Brian Brew/ProStaff

Brian is owner and operator of Wild Wings Taxidermy in Middle Tennessee.  Waterfowl and turkey have always fascinated him, so he decided when learning the taxidermy trade to only specialize in birds.  He has been  doing taxidermy for well over 20 years now.  Along with knowing the trade of taxidermy , he has both an undergrad and Masters degree in wildlife biology.  He grew up in west Tennessee hunting everything from bullfrogs to deer.  About the time he turned 16 he was introduced to waterfowl and turkey and that's where his addiction begin.  He has been from coast to coast multiple times chasing waterfowl, and covers some serious ground during turkey season.  He is happily married to a very understanding wife and has two little boys.

Justin Crouse/ProStaff

Just was born and raised in Henderson, TN.  Started hunting with his dad at an early age, he killed his first deer when he was 8 years old.  He also spent his time as a kid hunting doves, rabbit, coons, and just about anything that walks.  He spends numerous hours scouting for the perfect deer, although he loves to deer hunt, nothing compares to his passion for waterfowl hunting.  He grew up hunting the Forked Deer and Hatchie river bottoms, and also the Tennessee river back waters.  He spends most of his season hunting ducks on public land, which requires endless hours of scouting, in search of where the ducks want to be.  He enjoys everything about being in the outdoors and introducing new people to the sport of hunting.

Jeremy Leyhue/ProStaff

Jeremy was born and raised hunting and fishing on the banks of the Obion river system in west Tennessee.  At an early age his father was taking him on hunting and fishing adventures from the Tennessee river to the mighty Mississippi.  To say his father lit a fire in him for waterfowl hunting is a huge understatement.  Jeremy has now hunted all across the US and has chased waterfowl in 3 different countries.  He is now trying to build the same love for the sport in the hearts of his own two children by taking them on their own hunting and fishing adventures every chance he gets.

David King/Co-Owner

David was born and raised in Henderson, TN.  He started hunting and fishing at a very young age.  Growing up in west Tennessee, he hunted deer, dove, quail, turkey, and squirrel.  But it wasn't until later in life that he came to know his real passion "hunting waterfowl".  It took one trip to a duck blind, and he was hooked.  Now all other hunting takes a back seat to waterfowl hunting.  Hunting waterfowl has introduced him to lots of new places, friends, and a greater respect for hunting in God's country.

Brian  was born and raised in west Tennessee.  Brian had the love of hunting instilled in him at an early age by his dad and granddad.  Brian is an avid hunter of all game.  So no matter what hunting season it is, you will find Brian taking in every ounce the outdoors has to offer.

Chase Kohl/ProStaff

Chase started hunting as a young boy with his dad.  He cut his teeth hunting deer on the family farm and killed his first deer, a buck at the age of 12.  He has hunted just about everything that is legal to hunt from coons, hogs, deer, and birds.  He really enjoys deer hunting, but even more so he loves to chase

those thunder chickens come spring.  There is just something about an ole dominate long beard hammering in your face at 15 yards that makes the ole 12 gauge want to bark.  His real passion started in his pre-teen years when his dad took him on his first hunt and he killed his first duck a wood duck.  He chases duck and geese all over his home state of South Carolina and has hunted a lot of God's country from TN, AR, OH, to MO and hopes to keep adding to that list!
