Les Welch

Some people were born to hunt. Les Welch is one of those individuals. Similar to Iron Will Outfitters Co-Founder Bill Vanderheyden, Les grew up chasing Wisconsin small game and whitetails. After years of harvesting countless whitetails with his bow, including many Pope & Young, he was ready for his next challenge - hunting western big game. 

Since committing to become a successful western big game hunter, Les has targeted numerous antelope, mule deer, and elk, all with a 100% success rate. Les carries an Iron Will mentality into each of his hunts, as well as off-season preparations. After his first western hunt, he realized he would need to be in top physical condition to continue to find success. Just a few months later, he had already lost sixty pounds and 20% body fat. Les is now an Ironman Triathlete, Personal Trainer, and Fitness Nutrition Coach.
