His outdoor passion has carried over into a very reputable guide service in Southern Iowa and North West Missouri chasing big whitetails, spring snow geese, and wild turkeys. Gabe's knowledge of the area as well as his understanding of the habitat it takes to grow and hold big whitetails has made him one of the leading recreational land specialists in the area.
3rd Place Champion for 2011, Rich Baugh. The experience of owning, managing, and hunting his own property was a dream come true for Rich and he developed a passion for land ownership and management. In 2006, his passion for hunting land and monster bucks led Rich and his family to relocate in southeast Iowa to focus on selling recreational property. Rich's hunting background and land management experience have equipped him to help buyers find the right farm for them.
Top Rookie for 2011, Phil Brown. Phil caught the fever for the outdoors early in life and private land management quickly turned into his passion. His current farm in Northeast Missouri is a virtual laboratory of habitat improvement and he welcomes the opportunity to compare notes on successful land management practices. With over 20 years in the field of commercial printing and advertising, Phil has had the privilege of working with several companies in the outdoor industry and has taken his vast experience and focused it on helping connect his clients to the right ground for them.
Team Champions for 2011, Tom McFarlane and Todd Bigbee. A native of Minnesota, Tom McFarlane has been a dedicated outdoorsman all his life. He has hunted big game in 22 different states and provinces, of which 17 have been in search of whitetails. Tom has not only become an expert on whitetail behavior and habitat in the Midwest, but much of North America and now calls Kansas home. Growing up with a rich hunting heritage in Alabama, it was just natural for it to become a passion for Todd Bigbee. Todd started tagging along with his father chasing gobblers at the age of 5. By 10 years old he had become fascinated with whitetails. Leaving corporate America and moving to the heart of the great whitetail state of Kansas allowed Todd to connect with Tom and a winning team in land sales was formed.
