Co-owner Ridge Rocker Turkey Calls
I was fortunate enough to be raised on a farm where I had the opportunity from a young age to hunt fish and trap, I spent most of my youth hunting squirrels, rabbits, frog gigging and running turtle lines. I started deer hunting with my bow at the age of 16 last year marked my 35th bow season in the woods of Kentucky in 1995 I went to big game guide school in Gunnison, Colorado. I spent a year there after returning home I started Turkey hunting and it turned into one of my biggest passions.
Today I am blessed to be part owner of a great turkey call company .I am also blessed to have a son that shares my passion and love of the outdoors. We deer hunt together in the fall we turkey hunt together in the spring we bowfish together in the summer what more could i ask for.
My name is Jarrad Brown. I live in Morehead, KY. I have been hunting since I was 8 and started turkey hunting at 12. My dad took me hunting when I was a kid but my uncle is the one that really taught me the most and started me on turkeys. I love to deer hunt just as much as the next guy but in my opinion there's nothing like an ol tom coming in to the call on a frosty morning. Im married with 3 kids, the oldest 2 are five (twins) and they love to squirrel hunt with me so needless to say I cant wait to share my passion of being in the outdoors with them as they grow.
Kevin can’t remember a time when the outdoors was not part of his live. Growing up with a very strong and close family in Oldham County Kentucky. His father had him in the outdoors for 30 of his 38 years teaching him to hunt and fish. He hopes to get his three daughters out and into the wildlife to share it with them. He plans to teach them to hunt just about any game anyone that anyone is ready to cook up. Kevin has a passion for duck,turkey,bow hunting and fishing.He is also learning filming and photographing for the outdoor life.
My name is Steven Roll I am 28yrs old I was born in Billings Mt. But currently live in Washington. Growing up i have learned to do it all. Hunt and fish, From catching trout in a creek to chasing elk in the deepest of the mountains. I have been turkey hunting since I was about 12 yrs old, I love chasing them with a shotgun or bow.
Growing up I spent more time in the woods and in the water than I did on concrete. My dad taught me to not only enjoy the outdoors but also to respect it and to give thanks for our harvests. I got my first gun when I was 12 years old, I single shot H&R Topper model .410. The next day we were off on my first rabbit hunt and I haven’t slowed down since. All though I grew up hunting it would be 33 years later before I got my first deer. An 11 point buck taken on opening day. The very next year I picked up bow hunting. 4 years a go I decided I wanted to get in on the spring action and taught myself how to turkey hunt. I was lucky enough to harvest a nice tom that first year and that only fueled my passion even more. Now I cant wait until spring when the fields start to turn green and the toms start their magical chorus for all the hens. It is my quest now to pass along the heritage and traditions of the outdoors to the next generation of hunters and conservationists.
I grew up the bootheel of Missouri and I now live in St. Louis area where I work as a cabinet finisher at a small plant in Fenton MO. I have been living here for the past 20 years with my wife, Sally. I started hunting when I was about 7 years old with my father, hunting small game, as I grew older I was self-taught hunting deer and turkey. And that's when my passion for the outdoors hit me. I have been hunting deer for almost 42 years and hunting turkey for at least 30+ years. My real passion is turkey hunting. I have taken several subspecies of turkey and I'm 1 bird away from my 1st grand slam. My passion in the outdoors has opened a lot of doors for me. I am currently part of the Mossy Oak prostaff, and part of IWOM prostaff. I have been filming hunts for the last 10 years which has also opened doors for myself. I have gained respect and trust from the companies I have represented and I'm also a member of the NWTF, and Quality Deer Management Association, and NRA member. I live everyday thinking of hunting and the outdoors.

