I have enjoyed the outdoors of South Texas for fifty years. Some of my very best memories are of family and friends teaching me to hunt and fish in this beautiful area with such abundant wildlife. Just as those who taught me, I also enjoy helping and teaching others about hunting and conservation. Whether it is on the Agape Ranch in Uvalde County, in the beautiful Texas Hill Country, or in deep South Texas, a hunt is best when it can be shared with those just learning the sport or with those that have limited opportunities to hunt. I am proud to be a part of the Alamo Chapter of SCI and its great mission, where I help lead the Hunter’s Education and Disabled Hunter and Conservation programs.
I moved to Texas in 1999 from South Louisiana. I’ve been hunting from an early age. I have had the opportunity to hunt Africa on two occasions. My first was after a church missions trip with my youngest son Joel. The second trip was a family event with my wife Diane, my oldest son John II and my wife’s brother and his wife, Wayne and Nancy Gates. I’m married to Diane since 1974, have 5 children and 13 grandchildren! I retired from the Insurance Industry after 35 years.
Alamo Chapter SCI gives me the opportunity to help others enjoy our Hunting heritage and freedoms!
I am a native-born Texan and veteran of the US Army who served during the late ‘60s. I spent neatly 40 years in the financial services industry, retiring in 2006. In addition to a great career, I’ve been blessed to have hunted in eight different countries and have taken over 75 species in my hunting career. I am a life member of Safari Club International, the Alamo SCI Chapter and of both Alaska SCI Chapters. I’m also a life member of the NRA and the Alaska Outdoor Council. I was a board member of the Kenai Peninsula Chapter and president of the Alaska Outdoor Council. My time of service to the Alamo Chapter is my way to “pay-it-forward”. Sharing the outdoors with, and teaching, kids, women, veterans, first responders and folks without other opportunities to enjoy the outdoors is something very important to me personally and to the Alamo Chapter as well.
I am a born and raised San Antonio native, a Texas A&M Graduate, and an avid outdoorsman. Over the last 28 years, I have developed a great respect for the outdoors. I aim to help others find the opportunities to experience Nature in all its entirety through the many great efforts of the Safari Club. I look forward to sharing stories and memories with all of our members and creating new ones in the future.
In 1974 I started Trophymaster Taxidermy and I continued it more or less full time in addition to my regular jobs for the next 35 years. I served in the Coast Guard Auxilary for 20 years. I have been involved in law enforcement for 30 years, having been a Deputy Marshall for the Village of Old Mill creek, a Lake County Marine Deputy Sherriff on Lake Michigan and beginning in 1990, served with the Illinois Conservation Police until my retirement as Captain and Region 2 commander in 2013.
In 2015 I moved back to Texas relocating to Corpus Christi. After 2 years, the humidity of the coast pushed us north where we now live in New Braunfels, Texas our forever home.
I’ve been an SCI member throughout my career as time, family and work permitted. I’ve been fortunate enough to hunt in Africa, Canada, Mexico, Argentina and the Western US. I have enjoyed hunting 4 legged critters, but am most happy with a shotgun in a field or a marsh. Through my work with the San Antonio Chapter, I hope to share my experiences with our youth and those who serve.

I developed my passion for the outdoors while hunting and fishing with my grandfather in south Texas. At the age of 14 I suffered a life altering injury which left me paralyzed and wheelchair bound. Not one to give up, I faced the challenge head on learning how to be independent once more. I have since received my bachelor’s degree in Communications, Master’s Degree in Business Management, built a successful career, and gone on countless outdoor adventures. Now after 20 years my primary focus is on helping to empower the disabled community through the healing powers of the outdoors.
I am a born and raised Texan who spent my adult life in Alaska. I am a 30+ year retired credit union employee, the last years as Senior Management. Although I no longer hunt I am a huge supporter of my husband’s love for hunting. We have traveled the world not only hunting participated in the humanitarian and very rewarding SCI Bell Family Blue Bag Program in several of the countries we’ve visited. I also try to visit the local schools and orphanages of the provinces we are hunting. I firmly believe in the mission of SCI and especially anything to do with the Youth hunting and Veteran opportunities.
If I can assist you in any way concerning the Alamo Chapter and SC International, please, do not hesitate to contact me.
