Laden Force


Laden joined Wildfowl in 2017. Raised on his family farm in northern Missouri, he cut his teeth on hunting white-tailed deer, eastern turkeys, waterfowl and quail behind his German Shorthair, Ellie. Since leaving the small town to pursue Undergraduate and Graduate degrees in Business and Business Administration, his education and passion have driven a career of 12+ years in the outdoor industry with companies such as Remington, Zeiss Sports Optics, Bowtech, Bowhunter Magazine and now, North American Whitetail, Gun Dog and Wildfowl. Laden is an avid outdoorsman that thrives on pursuing game with his bow, rifle or shotgun, successfully harvesting several North American species. He has been lucky enough to move back to small-town Northeast Missouri, where he and his wife, Jordan, are raising their three boys, Stone, Wilder and Zee.

Skip Knowles


A lifelong outdoors editor and writer, Knowles has hunted four continents at the helm of WILDFOWL, Predator Nation, as host of World of Beretta TV
and as contributor to other IMO pubs such as Guns & Ammo and Petersen's Hunting. A life spent in the mountains of the Pacific Northwest and Utah have given him a great passion for the West, but he loves about any type of waterfowl or big game hunting. He is also the world¹s greatest shot when nobody else is around.

Associate Editor

Nathan was born and raised in rural Northeast Pennsylvania and has spent his whole life getting to know the woods through hiking, camping and on horseback. Hunting found him later in life, but it has been a love affair since. For years now, he has spent most of his free time with a rifle, shotgun or his Labrador retriever. Up until joining OSG, he had been running his own multi-media company focused on social media marketing and commercial production. Despite work in modern mediums, he still writes many of his short stories on an old Olympia SM9 typewriter and has a book collection that always needs an extra shelf for Gene Hill.
