Idaho Chapter Board

Eric Crawford, Co-Chair (North Idaho)

Jeff Klausmann, Co-Chair (East Idaho) 

Originally an East Coaster, Jeff moved to Idaho in 1993 for the fish and wildlife.  He started out as a fishing guide on the Snake River and now owns a environmental consulting company and native plant nursery focused on fish and wildlife habitat restoration.  Jeff is a leader in the conservation community in eastern Idaho and is dedicated to maintaining high environmental stewardship and conservation values.  Jeff has designed over 30 wildlife habitat projects throughout the west that have benefited fish, waterfowl, songbirds and big game species.  Jeff also has some remarkable culinary skills and his mallard recipes are especially amazing.  When not at work, Jeff enjoys getting outside with his family, particularly hunting with his 3 boys and their friends

JD Miller, Treasurer

JD grew up Colorado and started hunting and fishing at an early age.  After college he moved to Idaho to run his fly fishing guide business on the famed waters of the Henry's Fork.  Today  JD lives in Eagle and is the dad to two up and coming hunters and anglers.  Swinging for steelhead and archery elk hunting are JD's passions but he can also be found hunting turkeys, chasing bass, or doing just about anything else that gets him outside. 



Jeff-elk1.JPGJeff Barney, Secretary

Idaho BHA chapter secretary Jeff Barney has been involved since the chapter's inception. He became involved to help protect public access and to stand against those interests attempting to eliminate public lands. Jeff came up with the idea to leave thank you notes with motorized users who park their machines and walk into the back country. The concept has spread nation-wide through BHA chapters.

Jeff enjoys bird hunting (especially for chukars), bow hunting, fly fishing for trout and steelhead, trail running and wildlife photography. He also serves on his local Trout Unlimited chapter board in Boise.

Sean lives in Middleton, Idaho with his wife Lisa and two daughters Maria and Rebecca. Sean works in the high tech industry but spends his free time hunting, fishing, and camping throughout Idaho and the US. He enjoys introducing his daughters to the joys of the outdoor lifestyle. A member of a number of wildlife organizations, and a former Vice President and Board Member of the Idaho Wild Sheep Foundation, Sean has a long history of working for our wildlife, habitat, and land so we can pursue our passions.

Ed Rebman, Board Member (Membership/Events/Fundraising Committee Chair)

Ed grew up in Michigan hunting, fishing and backpacking from an early age.  After discovering the mountains during westerly vacations, Ed and his wife Lisa moved to Idaho in 2014.  They picked Idaho specifically because of the available public land opportunities.  Ed enjoys hunting for elk, deer and grouse, and backpacking to trout fishing locations.  Ed and Lisa spend much of their leisure time hiking and snowshoeing with their dogs on public land. 

Tyler Wicks, Board Member (Communications Committee Chair)  

A native of St. Maries, ID, Tyler grew up racing motorcycles and hunting the thick woods of the Idaho panhandle in search of whitetails and elk.  Like many folks in Idaho, a job opportunity brought Tyler to the Treasure Valley.  Much of the year, Tyler and his wife can be found camping and exploring public lands with their two young children.  As an avid (and responsible) motorcycle rider, Tyler was drawn to BHA in part because of BHA's commitment to help fight the problem with illegal motorized use on our public lands.  After joining the BHA board in 2019, Tyler experienced his best year of hunting, as he arrowed a 6x6 bull elk and a 4x4 mule deer. 

Andrew Anderson, Board Member (Policy Committee Chair)

Andrew lives in Boise, ID with his wife and two young kids and some fine pointing labs.  Andrew works as a dog trainer, mixing upland and waterfowl skills.  He has worked as a corrections officer, an EMT and and as a professional musician.  Being a skilled writer, Andrew enjoys digging into policy issues that affect Idaho's hunters and anglers and communicating the importance of the issues to BHA members.
