An Austin native, Bryce spent much of his youth hunting and fishing the beautiful Texas Hill Country with family & friends. Along the way, he developed a passion for processing his own game meat, including the Texas tradition of making sausage. Today he's an Operations Manager for a leading custom home builder in the the Austin area. When he is not chasing down contractors, or whitetail deer, he is busy chasing his two young daughters around his house. He's had a passion for hunting exotics and big whitetails in Texas for many years. Now he is discovering the excitement of guiding hunters, new and old, in making memories in the outdoors.
Colby grew up in East Texas, learning to hunt with his dad and uncle. He took his first twelve point buck on family land in Oklahoma as a teenager, and has been hooked on hunting whitetail ever since. When the wind is in his favor, he loves to spot and stalk deer & pigs. A self-reliant outdoorsman, Colby has built his own guns, processes his own meat, and does his own European mounts. When not raising his two little girls or hunting, he also enjoys restoring old trucks. Meeting like-minded people who love the outdoors and helping them make memories has fueled Colby's passion for guiding.
