Guide

Jacob Salmon

“My name is Jacob Salmon, 24 years old from Dallas, Texas. I started duck hunting on public land in my early days of high school and fell head over heals for it. It wasn’t till I moved to Western Oklahoma 6 years ago, that I started chasing geese all of the time as well. I like to think I’m truly the most lucky and blessed kid alive. I get the opportunity to not only work “full time” in the oilfields of western Oklahoma, but also be able to travel to West Texas for 3-4 days a week  to guide crane and goose hunts for Redeye Outfitters. Couldn’t dream it up any better in my opinion. Blessed to be in the situation that I am, doing what I love with some great people.”

Guide/ Scout

Dillon Rodgers

"I'm Dillon Rodgers, I grew up in North East Arkansas hunting trophy low fence whitetails on Crowleys Ridge. From an early age I took to hunting like it was second nature, I grew up thinking everyone hunted and it was just a part of life. When I moved out to West Texas to continue my baseball career and later pursue a Political Science degree from Texas Tech University I got into waterfowl hunting and never looked back. Crane are very particular birds; there is so much to know about these extremely complex birds we as hunters have only touched the tip of the iceberg. I find joy in studying these birds, learning their tendencies, ways to outsmart them and how to give our clients the very best experience possible. Hunting Sandhill Crane with REO is an opportunity of a lifetime you don't want to miss out on".

Guide

Michael Wells

I’m from Katy Texas and have been hunting since I was 10. I grew up hunting deer in south Texas and have been hunting waterfowl since I was 20. When I first came to Lubbock to play football for Texas Tech I noticed all the geese flying around and noticed a flyer for the TTU DU and when I came back in 2014 I joined DU where I met Colton and our friendship and hunting relationship began".

Photographer

Brent Kimbrough

"I was born and raised in Jones, OK. My hunting photography passion began in western Oklahoma chasing quail with high school buddies. I made sure to carry a camera with me in my bird vest so that I could not only keep those memories with me, but be able to look at a photo and remember that very second. At Red Eye Outfitters, I am here to capture those memories for you".
