Colorado Backcountry Hunters & Anglers recently appointed Adam Gall as their Assistant Central West Slope Regional Director (ARD). As ARD for the Central West Slope, Adam will work directly with West Slope Regional Director (RD) Craig Grother in coordinating the chapter’s West Slope public lands initiatives and building on its track record of protecting wild public lands, waters and wildlife.
Adam was born and raised in a small farm town in southwest Michigan, and moved to northcentral Idaho at age 20. He never wanted to leave the mountains after that, and hasn’t. Adam has worked as a firefighter/forestry tech for the U.S. Forest Service in Idaho, a wolf biologist for the Nez Perce Tribe, also in Idaho, and a science teacher at Hotchkiss High School in Colorado.
In his early teens Adam started hunting whitetails, cottontails and pheasant. Today he lives in Paonia, Colorado, and hunts mule deer and elk, usually with a bow. Adam is also “married to the most wonderful woman on the planet who supports my hunting interests,” he says. Adam and Anastacia feel blessed to call the Gunnison country home and love sharing it with their daughter, Penelope.
Adam currently works as a fishing guide on the Gunnison River and, along with Anastacia, runs Timber to Table Guide Service (timbertotableguideservice.com), an elk and mule deer hunting/outfitting business with a focus on the food and educational aspects of big game hunting. Additionally, Adam is a Backcountry Hunters & Anglers (BHA) Life Member and Colorado BHA Habitat Watch Volunteer for the Gunnison National Forest.
Colorado BHA Chairman David Lien said, “Adam’s boots-on-the-ground knowledge of the public lands and waters he fishes, hunts and guides is matched only by his passion for protecting these public lands for future generations of hunters, anglers and other outdoorsmen and women. Wildlands and wildlife need many more like him.”
