Monte Miles

Founder-President Of Operations

I was born and raised in a small town in southeastern South Dakota. I have a degree in Wildlife and Fisheries Science from South Dakota State University. At a young age, I was taught about the do’s and don’ts of hunting by my father. I can still remember hunting for squirrels, rabbits, and birds in the backyard of my childhood home. At the age of 12 I went on my first “big game” hunt with my father. To this day, it is still one of my most memorable.

Curtis Larsen

VP of Operations

I am and always have been an avid outdoorsman. I grew up just north of Salt Lake City, Utah in a town called Centerville. I loved growing up in Utah because there were mountains everywhere for me to roam and explore. I learned at a young age the importance of conservation and good hunting ethics from my dad. He instilled in me the passion of hunting and what it takes to become great.
