Darrell Madden

Darrell Madden was born on November 15, 1960. Ironic that he was born in November, as this is the opening of deer season across North America.

Growing up in North Carolina, hunting and fishing are a way of life for Darrell -- Colorado to Texas, Canada to Florida -- all the while chasing big game wherever he could! He never dreamed this would become such a big part of his life. His love for the outdoors comes after God and his wonderful wife of 23 years. Being successful as a hunter comes from countless hours of being in the field -- Darrell has earned a solid reputation of knowing what it takes to take big game.

Darrell has many successes under his hunting belt:

 

Darrell also has 30 years of teaching the N.C. Hunter's Safety course.

Darrell's humble beginnings have taught him to look and listen when hunting and to enjoy every moment of the outdoors!
