Get to know your West-Central Illinois Farm & Recreational Land Professional, Rod Shepard!
Rod was raised in North-Central Pennsylvania, where it all began and the seeds were planted for him to develop into an avid whitetail deer hunter. At the early age of eight, his father started taking him hunting, trapping and fishing. Like many hunters, Rod credits his father for introducing him to the outdoors and passing down his passion to pursue the whitetail deer. Little did he know at the time, not only would it become a passion, but rather an obsession.
Hunting is something he absolutely loves and has appreciated throughout the years. Upon retiring from a very successful 28 ½ year career with United States Army and moving to the Midwest, Rod has taken his passion for hunting to another level. He now has the time to correctly set-up the properties he’s planning to hunt; from running trail cameras, planting food plots, and strategically placing tree stands. Like any serious hunter, he truly enjoys the game of cat and mouse with a big mature buck.
Today, Rod says he’s very blessed to be able to work his dream job, where he now shares his passion for the outdoors with others, as his father did with him. While serving in the Army and having a father who raised him to firmly believe a handshake is just like a contract, there are two things he holds very close; honor and integrity. They are not only his foundation as a Land Professional, but his foundation in life. Rod resides in Central Illinois with his wife and their two daughters.
