The outdoors are calling... grunting... gobbling....
Jody and Susie Gardner both grew up in the area, went to school together, and have been friends since second grade. We have one grown, married daughter, and currently one incredible wire-haired dachshund, Summer, that is our game recovery tracking dog during hunting season. Off-season she is just a ball of energy and personality. Last fall we welcomed our first granddaughterl and find ourselves truly blessed on every front.
Jody has been an avid hunter, fisherman, and trapper since he was a boy. We hunt much of the same ground Jody grew up hunting. Jody is also a Charter Captain, having owned and operated Reel'm-N Charters for over ten years where he took groups out on Lake Erie for walleye and perch, and an occasional smallmouth. He has since sold the boat and purchased a bass boat, wanting to return to fishing the bass circuits. He has been fishing some of the FLW tournaments. Jody also has a his real estate agent license and is part-owner in a land leasing company, whose goal is to link owners of large tracts of land with ethical hunters looking for a place to hunt.
Susie is farm-girl at heart, having been raised on a beef farm in nearby Harrison County. She works full - time as a Quality Assurance Analyst at a pet health insurance company. She recently earned her Bachelor's degree and in addition, is a registered Veterinary Technician in the State of Ohio. She hunts and fishes. But most importantly, she tries to keep Jody straight. That really, is a full time job in itself.
