Jim Gonzales

Jim is a life-long resident of Eagle County and resides in Minturn. He has hunted the Colorado Mountains for 50 years and is experienced in calling game having bow hunted for 34 years. He is a life time member of the RMEF, Mule Deer Foundation and Trout Unlimited. Jim was the chairman for the Eagle Valley Chapter for 12 years and a committee member for 4 years. A life time of hunting in Colorado, Illinois and Alaska has given Jim the skills to call in game and he has become very successful in that endeavor as an accomplished bow hunter.

Jim’s philosophy is “knowledge comes from experience and success comes when that knowledge is put to the test. The outcome is always in question, success the sweetest reward.”
