Zach New , Head of State in Alabama of Bucks of America Apparel® (BOA), is a J&S Scents, Hips Archery Targets, Raptor Razor, Upwind, Whitetail Institute, Lunds Custom Calls, Black Eagle Arrows, Buck Cage Pro Staffer from Satsuma, AL. He currently resides in Turnerville,AL, approximately 30 minutes from Mobile Bay.
He fell in love with the outdoors at a young age from having an entire family that spent every waking moment in the woods. From slipping in on a roosted gobbler in the spring, cutting timber in the summer or chasing whitetails in the fall, they lived the outdoors. The outdoors has found its way into the very fabric that drives him day to day.
Zach has taken Whitetails, Eastern Turkeys, Wild Hogs, Coyotes, Bobcats, Foxes, Gray Squirrels and Fox Squirrels over the course of his life. Zach says his most memorable moment in the field would be calming his wife down and watching her successfully harvest her first deer. Followed by sending her out alone. He'll never forget the first time he heard a gun shot over the ridge and received a text saying "I shot a hog!" on her first sit by herself. To Zach, that is one of the best feelings in the world, teaching someone else everything he knows and they actually learn from it and become successful.
Living so close to the Gulf Coast all of his life made the opportunities endless for him as an outdoorsman. A 20 minute boat ride north or south and he can fish fresh or saltwater. A 30 minute drive and he could go from diver ducks to backwater woodies. He hog hunts from the mouth of the bay as far north as Washington County. Alabama is a sportsman paradise likewise to Louisiana. Alabama hunting is one of a kind, so with Bucks of America, we created a state exclusive apparel line for the Alabama outdoorsman. We are poised bring everyone a locally focused brand that represents who they are. "I love wearin' my Bucks of Alabama gear every day!"
On my Pro Staff, I have Chris Riley, Junior Pro Staffer Dalton Sirmon, Jonathan Hayes, Keith Mckenzie, Matt Breland, Don Thompson, Tim Martin and his son Junior Pro Staff Brayden I envision Bucks of Alabama being the go to place for an outdoor apparel and a place to share all harvest photos and information on hunting in the state of Alabama.

Aaron Brehm, is the Head of State in Alaska, the last frontier, of the iconic outdoor fashion line, Bucks of America Apparel®. He currently resides in Wasilla, Alaska, approximately 2936 miles away from Russia (No, he can't see it from his house, he says) However, Mount McKinley is approximately 120 miles from his house and on a good day is easily visible.
Aaron comes from a state where thing are a little different than normal. He grew up out side. His parents told him and his siblings that during the day they needed to play outside, not realizing that "daytime" was sometimes 22 hours long. So, Aaron was always up for a hike on a new trail or to climb trees. The days lasted so long as a child, he even attempted to dig tunnels in hopes he'd make to China.
Aaron harvested his first big game in August of 2014. It was a large caribou that was all alone. After hours of looking for the herd with a buddy, he decided to turn around and head back to camp. At that moment, he saw what looked like a white blob out of the corner of his eye. Aaron says, "that was the first time I ever had buck fever" and after a solid hour squaring off with this giant, he's been presented an opportunity to harvest him. After several hours of quartering and packing it back to camp, Aaron realized then, he was addicted. Since that day, Aaron has harvested several more Caribou and Moose. When he is not chasing Big Game in Alaska, Aaron is hunting rabbits, grouse, ducks , fox and other small game.
Many people have a lot of misconceptions about Alaska, such as thinking everyone likes riding polar bears and moose around town. Well, some of that is true, but thats after they get home to igloos take our sled dogs out to race down the local penguin sledding hill. Okay, that's all a myth, but the reality is, Alaska truly is the land of the last frontier. From fishing for salmon and panning for gold to watching the northern lights dance across the sky at night, Alaska is a beautiful state. In the winter time snowboarding and sledding are his favorite events while Summers are filled with ATV's and camping.
For now, Aaron is the only member of Bucks of Alaska, but that is hopefully going to change. His vision for Alaskan apparel is water proof and warm but light weight. Clothes that can be warn year round and specific for hunting and fishing. All things that Bucks of America will soon expand to.

