Habitat Stewardship Coordinator Oregon

Robert DeSoto

Robert was born and raised in south Louisiana. An outdoorsman for as long as he could walk, he spent most of his time chasing redfish tails in the marshes south of New Orleans or running beagles for rabbits in the Atchafalaya. Whenever there was time, he’d run up to the Ouachita’s of western Arkansas to chase whitetail. It was during a 2-month journey through the Rockies that he decided to make a career of conservation.

Robert moved to Montana in 2021 and hasn’t looked back. Splitting his time among hunting, fishing, and conservation work, he feels incredibly lucky to spend most of his time in the wilds of the western U.S.

As someone who has seen firsthand the impacts of poor access to and poor management of public lands, Robert is passionate about helping Backcountry Hunters & Anglers in their mission.
