The Wild Life
If luck is a combination of hard work and opportunity, then Lee and Tiffany have found it. Through blood, sweat and tears they worked day and night to establish their farms and strict whitetail management program. “Let them go, Let them grow” is a phrase they have learned to live by and is quickly becoming a household hunting term. As Lee believes: “To get a great buck, you have to pass on a really good buck. It’s not about the size of a buck’s rack, but rather the age of the deer when it comes to managing your herd.”
It all began with love at first “shot”. As an airline attendant, Tiffany got to travel the world, but longed to take her love of the outdoors to the next level. When she wanted to try shooting sports, she turned to Lee, who was following his passion and working at an archery shop, as well as pursuing a career as a chemical engineer. As it turns out, Tiffany was a natural, which prompted Lee to combine his two pursuits and after getting married in 2003, they moved to Iowa to begin their land management and whitetail dreams.
