Introducing our 2022 Pro Staff
Dianne Hunter is fueled with passion, and you can feel this when she shares her love for the outdoors. She tells us “my passion for life is not to buy meat from the store. We always grew a huge 1-2 acre garden, we hunted our food and fished our hearts out. I was raised on good clean food. I know I have always appreciated the lives of the animals and respected the land. I am grateful to all who let me hunt and harvest on their property. I am blessed to be a mother and be free to hunt!”
I was introduced to Archery hunting at an early age. Thanks to my Dad’s elk calling skills my first archery harvest was a 6×7 bull elk at age 12. The love of solo run-and-gun style calling and trekking deep into wilderness haunts for Bulls became a passion from that day forward. Elk are my thing, but my all-time favorite memory is Bighorn Sheep hunting, where my dad was able to watch me fulfill a life-long dream of stalking and harvesting a Ram with my bow. Tournament archery has played a large role in preparing me to make quality shots in the field under adverse or tense conditions. Tournament nerves, equipment selection and tuning knowledge, and honing shot execution skills for competition all translate into shaping an improved hunter. I love competing, I love hunting, but most of all I love and appreciate the people of Archery. Simply the Best there is! The SOP team aired their development of the Peep It on social media platforms and took us all along for the ride. I was fortunate to be involved in the testing. What a smooth ride it has been!
55 year old father of 4, machinist by trade. Been hunting since I was 13 years old! Favorite past time is hunting with a close 2nd for fishing! Archery is my favorite type of hunting!

Derek is an avid archer and outdoorsman who loves hunting and trapping. He enjoys every hunting season, but his passion is chasing Whitetail in the fall and Turkey in the spring.
