Real DeCOY ProStaff Team Bio’s

Chris Marquez – ProStaff Coordinator

How y’all doing my name is Chris Marquez I am the new Pro Staff Coordinator for The REAL DeCOY and I’m very excited to start this journey with all the Pro Staffers and TRD.

A little bit about myself I am a retired veteran, I serviced in the Army as an Infantryman from 2011-2021. During my service I have 2 deployments in Afghanistan with 101st Airbourne Division 3-187IN. I am married with five (5) amazing children. I am from the state of Texas, so growing up has either been big game hunting, fishing, or dove hunting. Waterfowl was something I got into while I was in the service and after that first hunt, I was hooked. Fast forward thousands of dollars later, meeting great people, and now an advocate Waterfowl Hunter. I was blessed to continue my journey in the industry of waterfowl, by taking out veterans on sponsored waterfowl hunt’s, starting a Waterfowl podcast “Flyway Connections” with fellow veteran Joe Speirs and getting the opportunity to connect with TRD. Again, I’m very excited to interact with each of you individually and as a whole. As a ProStaff coordinator I would like to build a great group of guys that enjoy waterfowling as much as I do. Create new friendship – maybe share a blind and create an easy way that we can support The REAL DeCOY. I got some great ideas, and I cannot wait to hear from you on your thoughts.  So, if there’s anything you would like to discuss I am more than willing to converse about anything about me, TRD, or just waterfowl conversations. Thank you all again for your time and I’m look forward to speaking with y’all.

Joe Cliborne

My name is Joe Cliborne. I was born and raised in VA and now chase ducks on mostly public rivers and private swamps within the state. I grew up with an interest in hunting and no one to take me, so once I got old enough, I tried many different styles until I found my passion in chasing ducks. Now I continue to pursue them with a son that makes sure we are ready by opening day.

Connie Markham

I grew up in hunting and fishing family in Southern Wisconsin. With an influence from my dad who is still very active fishing, hunting and trapping to this day. I remember him taking our family to the Coon Club. My sister and I would show his Bluetick hounds and we would dream of getting that “trophy”. I still have fond memories of running our beagles squirrel hunting in the fall.

It was also a dream of mine to take flight so 8 years ago I decided to chase that dream and earn my private pilot’s license.

I like to promote the outdoors and its activities to other women. Showing them you can enjoy the hunt and or just have fun.

With an affiliation to Ducks Unlimited, Delta Waterfowl, Wisconsin Waterfowl Association, Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, Waterfowl Hunters’ EXPO and several Wounded Warrior and Mentorship programs continues to promote the sport to other ladies.

Matthew Willey
I am Matthew Willey aka Thee Alaskan Viking. I am a waterfowl junkie! I have been waterfowl hunting for the past 25 years. Raised in Montana, I quickly fell in love with waterfowl hunting. After I graduated high school, I moved to Alaska and brought my passion for waterfowl with me.  Chasing ducks, geese and cranes over this vast state has taught me one thing; the sunrises never get old and the sunsets always sadden. I have had the opportunity to hunt all over Alaska and have met the most incredible people doing so….

Bill and Ducks

Jake O.

Hello,
My name is Jake I’m from California and grew up hunting the Sacramento valley. I grew up hunting waterfowl almost all of my life. I grew up hunting deer and upland game, but waterfowl was always special to me.

I moved to Kansas in 2020 to continue my collegiate baseball career and continued to have opportunities to chase waterfowl. I made a lot of new friends in Kansas that never hunted waterfowl and now have them addicted to this way of life as well.

After graduating college, I moved to Texas in 2022. I continued to chase waterfowl and make new friends here. I’ve learned by the time the ducks have made it to Texas they have seen it all, which makes the hunts more challenging. I love chasing these educated ducks though and will continue to bring more/new hunters into this way of life.

Sharp Reynierson

Hi my name is Sharp Reynierson; I am from Lawrenceville Georgia. Currently, I am finishing an environmental science degree with a focus in ecology, but the rice fields of NE Arkansas become my home during waterfowl season where I guide for DLW Outfitters. I enjoy working my dog and blowing a call more than pulling a trigger. My new passions are getting vets in the outdoors and helping new hunters through a podcast I cohost; Flyway Connections.

Benjamin Stetter – The Camo Kid

Perfect days are overcast with a light rain with stories of the hunt.
