Barry Duso
#TeamMP Field Staff

When Barry joined our family, he brought with him years of hunting knowledge from his youth. Growing up in a hunting family of his own, he was already set on the path to success.  An avid archery hunter, Barry also adds his 30-06 rifle, over-under 12 guage, and muzzleloader to the mix each year. Some people may think Barry is lucky to harvest quality deer each year, but we would attribute it to his natural instincts.

Talan Conjack
#TeamMP Field Staff

Talan brings to the team 20 years of hunting and fishing experience, but a lifetime of being outdoors. He spends time hunting both big and small game of all types, but his true passion lies in the tree stand with a bow and walking miles in the Allegheny National Forest looking for spring gobblers. He now has a hunter/fisherman/conservationist in training with his first born Emmett Coulter.
