Owners, operators, guides, etc... the list goes on. Because when you own a business and love what you do, there really isn't anything that you don't have your hands on! Hunting is our life and our passion, which is why we decided to dedicate our lives to Southern Whitetail Outfitters. There isn't anyone who wants you to tag out more than we do!

Hunter has over 20 years of whitetail hunting experience, harvesting his first deer at the ripe age of 4. Setting up properties specifically for deer and turkey hunting and understanding deer behavior is his forte. If his boots aren't on the ground in the woods, his nose is in a book reading and researching. 

Jenna grew up hunting deer & turkey and she is also the camp chef/manager of hospitality! She is known for her southern culinary taste and all home cooked meals. You can find more pictures of her creations on the Lodging page.
