpen, West Georgia

My name is Shane Turpen. I was born and raised in West Georgia and am an avid outdoorsman. My love for the outdoors started when I returned home from Afghanistan in 2013. My passion is chasing whitetails but I also enjoy hunting ducks in the Winter and turkey in the Spring. If I’m not hunting, I’m fishing. If I’m not hunting or fishing, I’m thinking about one or the other! I am thankful for every opportunity the Good Lord gives me to do what I love.

   

 

Tyler Goninen, Wisconsin 

My name is Tyler Goninen and I am from Blanchardville, Wisconsin (population 802). From an early age my dad would take me and my brother out into the fresh combined Ag fields and thick hardwoods for the annual Wisconsin gun season. That passion for chasing whitetails has grown into an obsession. Although whitetails are my favorite animal to chase, I can’t seem to keep myself out of the woods. From chasing spring gobblers, to making the trips out west for big game, the outdoors is where I feel most at home. This is truly a family sport and tradition that my son and daughter are already partial to.

I am an avid hunter and fisherman in the time I’m not working or at school. I love deer hunting in the Fall, and chasing long beards in the pines early Spring. When I’m not hunting you can find me on the lake catching big Spring time beaded bass or Summer time bass out deep. 

   

 

Tyler Carver, Suffolk Virginia

I grew up in Southeast Ohio, hunting and fishing every chance I was given. Whether it be with Friends or Dad, I found my passion for the outdoors. Joined the military when I was 19 and I’ve been stationed in Virginia ever since, still hunting and fishing each chance I get.

 Kevin Martin, Louisiana

I am 23 years old and live in Louisiana. My love for the Outdoors goes unmeasured. I do turnaround work in the refineries but when I'm not working you can find me in the deep southern marsh looking over a decoy spread or in the deep piney woods chasing whitetail! I love to deer and duck hunt. But nothing excites me more then hearing a turkey gobble on a cold spring morning!

    

 

Jacob Fife, Northeast Georgia

My name is Jacob Fife and I grew up in Hartwell, Ga. where being in the great outdoors was an everyday thing. I love anything outdoors whether it be hunting or fishing, but hunting for Waterfowl is my calling. I am a hardcore Waterfowler hunting in the harshest climates and doing whatever it takes to find the birds. Hunting for Waterfowl is in my blood and watching the sun rise every morning over a spread and watching God’s creation come to life each and every morning is a feeling like none other.

Taylor Elliott, West Central Georgia

I am 27 years old, born and raised in Manchester,Ga. I was introduced to the outdoors and hunting around the age of eight years old and have never turned back. I enjoy all aspects of it and the life lessons it brings. I hunt all year round whether it be turkeys in the Spring or whitetails in the Fall. You can also catch me in the dove field and in the duck swamps. I'm thankful for my friends and family that enjoy the outdoors almost as much as I do. There isn't a better feeling than sharing this way of life with others. It always puts a smile on my face to take my nephew and girlfriend into the woods and see them learning and developing a love for it as well.

Jessica Shipp, Texas

My name is Jessica Lane Shipp. I’m from the very northeast corner of the great state of Texas! I live on a small 2 acres surrounded by the piney woods far away from the city. We have 27 chickens, 2 cats and a dog. My boyfriend Earl, and I have a burning passion for the outdoors and everything that has to do with the outdoors. We are both avid bow hunters and also enjoy hunting other game and fishing. When it’s not deer season we have a huge garden and we fully believe growing your own food and knowing where your meat comes from is the way it should be. Nothing makes me feel more blessed than being able to harvest an animal that I know we will be able to eat for a long time!
