CEO Roy Pool:
Roy worked for 30 years in Maryland as an Environmental Science teacher and a co-owner of an environmental consulting firm. He led semiannual photographic safaris to East Africa and the Central American rainforests, and he planned dive trips throughout the Caribbean. He retired in 2000, bought a motorhome, and set out for Alaska with his wife and beloved bird dogs. For the next few years, Roy spent his summers in Alaska, fishing for giant Pacific salmon and monster rainbows. When bird seasons opened on August 10, Roy exchanged fly rods for side-by-side shotguns, hunting ptarmigan and grouse. When the snows drove him south, he hunted his way through the Yukon, British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Montana, Idaho, the Dakotas, Nebraska, Kansas, New Mexico, Arizona, and Sonora, Mexico. He spent his springs on a Mexican beach. Roy now lives on a small ranch bordering two million acres of National Forest in Arizona. From August through February each year, you’ll find Roy and his pack of English setters traveling throughout the West in a motor home, parked wherever they can set out against the wind, in search of game birds.
