Brian is a professional wildlife biologist working in conservation and wildlife management in northern Arizona. His love of hunting growing up in Iowa, especially turkey hunting, is what lead him down the path of a career in conservation.

Brian has been a member of the NWTF since 2003 and has involved with the Northern Arizona Chapter of the NWTF since 2012. He has been the chapter president of the Northern Arizona Chapter since 2015. He is very active in the youth hunting programs, especially the youth turkey camps in northern Arizona.

Treasurer - Jessica Manuell

Secretary - Bruce King

Bruce has been a resident of Arizona for 36 years.  He was introduced to hunting shortly after moving here.  He quickly found his passion of spending time in the outdoors and making memories with friends, both old and new, in the field.  In 2002, he moved to Flagstaff and, through hunting, met new friends quickly.  The former President of the NAZ Chapter NWTF convinced Bruce to join the local NWTF chapter in 2004.  This is where Bruce learned so much more about the opportunity to give back to wildlife and other people through conservation.  He is presently in the process of helping to motivate, teach, and inform new youth hunters as a certified Hunter Education instructor with the Arizona Game and Fish Department.

State Representative - Stellane John

Growing up on the reservation definitely had its challenges, but that only inspired me to work harder and to do more. I am Navajo and Hopi, work full-time, a veteran, student, coach, CEO and Founder of my own non-profit organization 'Team Way of the Warrior', events coordinator for the Arizona Mule Deer Organization, and current State Chapter Representative for NWTF. Most of the time you'll catch me wearing a ball cap or fishing. My love for the outdoors is unconditional and so is giving back to the youth, my community, and tribe.