Brandon Wiant, Head of State in Florida of the iconic outdoor fashion line, Bucks of America Apparel® (BOA), is a Pro Staffer from Orlando, FL. He currently resides in Groveland, FL, approximately 30 minutes West of Orlando.
He was mostly into sports until he turned 14 when Buddy's older brother took him hunting for the first time and they didn't still hunt, they ran dogs chasing deer and hogs. Iit was a lot different than you see on TV or many people talk about but it's the way southerners do it. It's a tradition, a heritage, and he was hooked.
He's harvested turkey, deer, hogs, ducks, quail, dove... just about anything. He's only ever hunted Florida so all he knows is the swamp. The most memorable hunt he had was his first hog hunt with his wife where they called a trophy boar.
His passion to be outdoors is strong and if he can be outside he's going to be outside hunting something. Having an apparel based out of individual states is important to show the heritage in the ways that people do it from state to state.
He doesn't have any other pro staffers but he's working on getting some.

Forrest Peritts , Head of State in Georgia of the iconic outdoor fashion line, Bucks of America Apparel® (BOA). He currently resides in Canton Georgia, approximately 30 minutes north of Atlanta.
My dad started carrying me with him when I was just 2 years old from the mountains of the Cohutta wilderness to the hardwood bottoms of middle Georgia it's all I've know since I can remember.
I've hunted Whitetail deer, turkey, squirrel, raccoons, and hogs all in Georgia still looking for that out of state experience my greatest moment was taking my oldest daughter on her first hunt and my youngest will go on hers this year.
Growing up in Georgia hunting on our farm in middle Ga there was always something to do it was either planting food plots or fishing in the stream but we were always ready for September to roll around for the start of deer season we always spent the holidays at the farm we have been QDMA managed since the mid 90's.
Still searching for the right set of pro staffers to help push the name for the Bucks of America Apparel Brand in the great state of Georgia for the future.

Corey Markley, Head of State in Kansas of the iconic outdoor fashion line, Bucks of America Apparel (BOA), from Topeka, Kansas. He currently resides in the capital city of Kansas, roughly 4 hours East of the infamous Largest Ball of Twine located in Cawker City, KS.
My love for the outdoors began when I was only 3 years old. My father and granddad took me fishing and hunting at a very early age. I will never forget the thrill and excitement from catching my first fish, shooting my first gun and bow, and definitely shooting my first buck. The outdoor lifestyle is something that I have always cherished. And through the legacy of Bucks of America, will be able to pass on to fellow and future hunters.
During my hunting and fishing adventures in Kansas I have had the opportunity to harvest many different species to include: whitetail deer,Eastern wild turkey, pheasant, quail, walleye, crappie, Bass, several species of catfish, and bowfishing for carp and gar. I have also had the pleasure of pheasant hunting in the great state of South Dakota. The fishing trips have taken me a little bit further from home. My family and I ventured to San Diego, CA to go deep sea fishing where we caught many different species of exotic saltwater fish. These have all been great experiences, however, I will never forget my most memorable adventure of going deep sea fishing in Jamaica with my wife for our honeymoon. We both got to experience the thrill of reeling in a fighting barracuda. Hunting and fishing with my wife and 3 year old daughter is what I love the most.
As a Kansas native, if it's not a major hunting season, or prime time for fishing, you can find me riding dirt bikes, horses, and four wheelers, or taking out the camper and boat for a nice relaxing weekend. But around here, once August rolls around it's time to make sure the feeders are full and trail cameras are ready to go as buck season is quickly approaching! That's when my Bucks of Kansas gear comes in handy as I get ready for the best time of year.
In the near future I hope to be able to provide camouflage hunting gear to my fellow Kansas hunters.

My name is Michael McCord, Sr. I am Head of State for Bucks of Kentucky/America. I started squirrel hunting at the age of 8 with a 410 bolt action shotgun. At the age of 9, I started bow hunting with a Browning Nomad and a recurve bow. My love of hunting kept growing every year. At the age of 16, I killed my first deer with a 30-06. It was a 5 point buck at 225 yards. At the age of 17, I killed my first deer with a bow. The bow I used was a Martin Warthog. That deer was a doe. A month and a half later I killed my second deer with a 30-06, it was a 5 point buck. In this same time frame I hunted rabbit, quail, spring and fall turkey and dove.
In my younger years, age 13, I did taxidermist work until I was 18 years old. I have done some coyote hunting as well. My hunting passion is deer hunting with a bow. I have never hunted out of the state of Kentucky, but that is definitely a goal of mine. I hope to fulfill that goal before this year is complete. As I prepare my season for deer hunting, I set my deer blinds and tree stands up in July. I put out my minerals and food plots and set my trail cameras up throughout the farm. I also set aside time for target practice at the 3D ranges. I am truly grateful to my father, Russell McCord Jr., for introducing me to hunting and supporting my passion of hunting. I have tried to instill that passion of hunting with my children and now my grandchildren.
