Buck Paradise Staff
Owner of Buck Paradise Outfitters
I was raised in the Paradise Hill area and grain and cattle farmed up until 2004. I have two sons Garet (22) and Ian (20). I started outfitting in 1997 and it grew fast and furious. I grain farm now over 3000 acres with our two sons. I love to hunt and that is what got me in the business. I have been fortunate to hunt Alaska, Saskatchewan, Quebec and hope to hunt other countrys, states and provinces in the future. I have made many friends in this wonderful business and hope to keep doing so for many years to come. Enjoy the rest of the staff gallery. Without these wonderful people we would not be able to make Buck Paradise the success that it is!
