Rod hails from the north-central region of Pennsylvania, where his deep-rooted passion for the outdoors first took hold. His father initiated him into the world of hunting, fishing, and trapping from an early age. Much like many outdoors enthusiasts, Rod attributes his love for the land and pursuit of whitetail deer to his father's guidance. Rod is a proud United States Army Veteran, having served on active duty for nearly 29 years. Following a successful military career, he retired with the distinguished rank of Command Sergeant Major. Two principles he holds dear and close to his heart are integrity and faith, which serve not only as the bedrock of his expertise as a Land Specialist but also as the guiding principles in his life. Rod and his family, including his wife, Shelly, and their two daughters, make their home in Central Illinois. He possesses a profound understanding of the significance of every land purchase and is dedicated to ensuring your experience is a truly rewarding one.
