Trophy Taker Pro Staff Jerrod Lile


People sometimes ask me how to get a job in the outdoor industry. I tell them that in my case, it had a lot to do with the fact that Dan and I happened to be lifelong friends since elementary school. Our shared passion of elk hunting and archery kept us in touch even when Dan's family moved away from our old hometown. It was ultimately that connection and my background in business that created the opportunity to come and work for Dan here at Trophy Taker.

I have been the General Manager for Trophy Taker since 2002 and feel blessed to be part of a great organization and part of an industry that I love! I love to camp, fish, hunt and explore the wild places of our world with my wife and two boys and have had the privilege of bowhunting from Africa to Alaska and a lot of places in between.

Although elk are by far my favorite animal to hunt, the most memorable hunt I've ever done was for my Montana Mountain goat. I shared that experience with a great friend and both of our families. Also, like all goat hunts, it took place in some of the greatest scenery and roughest country in the world!
