Ben was born in Georgia and grew up in Alabama where his appreciation and enthusiasm for the outdoors started with a dove hunt on public land while in elementary school. He then grew a passion for deer and turkey hunting in middle and high school. While earning a Wildlife Sciences degree at Auburn University, he worked his way through school as a trapper and animal control manager for the USDA Wildlife Services.
Upon graduating in 2007, his first job was a Wildlife Biologist and Forester for a commercial hunting plantation in south Alabama. Ben now lives in Tyler, TX wanting to help others locate and invest in Texas hunting and recreational property or their dream ranch so they can enjoy and share the outdoors with their family and friends.
