Kevin McFarland Co-Founder

Grew up in Melba, ID hunting and fishing with my grandpa. Joined the National Guard in 2003 then deployed to Kirkuk, Iraq in 2005 and Baghdad, Iraq in 2010. I want to help other veterans overcome and deal with the burdens of PTSD the best way I know how, in the outdoors.


Adam Bahem Co-Founder

Navy 2006-2010. An incredibly mediocre hunter from Idaho. I'm a better photographer than hunter. I helped start this group to help my veteran and active duty brothers and sisters succeed in the outdoors as well as life. Big game hunting is my passion and I hope to use that to create a lifetime of memories and to help others do the same.

I was introduced to hunting by my dear wife in 2009 and have been hooked ever sense. I primarily hunt Big game (Deer Elk) and upland game birds (Grouse, Turkey, Quail and Dove).  I am proud to serve our brothers and sisters that need a friend just to vent and get them away from it all.

I'm an ARMY VET OF 8 YRS.  I'm an avid lazy bank Fishermen, when I hunt for big game I mostly just hike. The outdoors is my passion.  I'm happy to continue to serve for the purpose of trying to get veterans interested in the outdoors, for relief and to enjoy God's gift to us.

Chris Boesiger - Pro-Staff

 I absolutely thrive on the outdoors. I hunt, fly fish and trap. I'm also the co-owner of a wildlife control business.  I served in the Army from 1998-2006. When I got out I experienced severe depression and suffered from PTSD. I have found that getting in the outdoors helps lower the anxiety. I want to help other veterans that have similar issues find peace and the great doors can do that.

Scott Titus - Volunteer

Grew up in Melba, Idaho.  I spend my free time hunting and fishing which is what lead me to start helping out as much as I could with IBV, to be someone to help find locations for get togethers, and also to be there for anyone to talk too and open up too!

Joel Biggs Pro Staff

Army Veteran 2000-2014
I grew up enjoying the Idaho outdoors. I love big game hunting, especially mule deer, however I won’t turn down a chance to shoot predators or look for sheds. Fishing backcountry lakes, mining, gold dredging, and metal detecting while exploring Idaho is what I love to do. I enjoy taking veterans and their families along to experience our great state to relax and have fun.
