Troy grew up hunting and fishing around Southern and Central Ontario. Troy has been addicted to pursuing waterfowl for the past 25 years. It is a journey that has given him the opportunity to hunt throughout Canada and the United States.  It is an experience that has allowed him to hunt with some of the best in some of the worst conditions. Troy would like to thank the Good Lord for allowing us to do what we do, also his dad for introducing him to the outdoors, his mom for putting up with his dad and his beautiful wife and amazing daughters for putting up with his crazy waterfowl life, as well as all of our clients, friends, and landowners that have made this operation a success.
God Bless.
