About Me

My name is Mark Ledford and I live in Westerville, Ohio. I have a wonderful wife and four great children. I was a Youth Pastor at The Westerville Church of the Nazarene from 1986 to 1997 at which time I became the Senior Pastor. I am presently in ministry at the same church! I began deer hunting in 1987 and continue to love the outdoors and pursue this challenging hobby. I am a Christian, family man and am not an outfitter! I love hunting and go on a lot of “pay hunts.” I know what is out there and think what I have to offer is a very good deal. I have had many satisfied hunters who had good opportunities. I do my best to be honest about what you can expect on the hunts so you will not be disappointed. I try to make and keep the hunts affordable, unguided “real hunting” and fair chase. I try to limit the hunts so that the property is not overhunted.  I have had many requests to sell hunts for various landowners.  For two reasons I have refused these offers.  First, I want to make sure that I have time for God, family and my ministry.  Secondly, I want to make sure I have time to give you the best hunt possible. 

In 2013 I was blessed to harvest an incredible buck that had 26 points and gross scored 222" non typical and net scored 216" non typical. This gave me the opportunity to write articles for Bowhunter magazine and Big Buck magazine and opened the doors for me to be a special speaker for Wild Game Dinners across the United States.  I thank God for this wonderful opportunity to share my faith and tell stories about hunting!  Since harvesting the big buck in 2013, I have followed up with a double drop tine buck in 2014 and a 150" 15 pointer in 2016.  2015 was a tough year and a hunting season full of missed opportunities. I am able to laugh at myself and audiences enjoy laughing at me as I share about my failures and mishaps!  This is the incredible journey we call hunting and I think that is why I love it so much!

The pictures below are from a four day vacation to Florida with my buddy Jeff.  In three days of hunting and fishing, on day one I caught the biggest bass of my life (I am not a fisherman but this was fun! ).  I harvested the biggest gator of my life on day two and I harvested a fine wild hog on day three. Thanks to my friends Stuart and Marie in Florida!   

The Gator was thirteen feet four inches long!