Jason grew up in the outdoors thanks to his father Berman. Way back at the early age of 10 or so he began running the trap line with his Dad and was also introduced to small game hunting. He was hooked from there on.
Later in his teen years he was introduced to deer hunting that followed with the thrill and passion of chasing those Eastern Kentucky Long beards over the rolling hills of the Bluegrass. With his love and passion for the outdoors he began filming his hunts and has been addicted to the camera since then. Appearing on a few hunting DVD and TV shows over his career.
When Jason is not in the woods our on the water he is spending time with his family and always looking for opportunities to introducing others into the great outdoors.
“Capturing you hunt on film is a priceless gem and treasure you can reflect or share with others even year later, during my outdoor experiences I can say we so are blessed with the gift of its beauty and presence. My years of hunting and fishing in the outdoors have probably kept me out of trouble many, many, times, ;-).”
Mike Gullett grew up on a farm in Oldham County, Kentucky and began hunting when he was 8 years old. He shot his first limits of rabbits with his grandfather when he was 10 years old. Mike has hunted everything from rabbits, deer, turkey, dove, squirrels, duck, and geese.
In 1983, he went on his first duck hunting trip with his cousin Mark, and ever since then, he has had a passion for waterfowl hunting. In 1996, Mike went on his first turkey hunt, also with his cousin Mark, and doubled opening day. In April of 2000, Mike scored the state record non-typical tom with a score of 110 points. Mike's all time favorite hunting is now duck and goose.

My name is Jordan LeCompte and I’m from Taylorsville, KY. I was fortunate enough to grow up on the family farm allowing me to love the outdoors at a very young age. Over the years I’ve hunted just about every species there is to hunt. Although I didn’t start turkey hunting till about 5 years ago it came quickly to me that turkey hunting was a life long addiction after I harvested my very first long beard. Now I work a full time job and when I’m not at work you can find me hunting or on the water fishing and bowfishing.

My name is Joe Williams; aka "Cousin Joe", from Taylorsville, Ky. For 25 plus years....and still counting, I get my adrenaline pumping in our Great Outdoors; from strutting Toms of the spring, the bluegill fishing & camping in the summer, & up to my deer stand in the fall, I truly enjoy every aspect of the brotherhood & memories made along the way. Under the wings of two cousins & my uncle, the hunter/fisherman in me was born. In 2011, I married my best freind & favorite camping partner.

My name is Brandon Howard and I was born and raised in Tuscumbia Alabama. I started turkey hunting with my grandfather when I was around 5 years old. I was hooked on it. I always wanted to go. He called up alot of birds for me but I could never sit still enough to shoot one! I finally kill my first bird at age 13! Fast forward a few years to when im 16. I finally can drive! Im in the woods as much as I can be, teaching myself everything I can because my grandfather works on the road. I am now 20 years old, killed more turkeys than I can count, and helped several people kill there first birds. I just love being in the woods and listening to the world come alive.
Casey wethington im a hunting guide and a avid outdoorsman. I go from chasing turkeys in the spring to Bowfishing in the summer to deer in the fall and waterfowl in the winter.
I grew up in Mt. Washington, Ky. I started to hunt and fish at a young age and because of that I now have about 28 years of experience and wonderful memories with my friends and family.
My father first introduced me to hunting and we still hunt together as much as possible. In fact I don't think we've missed hunting together on opening day of turkey season since my first opening day. Hunting has been apart of our family for generations and I'm looking forward to carrying on that tradition with my two children.
For me hunting is always about the experience. Seeing something I've never seen or doing something I've never done. That is my call to the wild. Every day is a new adventure and a new chance to make long lasting memories.
Follow me on social media where I get to share my experiences and memories for everyone to see. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

I'm Jason Elmore. I live in Russellville, Kentucky with my family God has truly blessed me with. The outdoors have been a part of my life since a early age when I was old enough to tag along with my uncle deer hunting, chasing ducks and fishing with my dad. It's a blessing waking up everyday knowing I get to do the things I love. In the spring you'll find me setting next to a tree trying to convince that longbeard into gun range. When the winter rolls around I'll be chasing those ducks and geese. Nothing like spending time in God's outdoors with friends and family.

My name is Chuck DuPont and I am from Franklin, Massachusetts. I have been hunting since I was young and was introduced to hunting by my father. I have a teenage son which I spend a lot of time teaching him the ropes as my father taught me. I am a high school engineering teacher and from time to time you will find me in the woods with some of my graduates teaching them something new from fishing techniques to pheasant hunting, and everything in between including turkey hunting. I help train new hunters each year through the Massachusetts youth turkey learn to hunt program, and offer mentor hunts to these young hunters. I am currently the chapter president of the NWTF: Tri-County Strutters of Foxborough and serve on the Massachusetts State Board of the NWTF.

