Rodd VandeWall was born and raised on a farm in Oskaloosa, Iowa. His passion for the outdoors was fueled by frequent fishing trips around the area with his grandfather. It was on these trips that Rodd learned to enjoy family and nature in God’s great outdoors.
As Rodd grew older, his taste for the outdoors expanded in to upland bird and waterfowl hunting. Later he began to bow hunt the Iowa whitetail. His turkey hunting experience started in 2001 with a friend from work. Seth and Rodd met in 2003 and Rodd has enjoyed helping Seth guide numerous hunts in Iowa and Nebraska. Rodd currently resides in Monroe, IA with is wife Paula and has 2 children Blake and Lauren.
