Richard Mann's obsession for hunting wild turkey began in 1984 in SE Utah with a box call purchased in a second hand store. He has pursued these magnificent game birds in Washington since 1990 and affectionately refers to them as "his disease". With over 28 years of "experience", much of his turkey hunting education comes from first hand experience as there was little opportunity to learn from seasoned hunters. Rich has shared his passion for the wild turkey, and "lessons learned" from them, to others for nearly ten years through seminars and mentored hunts. He is an active local and state chapter National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF) member and serves as Washington's NWTF Save the Hunt coordinator.
