Introducing the staff and crew
of the Rockin' 7 Ranch.

These are the folks that

Steve Trupiano from Michigan has been with us for 12 seasons now. Steve is an all around guide that is capable of taking care of any situation or style of hunt. He is a casual guide that is passionate about hunting, and once he get's fired up, he's the best story teller on the ranch! Don't tell him, but we wouldn't be the same operation without our go-to guy!

Robert Lesner has been guiding for us 10 years. Nobody knows the terrain or the habits of the animals like Robert. He puts the work in scouting during the off season which helps, but it just comes natural to him to know exactly where to find the big ones and get them in the back of the pickup.

Darrell Newburn is coming into his third year with the Rockin' 7. His hard work ethic is amazing and he has no quit in him. He's a strong guide with a positive attitude and will keep beating the brush until the right critter shows up. He's skilled with many weapons--including Leica binoculars (yes, there is a story there!)

Kevin Schowengerdt has been with us for 7 years. He manages our 7-sisters cow unit and has guided big game hunts for us the last 3 years. Kevin is an easy going guide that knows the terrain and ranch as well or better than anyone.

Sam Sandoz is coming into his fourth year with us. He's our project manager and keeps the ranch moving forward. He's constantly thinking and strategizing to ensure you the best hunt possible. I don't know why he's so fun to tease, but if you get Sam as your guide, be sure to tease him about something or he'll wonder what's up.

John Dean's been guiding for us since 2014. John is a capable, consistent guide that is casual and keeps a cool head, unless something big jumps up, then all bets are off!



Joel Sandoz is now on his second year with us. he handles the management of the lodge along with booking and licensing. Joel has a passion for all types of hunting, and a very keen eye for spotting game.

Shauna Sandoz is the friendly voice on the other side of your phone calls and emails. She's great with details and keeping track of your reservations. It takes a law degree to keep up with Wyoming game and fish regulations, but her and Joel have grabbed the bull by the horns to make it easier for you!




Kyle Koppleman is everybody's friend. He is the all around camp jack and takes care of all the details from guiding coyote and prairie dog hunters to fixing up the mechanical problems for everyone on the ranch! When Kyle is around, things just go smoother.

Rich Halquist is our cow boss, and resident "Ranch Therapist". He's been guiding big game hunts for 2 seasons with us. If you get Rich as your guide, you'll leave with a great critter and a great friend.

Our housekeepers, Emily and Abbie. These gals work hard behind the scenes to get your rooms clean and ready when you get here. We are proud to have these two sisters who love hunting and the outdoors and also cook and clean!



Here I am getting wore out on a Coues deer hunt in Arizona with a group of our guides. One thing folks see when they get here is how much of a team we are. We are a group of people that enjoy what we do, and working with each other. I've been guiding hunters since I was 12 years old, and after more than 30 years, I still love what I do! It's a pleasure to be able to share this lifestyle with so many of you and to help fulfill your dreams--it makes those early mornings worth it!

Brad Reese--Owner

The cooking crew! You will never find a happier and funner bunch of cooks--anywhere--and the food is amazing. My wife and her sisters and niece keep the Rockin' in our name!
