Kevin Eason

Kevin (AKA - Kdogg) is Chuck Walters younger brother.  Kevin has stated how lucky he is to have an influencial older brother who has led by example in the great outdoors. Keving was born and raised in Mount Clemens, Michigan and began hunting and fishing at the age of 18. It didn't take long for Kevin to be hooked on the sport of hunting and fishing.  As of the past 4 years, Kevin has succeeded in harvesting several monster Whitetail Deer due to his dedication, perserverance, and his mindful attention to detail.  Everyone at Sanctuary Outdoors says that Kevin's humor in unlike anything else as he has an unforgetable laugh!  When it comes to overseeing Sanctuary Outdoors, Kevin spends time assisting in each department which contributes to the fun atmosphere at Sancturary Outdoors; however, it does help when he harvests another one of his majestic Whitetails from year to year.  Kevin's favorite saying is "I would rather be lucky than good" or is that the other way around? Either way, stay tuned in to find out!

Jeff Kempf

Jeff has one of the most impressive Whitetail Deer game rooms we have ever seen.  We first met Jeff at a land posting party for the American Sprtsmans Club (now known as GOLS - Great Lakes Outdoor Sports) back in 2007. After an awesome conversation over some lunch we realized Jeff was an "elite" hunter as well as an avid fisherman.  Having hunted over 30 years, Jeff consistantly harvests trophey Whitetails year to year whether he is in Michigan, Ohio, or Illinois and still his passion for hunting is like his first time ever.  Jeff has a unique style of hunting by studying aerial photographs and identifying potential funnels to put himself right in big buck territory every time.  Jeff is also responsible for filming several of the videos that you see here on Sanctuary Outdoors as he loves to get behind the camera for his friends and youths; it's as though the camera is glued to his hand. Who films Jeff you ask? Well, Jeff films Jeff.  That's right, check out Jeff's video "Solo Mission" where he films himself harvesting a nice Ohio 10 point in early October.  This year Jeff promised the Sanctuary Outdoor pro staff team to let one of us get behind the camera and film him as he so generously does for everyone else.  You think he will stick to his promise?  Stay tuned in to find out in our upcoming 2012 season at Sanctuary Outdoors! More on Jeff...just click his name to view his amazing "What If" story; it's a must read!

Ross Smith

Ross (AKA - Rusty). We met Rusty a few years ago through his best friend and Sanctuary Outdoor pro staff member, Jeff Kempf, at his annual venison processing party and man are we pumped about having Rusty on the Sanctuary Outdoor team!  Rusty is not only a great hunter but he is an awesome fisherman. When you look up sportsman in the dictionary, Rusty's picture is there! He has a passion for hunting, fishing, and preparing excellent venison, which we all just simply love looking forward to every February.  His graciousness and generosity to welcome all sportsman and sportswomen to his circle of friends is what sets Rusty apart from most outdoorsmen.  He loves his family and friends and goes to all lengths to spread the fun! He even attracts little furry kritters like "kittens" out to his stand. Rusty also has a unique way of sleeping in his tree stand without falling out as featured in his 2010 Ohio hunt with guest speaker Safety Sally, you defintately need to check that video out (folks...do not try this in the woods unless you are Rusty). Whether he is harvesting a deer or hooking a bass you can be sure it will be entertaining! Click on Ross to find out more about how great this sportsman really is!

Dan Wimpari

With his family's roots being in the Keewenaw Peninsula of Michigan's U.P. - hunting has been in Dan's family for generations.  However, it wasn't until he had started his own family before Dan would get hooked on whitetail deer hunting.  On a trip to his in-laws in Hale, MI - Dan tasted marinated venison backstraps cooked on the grill.  After experiencing the amazing flavor and tender meat, his father in-law invited him to go hunting (and get his own meat).  The rest is history...

Now from early fall to the bitter cold of year-end, you will find Dan in the woods any chance he can get!

Cindy Walters

Cindy (AKA - Loo Hoo).  Ok...who doesn't love a new hunter?  We are so excited that Cindy Walters, Chuck Walters wife, has joined in on the outdoor fun! After many years of watching Chuck go off to hunt and fish, Cindy decided it is time that she learns how to hunt and she couldn't have a better mentor!  With her new Excaliber Crossbow in hand Cindy will be heading out to the field this year on her own to harvest the beloved Whitetail Deer!  She was able to get her feet wet last year on a few hunts during the Ohio gun season with husband Chuck and though she wasn't able to harvest a deer she had an absolute blast.  Yes...like many new hunters who learn from the best we all know that simply being outdoors during the hunting season is about enjoying nature, friends, and family. Cindy is a dedicated mother and a supportive wife, which helped Chuck to pursue his passion of hunting for so many years and now it is Cindy's turn.  We believe you will agree with us that she is an absolute sweetheart so stay tuned in to see Cindy harvest her first Whitetail Deer ever this fall!  More on Cindy?
