TRS Team - Matt Tratz


Growing up in Central Wisconsin Matt learned at an early age the importance of proper land management by hunting whitetail deer, turkey and other small game. This passion for the woods led him to pursue and earn his Urban Forest Management Degree. When Matt isn’t working at The Reel Shot, he is almost always in the woods tending to his food plots, scouting deer activity and doing anything he can to make the woods a better habitat for wildlife.

If you ever ask him, preserving and enhancing wildlife habitat is one of the single most rewarding things there is when it comes to being an outdoorsman. So it’s no question as to why he is such a passionate bow hunter. In fact, Matt has been shooting a bow ever since he has been old enough to hold one.

“If it can’t be shot with a bow, it doesn’t need to be shot” – Matt Tratz

Matt is also very proactive in helping others learn and become better outdoorsmen as well. For the past four years he has participated in the “Learn to Hunt Programs” for turkey and in 2014, Matt helped his nephew bag his first gobbler. As much as he loves taking new people out hunting for the first time, Matt’s favorite two companions would have to be his Jack Russel Terrier Charley and his Black Lab Hoyt. During the winter months, Matt also loves to ice fish for Bluegills, Crappie, Perch and Northern.