My name is Hunter Moates. I'm from central Alabama I'm 21 and have been hunting every since I was 3. I have been fortunate enough to hunt fro Alaska all the way to Texas and everywhere between. Turkey hunting has always been a passion of mine there's nothing better then a gobbling Tom and when you hunt as much as I do you want to team with the best in the business and to me that is Ridge Rocker
My name is Steven Tucker. I’m 35 years old and live in the small town of Hayden, Alabama. I wasn’t fortunate enough to grow up hunting like most people I know. The only person in my entire family that ever hunted was my grandad and he died before I was ever born. I would listen to stories from friends of trips they went on, deer they had killed and turkey they had chased. By the time I was older and had kids of my own, I knew it was something I wanted to be able to give my boys the opportunities to experience that I never did. I started out all on my own with advice from experiences hunters I knew, buying all the proper equipment, not having a clue what I was doing but knew where I wanted it to end up. I was also fortunate enough to have a nice piece of family land eat slap up with deer and turkey. I’ve learned a lot along the way. Experienced the highest of highs and lowest of lows when I comes to hunting. But it wasn’t till I heard that first turkey gobble early in the morning just at day break that I realized how much I would fall in love with turkey hunting!!! It’s like my heart just stopped literally. I had heard stories, but it’s not until you hear that bird for yourself for the first time that it all comes together for you. I’ve never looked back since and it’s a rush that just can’t be described with words. I look forward to being able to experience the same things with my boys and see their passion continue to grow. Hunting in general has changed for me from a hobby to a lifestyle in my family.
My name is Jason Dooge & I have lived in NW Indiana my entire life. I began to enjoy the outdoors and the hunting lifestyle as soon as I was able to walk through the woods with my dad. I love many types of hunting for several different species, but I'm plumb ate up with chasing big long beards in the spring & I'm one bird away from completing my World Slam of turkeys!! The time spent in the woods, always willing to learn something new & building relationships along the way are what makes our hunting experiences so much better for everyone involved! Best of luck to everyone afield & good hunting-
My name is Kenzie Taylor and I live in Madisonville Ky. I am 26 years old, a cardiac nurse, and I am still growing in the world of turkey hunting. I have grown substantially in turkey hunting since my first days with RidgeRocker and have became decent at calling turkeys. I am by no means a professional, but I feel pretty confident in the abilities I have developed over the years.
Growing with RidgeRocker has really improved my calling abilities I feel. The great products i am able to use all year from turkey calling, to buck grunting and even crow busting, RidgeRocker has me covered!
My favorite call to use is Ridge Rockers Mouth calls. They come in a tin can so you can keep them altogether, and they are so easy to use! The mouth calls feel more natural to me, but I'm not scared to get my braggin' glass out and throw the Dymond Wood Striker to it a few times! Be ready to Rock the Ridge this Season!

Married with two children and one granddaughter. Enjoy hunting deer, turkey, small game, and predator hunting. Also enjoy fishing and hiking. Pretty much just love anything involved with the outdoors. Very blessed and honored to be a part of the Ridge Rocker staff.
I am 43 and born and raised in NC Indiana. I have worked for the county government for 11 years now. At the age of 10 I was introduced rabbit and pheasant hunting by my father. I was quickly addicted to the outdoors and my love for the outdoors only grew over the years. My father was not a deer hunter or turkey hunter so when it came to this I was on my own. At 12 I arrowed my first deer and the passion for deer hunting took off!!! It wasn’t until I was 19 when I killed my first turkey. It took me a few years to learn how to consistently kill turkeys year after year but I’m pretty sure I have something figured out right now. I have 2 children, one of which loves the outdoors as much as his father and has been enjoying time in the outdoors since he was 3 and he started hunting with me when he was 5.5. He is now 14 and his accomplishments in the field are pretty amazing already! As for my 8yo daughter...... turkeys are pretty. Hunting is my passion as well as introducing anyone to the outdoors and helping friends and family fill a tag. Good luck to you all in seasons to come.
