Trevor was fortunate enough to grow up in a small Utah town with 100’s of acres of prime open land in his backyard. Deer, foxes, coyotes, squirrels, pheasants, skunks, and many more animals also called this place home. The land was a winter range for monster bucks. His days were spent after school hiking in the foothills and exploring with his black lab. Growing up he had the opportunity to partner with Fish and Game efforts to reduce deer poaching on the winter range, raise pheasants and chuckers to be release into the wild, and monitor the Rocky Mountain Goat population. Today, this land is covered with massive homes and no longer habitat for wildlife. His hobbies included hunting, fishing, skiing, and mountain biking with his grandpas, uncles, parents, and siblings all over the Western United States and British Columbia. To him, the outdoors are a place to unplug from his corporate tech job and connect with family and friends.
Sarah grew up in Dubai where her dad was responsible for wildlife management and conservation of endangered species. She loves animals and is a proponent of balancing smart growth with preservation of animal habitat. Her hobbies encompass cooking (including Trevor’s game harvests), gardening, traveling, and scrapbooking those memories. As a mother of three, she believes family time enjoyed in the outdoors is everything
Why did we start?
I look at the taxidermy mounts on my wall with fond memories. The little details I thought I would never forget, are starting to slip my memory. I look at all the amazing mounts in my father’s home and feel blessed to be part of most of the hunts. There are mounts passed down from my grandfather, where I wish I would have taken the time to write down the incredible stories while he was alive. There needs to be a way to capture these stories and keep them with the mount while the hunt is fresh on your mind. A way to preserve the stories and pass them down to generations. I don’t want my grandkids to inherit my trophy mounts and just see a head on the wall or look at a picture in a frame without getting the full story. I want them to know the risks taken, the passion of the hunt, determination required, and most of all the experience with those who were with me. There needs to be an easy way to ensure all outdoor adventures are archived and available. The solutions are here.
