Chris Dunkin, Founder and President of Trophy Pursuit, was born in the rolling hills of southern Iowa where he was blessed with the opportunity to bow hunt monster whitetails and other game. Chris began hunting alongside friends and family, and continues to do so today. Some of his earliest memories afield are of when his father would literally carry him while pheasant hunting. Now, Chris puts in a significant amount of time preparing for each whitetail season by running trail cameras, picking stand locations, and knocking on doors to obtain permission in areas big whitetails call home. Chris thoroughly enjoys building histories with specific bucks on the properties he hunts through trail cameras and velvet footage, then pursuing them with a stick and string. Because of this, Chris has had histories with 8 out of the last 9 bucks he has killed. His passion for the chase does not stop with big mature whitetails, but also encompasses hunting western game, turkeys, waterfowl, small game, shed hunting, as well as introducing beginners to the sport. If Chris isn’t spending time with his beautiful fiance’ Alex and daughter, Irelynn, you can bet that he’s hunting something somewhere.
To Chris, sharing the stories of his 365 day a year pursuit is just as fulfilling as pulling the trigger. Chris’ passion for the outdoors led him to pursue a career in the natural resource field where he is now a Conservation Director and is able to work in the outdoors on a daily basis.
Chris feels truly blessed to be surrounded by such an amazing team here at Trophy Pursuit, and is excited to see what the future holds.
