Field Staff

Mike Jones

Mike was born and raised in Central Pennsylvania. At a young age, he developed a passion for the outdoors and as the years passed, his passion and knowledge for hunting and fishing grew into an obsession. Being a high school elite and D1 scholarship athlete in college, caused hunting and fishing to become limited to a few days a week but after suffering a career altering injury, his football career ended and he was able to devote more time to the outdoors again. From that moment, he switched gears, and hunting and fishing became his before and after work addiction. Wanting to take it to the next level, Mike purchased a camera and has been filming his outdoor experiences. Mike has harvested multiple pope and young whitetails, eastern turkeys and a Canadian black bear on camera that has aired on national television networks. When he is not spending time in the outdoors, Mike loves spending time with his wife, Katie and son, Christian.

Brandon Rapp

Born and raised in Lancaster County, Brandon has spent his life enjoying the adventure and tradition of hunting and fishing. Brandon devotes his time year round to the great outdoors where he can likely be found fishing, hunting, or scouting depending on the season. When he is not in the woods, he volunteers his time assisting various conservation organizations in preserving public lands throughout Pennsylvania. He is passionate about volunteering his free time in hopes to be able to pass these conservation’s on to future generations for them to be able to keep the hunting and fishing traditions alive!

Rick McFarlane

Rick Macfarlane is an avid outdoorsman that resides in the state of Pennsylvania during the off season. Rick was brought up with a strong hunting heritage from a young age.  Ricks passion of waterfowl hunting grew strong at a young age. Rick expanded his love for waterfowl hunting by purchasing a four legged hunting companion named STORM. Rick got involved with the local hunting retriever clubs and began to play the hunt test game for a few years. Ricks passion for hunting  landed him several jobs in the hunting industry. This gave Rick the opportunity to travel the U.S and Canada hunting and exchanging hunting stories with the best in the business. Rick introduced his son Jordon and daughter Morgan into the hunting lifestyle at an early age. At a young age Jordon and Morgan got to experience some of the best turkey and waterfowl hunting there is . Rick has been involved in several organizations that give back to the hunting community. Rick has worked with several hunting companies in the outdoor industry . He has done product development and testing, sales, pro staff management, filming, seminars and events for these companies. Rick believes that the future of our hunting heritage is in the hands of the young kids of today. He believes in getting the kids outdoors and introducing them to our passion and lifestyle. If we as hunters don’t do it our heritage of the outdoor lifestyle will be lost.

Ryan Watts

Ryan has been hunting since a very young age, brought up here in central Pennsylvania by a family that emphasized a passion and respect for the outdoors. He enjoys hunting Pennsylvania whitetail deer, bear, and turkeys from across the nation. Ryan’s greatest hunting passion however, is waterfowl. The excitement that comes with watching birds land in your carefully laid decoy set, the camaraderie in the blind, and continuous-action nature of waterfowl hunting makes it second to none. When he isn’t hunting or scouting, Ryan is spending time with his wife and son, excited to share this hunting tradition with a family of his own.
