Come by and listen to stories about our public lands and waters by some of the regions finest Hunters and Anglers. We look forward to seeing you at this special event. Kevin Murphy has been described by Steven Rinella as the world's greatest small game hunter. Hailing just outside of Paducah Kentucky, Kevin is known for his love of hunting squirrels with his dogs, his engagement in hunter recruitment and a great understanding of the natural world he participates in. Gene Jensen, AKA Flukemaster, is a born and bred Georgia boy who grew up trout fishing under the tutelage of his father. As most freshwater anglers do, he was exposed to bass angling and forever hooked. Today he can be described as an avid bass angler and, at best, that description is an understatement. Gene’s home lakes are Guntersville and Lake Chickamauga. Gene guided on Richmond Mill Lake for five years and it was there he learned he loved to teach people how to fish. Today he owns and operates multiple social media channels, to include his YouTube channel, Flukemaster. He has amassed a gargantuan following of 230,000+ subscribers on YouTube and that number grows every day. Through social media Gene shares his passion for bass fishing but also teaches others to fish. After all, it his motto: “Teaching the World to Fish”. His passion and ability to teach others has propelled him to become a commonly known name in the recreational fishing world. This is not because of special marketing or advertising, but simply because he provides value to his following. More people are able to enjoy fishing because of Gene Jensen. Nick Hoffman is an American singer, songwriter, fiddle player, and television personality, currently residing in Nashville, TN. He is also the host of the Outdoor Sportsman Award winning television show Nick's Wild Ride, on which he takes viewers on a unique journey as Nick digs deep into the food, culture, music, history, and heartbeat of a location as he hunts and fishes. Jeff Jones serves as Chair of the Southeast Chapter, and has hunted and fished all over Mississippi and Alabama. Growing up a small game hunter and panfish angler, he counts himself as one of lucky few non-Kentucky residents to have harvested an elk in that state. He recently returned from his second tour of duty in Iraq with the US Army, and now makes his home in Huntsville, AL.
