Grow the Hunt, brought to you by Moultrie Return to Blog
Moultrie Feeders is pleased to bring you "Grow the Hunt" - a blog dedicated to game management. We have spent the last 30 years building a brand name through quality products that game managers trust. Our goal with this blog is to give our readers the firsthand knowledge of two hunters who have made game management their passion. Join Brandon and Coop every week as they plant food plots, scout game and, most importantly, hunt.

Rich Miller
Rich is an avid deer, turkey and waterfowl hunter with over 29 years of hunting experience. Though he loves to hunt turkey and waterfowl, his passion is bow hunting big whitetails. In doing so, Rich has taken numerous trophy bucks across the country. He loves sharing his knowledge with others, whether it is giving a seminar or calling in someone’s first turkey, as long as it is promoting the hunting tradition. When Rich is not in the woods or duck blind hunting, he is working on a food plot, planting a dove field, placing feeders or checking game cameras. Rich has been a valued member of the Knight and Hale Pro-Staff since 2004. Since then he has given seminars, worked store promotions, trade shows and conventions from Maine to Nevada. He is also a member of the Moultrie and Mossy Oak pro staff. Rich lives in Anderson, SC with his wife and son.

Art Helin
Art Helin began hunting 25 years ago under the instruction of his father and grandmother. What started as small game and deer hunting in his home state grew to an obsession to hunt nearly every big game species across North America. Thus far, his adventures have allowed him to successfully harvest many animals from six different big game species and four turkey species. Although he enjoys any type of hunting, he is mad about whitetails and turkeys! Art is busy promoting archery and hunting in his community when he’s not afield. He is president of the local National Wild Turkey Federation chapter, which hosts a highly successful, award-winning Learn to Turkey Hunt event. Art lives in rural southwestern Wisconsin with his wife, Michelle, and daughters, Alana and Elizabeth. While Art loves hunting, what he has really come to enjoy, even more, is hunting with his wife and daughters. His proudest moment came last deer season when Alana shot her first deer, a doe.

Brandon Wikman
Brandon is an accomplished outdoor writer and outdoor personality. He writes for several local, state and national outdoor magazines and stresses his stories with a young hunter’s perspective. Brandon is also co-host of the nationally acclaimed television show, The Next Generation on the Outdoor Channel.When hunting season is over, Brandon sharpens his turkey calling skills by competing in turkey calling competitions. He is a three-time Iowa Intermediate Champ, and has placed third or better in each of the seven events held around Wisconsin, Illinois and Iowa. Brandon is a full-time student at the University of Eau Claire Wisconsin. He is pursuing a degree in Advertising and Public Relations.

Randy Cooper
Randy "Coop" Cooper has spent most of his life listening to and helping farmers and hunters manage their land and the animals that live there. His real-life lessons have blended with his passion for archery, whitetails and turkeys. Every free moment he has is devoted to maximizing the growth, health and production of wildlife on his property. In turn, Coop enjoys sharing his experiences with food plots, supplemental feeding, scouting and other hunting tactics. Coop lives in Woodstock, Georgia with his family.
