P. Brett Thorne (The Last Desperado) Is the mad scientist behind Hunt Hard Outdoors. Born and raised in rural north MO, he has a genuine passion for the outdoors and everything mother nature has to offer. He lives an outdoor life from whitewater guiding in Idaho to rock climbing in Arkansas and loves the majestic heritige of hunting as much as he loves the participation in conservation. As a gear guy that demands the best; sharing his experience and quality products with others is the cause of how Hunt Hard Outdoors came about.
Andy Pettit (The Nerd) lives and breathes hunting and habitat management 365 days a year. He spends his days working in the fast-paced high-tech industry and dreaming of being outside. He has relentless passion on working to ensure his hunting properties have the best habitat available in the neighborhood and helping others in their journey. He focuses primarily on deer & turkey, but will often be found with a fly rod in his hand as he is trying to achieve a lifelong goal of catching a fish in all 50 states on a fly rod. Andy lives the “Hunt Hard” mantra by introducing his 3 children to God’s glorious creations (and frequently chasing them through the brush).
“The Hunt Hard Outdoors team really appealed to me through their very obvious passion for everything outdoors. I live my life full-speed and my outdoor passions aren’t single threaded. I demand that my equipment will not be a limiting factor in my family’s outdoor success. You can be rest assured if you hear us promote an item, it will be personally put through the paces to achieve our support”.
Brandon Thorne (The Apprentice) grew up hunting on the family farm in northern Missouri. Although he lived in the city, the outdoors was always near to his heart, and he spent all of his free time there. He’s a barber by trade, but still spends as much time as he can hunting and fishing, unless he’s coaching his son’s football team. He is passing on his love for nature to both his daughter and son, who seem to be displaying the same priorities of their dad. He enjoys every aspect of being outdoors, from taking his kids squirrel hunting on the back 40 of the family farm, to backpack elk hunting in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. His desire to have the most efficient and up to date equipment, to make his hunt successful, is the basis for his knowledge of new products; and he shares this with others so they can prosper as well. Hunt Hard or Stay in Bed!
