Born and raised in southeast Arkansas, Trent Scogin developed a deep love for the outdoors from an early age, tagging along with his dad on duck hunting trips on public lands. This early exposure fostered an unwavering passion for the sport and the natural resources that support it. After spending over 20 years in the insurance and banking industry, he decided to chase his dream of spending his days working towards positive outcomes for ducks and duck hunters.

“Delta Waterfowl is a muddy, boots-on-the-ground, grassroots organization, and I believe the programmatic work being done in the prairie pothole region through our Hen House and Predator Management programs is incredibly important,” said Scogin. “Plus, our HunteR3 program is critical to bringing the next generation of hunter-conservationists into the field and giving them a track to run on.”

When it comes to hunting, Scogin believes “The Natural State” can’t be beat.

“Standing in the Arkansas’ famed green timber, kicking water, and chasing mallards is my favorite place to be,” he said. “It never gets old.”

When he isn’t working, you can find him cheering on his kids at baseball or softball games or enjoying weekends at the camp, preparing for hunting seasons and working on various projects.

Additionally, Scogin and his family have a beloved 15-pound mini goldendoodle named Ivy. Although she’s not a working dog, she is a cherished family member who is always excited to greet the family when they return home.
