Tom RyleTom Ryle

Tom Ryle grew up in the Puget Sound area of Washington State and has been bowhunting public land big game in the Northwest over 20 years. His passion for bowhunting has also fueled adventures across the U.S., Canada, and South Africa.

Following his passion he went to work with legendary game calling pioneer and National Bowhunters Hall of Fame inductee, Larry D. Jones, at Wilderness Sound Productions. Later, Tom partnered with Bowhunter Magazine’s Technical Editor, Dave Holt, in Colorado. They conducted bowhunting clinics and spent 150+ days afield each year bowhunting, testing new products, and filming promotional videos and target footage for DART Target Systems.

Stan WoodyStan Woody

Stan Woody is a home-grown Pacific Northwest bowhunter who grew up in Cathlamet, Washington, a small game rich town nestled between the Willapa Hills and the Columbia River. He grew up hunting and fishing with his dad since it all started just a short step out the front door.

Stan’s adventures have taken him to some of the most rugged outdoor backcountry locations across the U.S. including remote locations in Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Oregon, Washington and the extreme conditions of Alaska. And he has been blessed with much success, harvesting a wide variety of big game. Even though Stan loves new adventures in the backcountry, mountaineering and hiking his roots pull him back to his passion of DIY bowhunting elk and blacktail deer in the lush environment of the Pacific Northwest.

Stan’s affiliations include the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, American Society of Mechanical Engineers and the Oregon Hunters Association, to name a few. He is also a product design and engineering consultant, Beta Program member for Columbia Sportswear and on the Field Staff for Pursue the Outdoors. Stan, his wife and three children reside in Portland, Oregon where he is a full-time Product Innovation Manager for Intel Corporation and Co-Founder of FreshTRAX Inc.
