Dennis spent 28 years as a firefighter before retiring and contracting with the military as a paramedic 7 years ago.

While Dennis pursues everything he can in North America, his favorite game to chase is the wily Coues Deer of the Arizona Desert.

9 years ago Marc started his own painting company, so that he would have more time and resources to hunt each Fall. Since then, he’s been to Idaho each year to pursue elk, along with the periodic trip to Alaska (where he has a Brown Bear hunt booked for 2016). Not to take away from winning an Icon Pro 5200 with his Golden Ticket, but Marc is actually in the Bahamas getting married this week! Congratulations!
