Don is a native Arizona resident who has spent his entire adult life (except for 2 years 9 months and 13 days in Uncle Sam's Army) pursuing his passion of enjoying the great outdoors of Arizona. Don worked as a law enforcement officer for over 15-years after his stint in the U.S. Army. After an on-the-job injury forced his retirement from the law enforcement field, Don decided to start a business to help others who enjoyed the great outdoors as much as he did. Working with his friend Larry Sallee, Don started Arizona Wildlife Outfitters in 1987 in Kingman.
