Travis Smith



My first waterfowl hunt at the age of 6 was with my father (Russ) & the Command Master Chief (Bulldog) from Fallon, NV. Bulldog put me on his shoulders with a decoy pack on his back and out in the pond we went. My dad handed me his shotgun and said “Just Shoot It”… From that minute forward, waterfowl hunting has been second to only my family. I’m thankful for the support of my wife and 2 children, who understand my undying passion for the sport and my passion to give back to the brave Combat Veterans of the United States Armed Forces.

In my 25 years of waterfowl hunting, I have been fortunate in the opportunities that have been presented to me. I’ve developed lifelong friendships and memories that cannot be replaced. 


Russ Smith


Hello all, I am Russ. I have been hunting waterfowl for over 40 years now. 30 years of it I have been married to my beautiful bride Darla. I would like to "Thank" her for putting up with my waterfowl passion for all these years. To me waterfowl hunting is relaxing. Its time to forget about the world's problems. It does not matter if it 60 degrees or 20 below, all the same to me. I have had 3 water dogs in this time, Chessie 13 years (Chesapeake), Tugg 12 years (black lab) and my buddy "Roc" (yellow lab). Roc is currently getting his tune up at "Rocking M Kennels" and will be competing in AKC senior hunt tests soon. We are a military family as well. I am Navy retired service-connected disabled. Travis is in the Coast Guard, Trevor is in the Navy, Taren is finding his way. If you find that you cannot go waterfowl hunting because of limitations give us a call. I bet if there is a will there is a way to get you out there. Our payment is the smiles, laughter and new friends we are about to meet.

Hello, my name is Joe, I am a machinist by day and a passionate waterfowl and big game hunter the rest of the time. With family, friends and an amazingly supportive wife it has become a life style for my family to live an outdoorsy lifestyle while reaping the award of some of natures most precious table fare. While I love elk and deer hunting… Waterfowl hunting is above all to me in the great outdoors. To me it is like a game of chess, the strategy of the game (waterfowl hunting) is so addicting! So many variables have to go right to fool mother nature, but when it all works out it can bring some of the most fascinating sights a person can witness. Fooling monster flocks of cacklers is my favorite, especially in an off field that they are trafficking over. When it all works out and that tornado starts spinning down into the spread is when I know that we won for the day, the jaw dropping looks on everyone’s face of “wow” is the reward I love the most. Though I did not serve in the military, it brings me great pleasure to be on this awesome team to help give back to the great men and women who have sacrificed so much for all of us.
