Born and raised in Lafayette, California, Blake Fahmie discovered his love for the outdoors and hunting at a young age, starting his hunting journey at age 10 with his father in the Suisun Marsh and the Sacramento Valley. This early exposure sparked a passion that has driven his career and personal interests.

“I am most passionate about getting new hunters involved, protecting our hunting rights, and increasing the waterfowl population,” Fahmie said. “Just being able to do what I love on a daily basis.”

His impressive scholastic background includes a bachelor’s and master’s degree in business administration from Lindenwood University in St. Charles, Missouri, where he was also a collegiate national clay shooting champion from 2009 to 2012. His achievements include winning the California state trap shooting championship by hitting 199 out of 200 targets and receiving a shooting scholarship to Lindenwood University.

Additionally, Fahmie is a seasoned expert in hunting and firearm safety, with a particular focus on encouraging new hunters to embrace outdoor pursuits and working towards increasing the waterfowl population.

When he’s not working for ducks and duck hunters, he can often be found engaging in his favorite outdoor activities, such as shooting trap and sporting clays, snowmobiling, and wake surfing. He also has two loyal dogs at home, a chocolate Lab named Emma and a silver Lab named Charlie.
