Stephen Reed (Missouri)

Stephen Reed is an avid outdoorsman, hunter and gun maker. He is a 41 year old single parent with two sons and a passion for anything outdoors. Stephen was raised in the hardwoods of Southern Illinois, and now resides, with his son, in Missouri where they hunt and fish as much as possible.

Stephen relishes the chance to spend time in the woods no matter the season, or the weather. Whether it is spring turkey hunting, fall deer hunting, or winter duck and goose hunting he is always ready. His passions have taken him across the US chasing anything with fur, feathers, or antlers. He has hunted in several states including Missouri, Illinois, Kansas, and Colorado. He has harvested Whitetail Deer, Mule Deer, Turkey, Quail, Doves, Pheasants, Waterfowl, and Wild Boar. Stephen’s planned future hunts include: Boar in Texas, Elk in Colorado, and Black Bear somewhere.

Stephen loves teaching children and new hunters the joys the outdoors has to offer and the challenges and rewards that hunting can bring. Whether it’s with a bow or a gun, he loves the challenge of the hunt and the many memories from the field he has shared with friends and family. Stephen believes in passing the tradition of hunting from generation to generation. Stephen went to Rend Lake College in Ina, Illinois.
