Bree & Frank Wade

Frank grew up in Florida where at a young age learned to hunt and fish from his father and uncles. After Frank was retired from the Army in 2008. Frank’s love for the outdoors grew even more getting involved in a few veteran outdoor programs getting other veterans in the outdoors, and showing them the healing benefits of being in the outdoors. In 2017 Frank moved to Iowa to chase his passion of chasing big deer. During this time Frank met his now wife, Bree, and started sharing his love for the outdoors with her. As much as Frank loves to hunt, what he loves even more is taking new hunters out and watching them harvest their very first deer! That is a feeling no video game or tv show could ever give you.

Bree grew up in Kansas and moved to Iowa in 2009. She has always loved being in the outdoors but never had anyone take her hunting until she first met her husband, Frank, in the summer of 2017. He took her on her very first hunt which turned out to be a game changer! She was able to harvest a beautiful Iowa buck (Pictured below) after only 2 hours in the blind and she has since been hooked! Having no previous knowledge of everything that goes into hunting and the importance of conservation, Bree attended the very first Women’s Empowerment Camp put on by Raised At Full Draw in 2018 (now known as the RISE camp) and made lifelong friends all while learning everything she needed to know about successfully and ethically harvesting a deer with her bow. That opened the door for her and Frank to get to know the Holder family and join them on their mission to teach and empower hunters while changing the image of hunting one arrow at a time. When she’s not hunting, Bree spends most of her time with their two boisterous dogs, loves music and photography. Bree and Frank are excited to be a part of this important cause and help those interested in learning everything that hunting and conservation have to offer!
