Without a doubt, Braden Cooper believes that his life will be defined by his family, his religious beliefs in God and his passions. As an expert outdoorsman, an innovative entrepreneur, and conservationist, he brings an unprecedented level of dedication to all that he does.
Braden’s foremost passion is the outdoors, his three decades of personal experience as a sportsman has taken him all over the United States and resulted in many successful trophy hunts, and a freezer full of meat. Although each experience is unique, he believes that every hunt begins with a sportsman’s drive and dedication. In his early days as a football player for the University of Utah, he honed a tenacious and competitive spirit, that contribute to Braden’s ongoing accomplishments. After earning his accounting degree at the Uinversity of Utah, Braden was able to incorporate these same traits into his career as a business professional, helping over 13,000 new businesses launch.
Since Braden has completed nearly all of his personal hunts DIY, he brings a fresh perspective to his varied work as a hunting professional and expert. His first-hand knowledge of each state’s specific application process, combined with a strategic approach to optimize draw odds, offers insight to bypass the typical challenges of applying for tags in new areas. For the last twenty years, he has consistently applied for tags in eighteen states, giving him an intimate knowledge and high level of expertise, which sets him apart from so many others.
In the field, Braden strives to uphold the North American Wildlife Conservation Model and by doing so, supports the principles, which allow future generations to enjoy the sportsman lifestyle. He also believes that the freedoms and liberties our great country was founded on, are precious, and remains committed to championing the people who protect them. His favorite hunting memories are those with his father, and he hopes that by mentoring those interested in hunting, they might be afforded the same remarkable experiences. Additionally, he supports most conservation organizations that have the intentions of advancing conservation and protecting the heritage of hunting. This includes currently serving on the Southern Utah Chapter SCI Board of Directors.
For Braden, the heritage of hunting is more than a hobby; it remains a passion, a core value, and an inspiration.
